Pepperoni Pizzadillas


This is a recipe for those of you with kids.  Although my grown-up husband loved it just as much (if not more) than my daughter did.  It's all the flavors of pepperoni pizza in a fun quesadilla form.  I like to think of it as "weekend" fun, but "weeknight" easy.  I did a humongous grocery shopping trip yesterday and was totally beat by the time we got home, so this was the perfect thing to have for dinner.  In fact, it was so easy that I was honestly surprised when I realized dinner was ready!  It's an adaptation of one I saw on MyRecipes.


Pepperoni Pizzadillas


Ingredients:
4 (8”) flour tortillas
2 cups (8 oz) mozzarella cheese, shredded
40 slices pepperoni, about 2.5 oz.
Cooking spray
1 cup pizza or marinara sauce


Directions:
Preheat oven to 400°.


Lay tortillas on a baking sheet.  Sprinkle ¼ cup cheese over each tortilla, and divide the pepperoni among tortillas. Top each with another ¼ cup cheese. Bake for 5 minutes. 


Remove from oven, and carefully fold each tortilla in half, pressing down to make sure the cheese “seals”. Spray top side lightly with cooking spray.  Bake an additional 5 minutes or until browned, flip over, spray other side, and bake a final 5 minutes. 


Cut each quesadilla into halves or thirds.  Serve with pizza sauce to dip.


Makes 4 servings.


The original recipe called for fat-free tortillas, less cheese, and turkey pepperoni.  I would have loved to have used turkey pepperoni, but while shopping, I realized that it was literally twice the price of regular pepperoni.  As a single income household, we simply don't have room in our budget for expensive upgrades like that.

I think that in the future I will "adultify" my own quesadilla with chopped onion and mushrooms.


 I served these with a simple salad.


This is how I laid out the pepperoni, about 10 slices per tortilla.
