Other quick pizzas ala tortilla pizza with pepperoni

Are you looking for other quick pizzas? Below you will find links to different pizzas that don’t take much more than fifteen minutes to put together. Here there are both pizzas on tortilla pancakes and pita pizza. For example, you can mix a few types and make tortilla pizzas with different fillings for dinner. The kids certainly wouldn’t complain about getting small pita pizzas in the packed lunch either!

Tortilla Pizza with Serrano Ham: This is my personal favourite. Pizza with serrano ham and mushrooms on a tortilla pancake. Yum!

Pepperoni pita pizzas: Here’s a pizza that’s very similar to this pepperoni tortilla pizza – just with a pita bread base instead.

Pit pizza with salmon and avocado: This recipe is perhaps right on the border of what you can call pizza because it has mascarpone, salmon and avocado. Nevertheless, it is a really delicious way to eat fish.
Tortilla pizza with bresaola: Here is a slightly different variant with bresaola and whole tomatoes.
Tortilla pizza with salmon and dill dressing: This is similar to the pita pizza above with salmon, but with tomato sauce instead of mascarpone and with parmesan.

Tacos with Mexican Pulled Meat and Pico De Gallo

Delicious crispy and juicy carnitas, – the Mexicans’ answer to pulled pork. An absolutely wonderful dish that should be enjoyed for several hours in the oven, so you can meanwhile enjoy the fantastic scent that spreads in the house.

It is packed with flavour and is really easy to make.

You can cook it as described in the recipe below, – but you can also choose to cook the meat in one piece, and give it 10-11 hours at 110-120 degrees.

You can also advantageously rub the meat the day before, but it is not a must, therefore I have failed to do so in my description.

Serve in soft or crispy tacos, and top with a delicious pico de gallo, guacamole and cold sour cream.

If all the meat is not to be eaten at once, it can easily be stored refrigerated or frozen. The meat just needs to be pulled apart first – as it is easiest when they are hot. Wait to fry your carnitas crispy if it needs to be cooled or frozen. Take the amount from what is to be served and fry it crispy – and cool / freeze the rest together with some of the marinade.


2.4 kg Short Ribs Bone In
2 oranges
1 large onion, cut into rings
4 cloves garlic, cut into slices
2 limes
1 / 2-1 fresh red chilli, sliced ​
1 cinnamon stick
1 tablespoon crushed cumin
1 tablespoon crushed coriander
1 tbsp oregano
2 teaspoons mild chilli
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika (can be omitted)
fresh chilli
Salt and pepper

Here’s how you do it

Cut the roast into 8 large ribs. Season these with salt and pepper on all sides and place them in an ovenproof dish.

Mix the spices in a bowl and pour them over the meat – rub and turn the meat well with the spices.

Add the cinnamon stick together with the sliced ​​onions, garlic and chilli – by the meat.

Halve oranges and glue and mash the juice over the meat and into the dish. If necessary, add the peels from orange and lime – remember that these must be organic and rinsed thoroughly.

Cover the dish with tin foil, and place it in a preheated oven at 130 degrees, an ordinary oven, for 3 hours. After 3 hours, remove the tin foil and fry the meat for another 2 hours at 130 degrees.

Feel if the meat is tender, – it must fall completely apart if you pull it with 2 forks, otherwise, it must have a little longer.

Take the dish out of the oven and now turn it up to 220 degrees.

Take the meat out of the dish, place it on a baking sheet or deep frying pan, and pull it apart with 2 forks. Drizzle it with a few dl of the marinade in which it is cooked, season with a little salt and pepper and turn it well together.

When the oven is 220 degrees, put the meat back in the oven, and it must now be fried until it is crispy and delicious, approx. 30 minutes, – turn it once along the way.

Serve your crispy juicy carnitas in puffy soft tacos, top with pico de gallo and guacamole.
