Tortizzas

YIELD: 4 servings

TIME: 15 minutes

Inspired by California Pizza Kitchen’s now-discontinued Greek pizza, as well as the Manhattan bar Our/New York’s also-discontinued tortilla pizzas (affectionately called “tortizzas” by the patrons who remember them), this quick lunch or light dinner builds on a sturdy base of crispy, cheesy flour tortillas. A fresh mix of cucumbers, tomatoes and avocado, mounded atop the tortillas, makes you feel like you’re eating a salad with your hands. Feta delivers sharpness and creaminess, as does the simple garlicky yogurt sauce that drapes each tortizza. A drizzle of honey at the end might sound out of place here, but it really brings together all the flavors, and is a popular dipping sauce for pizza in South Korea.

Tortizzas

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 to 4 Persian or mini seedless cucumbers, scrubbed and cut into 1/2-inch dice (about 2 cups)
  • 2 ripe medium tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch dice (about 2 cups)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt (Diamond Crystal)
  • 8 (6-inch) soft flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded low-moisture mozzarella
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano, za’atar or Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 large garlic clove, finely grated
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons honey, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 cup crumbled feta
  • 1 ripe Hass avocado, halved and thinly sliced
  • ½ cup packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves and tender stems

PREPARATION

  1. Place racks in upper and lower thirds of oven and heat oven to 400 degrees. Line two large sheet pans with parchment paper.
  2. Toss the cucumbers, tomatoes and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a colander set in the sink and toss to combine. Let sit to drain excess liquid, about 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, arrange the tortillas on the sheet pans, four per pan, and sprinkle each with the mozzarella and dried oregano. Bake until the cheese is melted and lightly browned, and the tortillas’ edges are crispy but still pale, 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. While the tortillas are baking, make the yogurt sauce: In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, honey and the remaining 1 teaspoon salt.
  5. To serve, evenly divide the drained cucumbers and tomatoes among the tortillas. Top each with feta, avocado and parsley, and spoon the yogurt sauce over everything, leaving some back to serve on the side. As a final flourish, lightly drizzle the tortizzas with honey. You can eat these flat like mini pizzas or folded like tacos.

Say Hello to the Tortizza, a Dinner Life Raft

Gyeran Bap (Egg Rice)

  • YIELD1 serving
  • TIME10 minutes
Gyeran Bap (Egg Rice)

Gyeran bap is a lifesaving Korean pantry meal of fried eggs stirred into steamed white rice. In this version, the eggs fry and puff up slightly in a shallow bath of browned butter. Soy sauce, which reduces in the pan, seasons the rice, as does a final smattering of salty gim, or roasted seaweed. A dribble of sesame oil lends comforting nuttiness, and runny yolks act as a makeshift sauce for the rice, slicking each grain with eggy gold. (You can cook the eggs to your preferred doneness, of course.) This dinner-for-one can be scaled up to serve more: Just double, triple or quadruple all of the ingredient amounts, using a larger skillet or repeating the steps in a small one.

INGREDIENTS

  • ½ tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 cup steamed white rice, preferably short- or medium-grain
  • 1 (5-gram) packet roasted, salted seaweed, such as gim (optional)

PREPARATION

  1. Melt the butter in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally with a rubber spatula, until the melted butter starts to darken in color from yellow to light brown, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.
  2. Crack in the eggs and drizzle the soy sauce and sesame oil on top, cooking until the whites puff up slightly around the edges of the pan and the translucent parts around the yolks start to turn opaque, 2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Watch that the soy sauce doesn’t burn, removing the pan from the heat if necessary.
  3. Scoop the rice into a medium bowl and top with the fried eggs, including all of the buttery soy sauce drippings from the pan. Crush the seaweed directly over the eggs, piling it high. This will seem like a lot of seaweed, but it will wilt as you mix everything together with a spoon, which you should do to disperse the ingredients before eating.
