I am not even on Tik Tok but SOMEHOW, I heard about this viral “Tik Tok Tortilla Trend” sweeping the nation and the moment I tried it, I was HOOKED!! This is the first version I ever tried and it has been one of my family’s all time faves. And it’s no secret I’m a pizza fan…no matter what shape or form! In a Pepperoni Pizza Bowl like this or my perfect Tortilla Pizza right here! Pizza is ALWAYS on my weekly menu!
If you have ever had a Taco Bell Crunch Wrap, you basically have the gist of this “Tortilla Trend.” Basically, a folded tortilla with lots of yummy stuff in it! What I love about this pizza tortilla wrap is that it’s portable and can be eaten on the go! Plus, there are so many variations that you could eat a different version every day of the week!
The ingredients for this recipe are SUPER simple! You can customize them in sooooo many ways, which I outline in the “variations” section below!
Tortillas: You can really use any size, but I have found the burrito size work best.
Sauce: Rao’s Marinara is my all-time favorite sauce for everything!
Pepperoni: This is a Pepperoni Pizza Wrap, but honestly ANY toppings work!! (See variations below for some I’ve tried and LOVE)
Cheese: I love mozzarella and Monterey jack because they melt so well.
HOW TO MAKE A PIZZA TORTILLA WRAP
Step 1: Lay tortilla out in front of you and make one cut, halfway up the tortilla. Then picture your tortilla divided into 4 “quadrants.”
Step 2: Start adding your ingredients–one ingredient per “quadrant.” Quadrants 3 and 4 will be the ones that are in the most direct contact with the heat when you fry it, which is why the cheese goes on those two!
Step 3: Fold quadrant 1 UP, then fold to the RIGHT, then DOWN.
Step 4: Brush top and bottom of your wrap with olive oil or spray lightly with cooking spray.
Step 5: On a preheated griddle or skillet over medium, cook your pizza tortilla wrap for about 3-4 minutes on side, until golden brown and cheese is melted. I keep the heat at medium so the cheese gets melted without burning the outside.

Can I use corn tortillas to make a tortilla wrap?
You can, but remember corn tortillas typically tend to be less pliable than flour tortillas. If you want to use corn tortillas, just put them in the microwave for about 10 seconds to make them more “foldable!” Also, I have yet to see super big corn tortillas and big (burrito size) tortillas work best for this!
RECIPE TIPS & TRICKS
- Set your skillet or griddle to medium heat–not too hot! This will ensure the cheese is nicely melted, but the outside isn’t burned 🙂
- Avoid the temptation to overstuff the tortilla with too many ingredients. It can get messy when cooking if they are overfilled.
- You can customize this “recipe” in a zillion different ways! For best results, remember that Quadrant 3 and 4 are in the most direct contact with your pan. Use those Quadrants for cheese, meat or anything you want warm or melted.
