PIZZA QUESADILLA

I made these Pizza Quesadillas for my kids and I don’t think we’ll ever do regular quesadillas again. They’re so simple but so good. Such a simple combination but everyone loves them.
 
Most of my favorite dishes are a cross between Mexican and Italian food like this Taco Pasta and these Mexican Stuffed Shells. Warm cheese and pepperonis sandwiched in between buttery tortillas and dipped in pizza sauce is really a hands down hit any way you fix it.

All you have to do is spread a thin layer of pizza sauce on the inside of the tortilla and layer mozzarella cheese and pepperoni.

HOW TO MAKE PIZZA QUESADILLAS

  1. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat and fry the pepperoni until crisp. Transfer onto a paper towel to drain.
  2. Brush each tortilla with a thin layer of pizza sauce. You want the layer so thin that if you turned it over, none would drip.
  3. Sprinkle cheese on top of the sauce on the bottom tortilla. Top with pepperoni and other toppings, if desired. Sprinkle with another layer of cheese and place the other tortilla on top (sauce side in).
  4. Preheat a medium cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add a little butter if desired and melt.
  5. Gently place quesadilla in the pan and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side, until cheese is melted and tortillas are crispy.
  6. Slice into quarters and serve with a little bowl of warm pizza sauce for dipping.
