Lunchtime Caprese Pizza Wraps

Lunchtime Caprese Pizza Wraps. Delicious and quick wraps with the flavours of a caprese salad. Suitable for vegetarians.


As you know I mostly eat a vegan diet at home, as my husband its vegan, but I'm still sometimes tempted by cheese. I don't eat as much as I used to, but I still have my moments.

These caprese pizza wraps are one of those moments. Don't get me wrong they would be good without the mozzarella balls and I use dairy free pesto anyway but I decided to include them this time. What can I say, they caught my eye when I was strolling around Lidl.

I started off with a Mediterranean soft tortilla wrap also picked up during my stroll around Lidl. They are actually really nice. They exceeded my expectations, they are lovely and soft and much nicer than Tesco's own brand tortillas (sorry Tesco).

I start with my tortilla and spread it with pesto. I used Sacla dairy free pesto. I always keep a few jars at the ready in my store cupboard. It's pretty good, but homemade pesto would be even better.

Why not try my Kale, Coriander and Hemp Pesto? It's seriously tasty!

So tortilla wrap, spread with pesto, then some crisp, shredded iceberg lettuce, next I added cherry tomatoes and sundried cherry tomatoes (I rather like these, they're from M&S), basil and mozzarella balls.

I quickly fold in the sides, roll the furthest away edge towards me, chop in half and it's ready.

Absolutely delicious!

Lunchtime Caprese Pizza Wraps
A delicious lunchtime wrap full of the flavours of Italy. This wrap uses shop-bought pesto, but homemade would be even better. It has the flavours of a caprese salad or a margherita pizza. Eat it fresh like this or why not grill it in a panini machine or George Foreman grill for a real pizza wrap?

Ingredients
  • 1 soft tortilla wrap
  • 1 tbsp pesto
  • a few leaves of iceberg lettuce
  • 5 cherry tomatoes
  • 6 - 10 sundried cherry tomatoes (or regular sundried tomatoes, use less of these)
  • a handful of fresh basil leaves
  • 7 small mozzarella balls
Instructions

1. Prepare your ingredients. Wash, pat dry and shred your lettuce,wash, dry and cut your cherry tomatoes in half, pat your sundried tomatoes in kitchen paper. I forgot to do this, so my wrap dripped. It was tasty, but messy.
2. Lay your tortilla on a plate and spread with pesto.
3. Top with your shredded lettuce and two types of tomato, then scatter across the basil leaves and mozzarella balls.
4, Fold in the sides, then roll the part furthest away from you towards you firmly. Once rolled, cut in half and serve.
5. Enjoy!

    1. Not sure about having it for breakfast, but I could maybe be persuaded if it was a late breakfast.

    1. Well remember to dry off the sundried tomatoes and I'd wrap them in kitchen tissue then tinfoil to catch any drips.

  12. We buy super soft Middle Eastern flatbreads from one of our local grocery shops, they are super soft and we love them wraps. I did a grilled halloumi one recently, think that would work well with your lovely pesto. This combo right up my street!

    1. Oh I bet those are wonderful. We always love the pitta in the north of Cyprus (Turkish), that and the village bread is wonderful. Nothing like the dried offerings we have here generally.

  13. It sounds amazing! That pesto - I need to try that for sure!! And for your hubby, you can always try making vegan mozzarella with aquafaba! I haven't tried it myself, but I know many have had great success!

    1. I've never tried making vegan cheese. He usually isn't bothered so we don't eat much of regular cheese either. However he did try a new one from Tesco this week and it melted well in a quesadilla and he really enjoyed it.

  14. These look so good and do sound like a perfect lunch! I've tried those Lidl wraps and agree that they're particularly good (we've got some of their wraps in for tonight's dinner actually!).

    1. Enjoy Natalie. I'm now wondering what you are having them with :)

  15. Great idea - I love wraps but am terrible at only using a few from the packet and letting the rest die a slow fridge death as I get bored of the same filling! Very shameful!

    I love those mozzarella balls, great for naughty snacking!
