  • 2 flour tortillas
  • 2 sprays olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
  • 4-8 oz. fresh mozzarella
  • 1 cup fresh tomatoes chopped - OR-
  • 1/3 cup marinara sauce
  • fresh basil chopped


  • Preheat oven to 375ºF; line baking pan with parchment; lightly oil parchment paper
  • Cut tortillas into quarters
  • Place tortilla quarters on parchment lined baking dish; lightly spray triangles with oil; sprinkle a small amount of garlic powder on each triangle (optional)
  • Bake tortilla triangles for 8-10 minutes; remove from oven; turn oven setting to Broil
  • Add tomato (or marinara) to triangles; top with fresh mozzarella
  • Place triangles under broiler for 3-5 minutes or until cheese begins to melt
  • Remove from oven and garnish with fresh basil


  • For the crispy base of the Margherita nachos, use a regular, or low-carb flour tortilla. 
  • Fresh mozzarella is a must for these delicious nachos. It doesn't take much, but shredded mozzarella seriously misses the mark.
