When I visited New Jersey recently, I experienced something incredible. It was pizza, but unlike any pizza I’d ever had before. There was a beautiful thin, foldable crust and big generous slices. And the pizza was topped with….tortellini, tasty cheese-filled tortellini covered in a white sauce and mozzarella cheese. It was probably the best slice of pizza I’d ever had. The combination of delicious, creamy, cheesy pasta and handheld pizza was mind-blowing. I couldn’t believe how well it worked.
After I ate that pizza, I could not get it out of my mind. Unfortunately, finding awesome pizza like that in CNY is just not possible. They primarily stick to traditional toppings here, and you couldn’t find a big, generously-sized slice if your life depended on it. Luckily, there was still a way to be reunited with my beloved tortellini pizza without going all the way back to Jersey. I could make my own!
Turns out, my Tortellini Pizza was even better than the stuff I had in Jersey. I made a thin, crisp crust and blanketed it in a homemade creamy parmesan sauce. Then, I topped it with tender tortellinis, a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese, and some fresh oregano. Finally, I baked this baby until it was golden brown and bubbling.
