Easy and elegant, these dessert pizzas are a novel way to use tortillas. The addition of cardamom, along with lemon zest and apricot jam, gives the pizzas a Mediterranean flavor. Use any of your favorite berries for the topping.


  • 4 whole tortilla(s), flour, whole-wheat
  • 4 teaspoon vegetable oil spread, butter-flavored
  • 4 teaspoon sugar substitute
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • 1 1/3 cup(s) cheese, ricotta, part-skim
  • 3 tablespoon preserves, apricot, sugar-free
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom, ground
  • 4 cup(s) raspberries
    yellow and red, or blueberries, or a mixture
  • mint, fresh
    leaves, for garnish (optional)


  • 1

    Heat the oven to 400°F. Place the tortillas on 2 baking sheets. Brush with the melted margarine and sprinkle evenly with the sugar substitute and cinnamon. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes, until crisp. Cool briefly.

    Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together the ricotta, 4 teaspoons of the apricot jam, the lemon zest, and cardamom. Divide the ricotta mixture among the 4 tortillas, spreading it almost to the edges.

    In a small saucepan, heat the remaining 5 teaspoons jam over low heat until melted. Scatter the berries over the pizzas and brush the berries with the melted jam. Garnish with mint leaves, if using. Serve warm.
