*I was not impressed by the Wheat Belly Tortilla from the Wheat Belly Cookbook. The dough was wet and almost impossible to roll out without it sticking to the parchment paper. The result was something more like a pita than a tortilla (probably because I wasn't able to roll it thin enough). And the taste was sorta earthy and dense, like some kind of weird health bread you'd find in a hippie bakery. 

It satisfied my craving for a Breakfast Burrito but....meh. 

I've looked up some other low carb gluten free tortilla recipes to try (like this one or this one) and the common factor seems to be a dough that is so thin that it is pourable rather than being something heavy enough to roll out. It makes sense that this would result in something more like the light and thin flour tortilla that I'm familiar with.
