I used a brown rice tortilla for the pizza crust. If you really want to load up your pizza, like with vegan sour cream or guacamole, you may want to use a thicker pizza crust. A tortilla can only hold so much, after all.
In my experience I have found that a tortilla pizza is the best way to use brown rice tortillas, especially when you get a batch that is starting to crack like my latest batch.
Luckily, I had this recipe planned. If I would of had wraps or a burrito planned, I would of been swearing up a storm. You just never know when you'll get a bad batch. I try to only make the wrap and burrito recipes when I have some spinach amaranth tortillas from the Farmer's Market in my hands. Sometimes the maker of the tortillas runs out, so it's hard to plan those recipes.
If you've found some good vegan gluten free tortillas other than the ones I used here, please let me know. I'm always up to trying new brands.
Customize To Your Liking
If you don't like an ingredient, switch it out. There's many people who avoid red bell peppers because they are in the nightshade family, which cause immune reactions. You could replace the red pepper with zucchini or mushroom.
The same goes with tomatoes, which are also in the nightshade family. There are enchilada sauce recipes online using ingredients that aren't in the nightshade family, like a cilantro based or vegetable based sauce.
Don't like corn? Add more beans or some tofu. Adjust the ingredients to your liking. Play around with the recipe and have fun!
