These Tortilla Trail Pizzas Really Hit the Spot after a Day of Hiking and Backpacking 

Favorite Backpacking Recipe - Tortilla Trail Pizza

Tortilla Trail Pizza has been one of our favorite backpacking meals for many years. We first made them on Boy Scout trips, when our cooking skills were limited to Ramen Noodles and Pop Tarts, because they were so easy to make. Tortilla Trail Pizzas are also great for groups or when adventuring with picky eaters, since everyone can create their own pizza with their favorite toppings.  


Ingredients For Tortilla Trail Pizza

Backpacking Recipe - Tortilla Trail Pizza Ingredients

  1. 6" Flour Tortillas - larger tortillas can be used if you have a larger pan
