- Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the tortillas on 2 large baking sheets lined with nonstick baking paper and spread with the tomato purée.
- Arrange the mozzarella slices and tomatoes on top of the tortilla. Bake in the oven for 6-8 mins, until the cheese has melted and the edges of the tortillas are golden.
- Meanwhile, blitz the pine nuts, most of the basil leaves, garlic, oil and hard cheese in a food processor to make a pesto.
- Remove the pizzas from the oven, spoon over the pesto and garnish with the remaining basil leaves. Serve immediately.
