Pizza Quesadillas

Ingredients:  

  • flour tortillas
  • jarred pizza sauce
  • shredded cheese
  • pepperoni slices (or meat of choice)
  • dried oregano
  • optional red pepper flakes 
To a dry skillet, add the flour tortilla.  You don't need to add oil or cooking spray.  The size tortilla you use is up to you.  Add a couple spoons of pizza sauce (I didn't measure), and a handful of cheese.  I had the fire on about medium.  I added the cheese near the bottom to give it time to start melting while I was adding the other stuff.  Next add the pepperoni pieces.  I cut them in half with a pizza wheel.  Feel free to use deli meats (leftover ham/turkey/ground beef/Italian sausage) cut into small pieces.  Season this baby up!  I added dried oregano as I mentioned.  But you could use Italian seasoning, or dried basil as well.  If you have older kids (or men watching a ballgame), they may like the red pepper flakes.  Consider leaving them off for the younger kids.  

Now notice that I have TRIED to keep my ingredients contained on one side of the tortilla.  Now take the other side (the side without the goodies), fold it over to match, and press it down.  If you don't have a panini press, use another skillet.   This first side shouldn't take too much longer before you need to flip it to the other side.  Slide it onto a cutting board, cut with a long knife or pizza wheel, and watch them go fast!   Isn't ooey gooey cheese just the BEST?!  Don't forget that warm pizza sauce for dipping!  - oh.  And some extra napkins.  Ha!
