Preparing the mushrooms: Cut the mushrooms in 1/4” slices. Lightly brush or spray jellyroll pan with olive oil. Spread the mushroom slices onto the pan in a single layer. Brush with the balance of the olive oil and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Bake for 6 minutes. Remove from oven, turn the mushroom slices over. Return pan to the oven and continue baking for another 6 to 8 minutes until the slices are golden-brown at the edges. Remove from oven and transfer to a plate to cool.
Assembling the wraps:
Lay the 4 tortillas on a flat surface.
Spread 2 teaspoons of mayo on each tortilla
Arrange the mushrooms in a row across the bottom third of the tortillas.
Top with the mozzarella slices and sprinkle them with salt and pepper to taste.
Top with a row of piquillo peppers and the baby arugula leaves.
Roll each tortilla tightly, starting at the bottom and tucking in the filling as you roll towards the top. Place the tortillas on a cutting board, seam-side down, and cut in half. Serve immediately.
