  1. Preheat the broiler. Place each tortilla on a baking sheet and toast under the broiler for three minutes, turning once, until tortillas begin to brown and turn crispy.
  2. Meanwhile, mix olive oil and garlic in a cup.
  3. Carefully remove tortillas on their baking sheets and rest on a heatproof surface.
  4. Spoon oil-and-garlic mixture over each tortilla, and spread with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle each tortilla with Romano cheese.
  5. Slide the baking sheet and tortilla back under the broiler for two to three minutes, until cheese begins to melt.
  6. Then arrange red pepper and chicken pieces over each tortilla, and broil for three additional minutes, watching closely to prevent burning.
  7. Salt and pepper to taste, slice on a cutting board, and serve pizza-style.
