Pizza Quesadillas {"Pizzadillas"}

Quesadillas are my ultimate go-to quick meal or snack. My husband and sons love them, and they are quick, easy, and cheap. What more can you ask for? One of my favorite versions are my "pizzadillas." You can use any pizza toppings you want to fill them. My sons love Hawaiian pizzadillas and my husband loves pepperoni with lots of red pepper flakes. Customize them and make them your own! The best part is they'll be ready in minutes!

Recipe and Photos by Jill Chall

1 whole wheat burrito-size tortilla
1/2 c plus 2 T mozzarella cheese
5-6 pepperoni
1 T chopped black olives
1 T chopped red or green peppers
2 T pizza sauce
1 T grated, fresh Parmesan cheese
1/8 t dried oregano

On one half of the tortilla, sprinkle on 1/2 c mozzarella cheese. Layer on the pepperoni, olives, and peppers. Sprinkle the pizza sauce over the toppings. Sprinkle the last 2 T of mozzarella and the 1 T of Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle the oregano on top. Fold over the tortilla and place in a heated, dry non stick skillet. Cook over medium-low heat for 2-3 minutes until golden and crispy. Flip and cook the other side for 2-3 minutes until it is also golden and crispy. Slide the quesadilla onto a cutting board. Wait 1 minute, then cut with a pizza cutter into triangles. Serve with extra heated pizza sauce and enjoy!
