Mastering the Art of Dorm Room Pizza Recipe without Oven
Summary: Learn how to make pizza in a dorm room setting without an oven. All you need are tortillas, marinara sauce, cheese, and your preferred toppings to make these treats.
Cuisine: Mexican
Recipe type: Pizza
Serves: 4
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 4 Tortillas
  • 1 jar of marinara sauce
  • 1 bag of shredded cheese
  • Enough toppings to cover your 4 tortilla pizzas. Toppings that can be easily warmed up are ideal, as you might not have the option of cooking raw meats or grilling vegetables.
  1. Lay your tortillas out on a clean working surface. Spread the marinara sauce all the way around the tortilla, keeping the last ½ inch clear of any sauce. This acts as the crust on the end of the tortilla pizza. If you have access to a hot plate, put the sauce in a pot and warm it up before spreading it on the tortilla shell.
  2. Spread shredded cheese on top of the sauce. You want to get a rather uniform spread across the entire tortilla, to ensure that it is going to melt easily and properly once in the microwave or toaster oven.
  3. If you have a hot plate, throw the toppings in a pan and heat them up. If you do not, stick with toppings that heat up quickly and easily. Avoid toppings that require you to thoroughly cook them before being used on the pizza.
  4. Put the tortilla pizzas in to the microwave and cook on high for approximately 5 minutes. Check to make sure that the cheese is melting and everything is progressing properly. Once the pizza is done, eat it by folding up the tortilla sides to get that great pizza experience without an oven.
