When it comes to quick dinner recipes that everyone loves, it doesn’t get any easier, or more kid-friendly, than a pizza quesadilla!
This is one of the meals I explain to my children how to make as they wolf it down, hoping this will somehow keep them from starving when they go off to college.
I recommend serving marinara on the side, rather than putting sauce right in the quesadilla. Less messy that way. One thing is for sure, there are never any leftovers when I make these pizza quesadillas.
- 6 (8-inch) flour tortillas
- 2 cups marinara or pizza sauce
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 (7 oz) bag sliced pepperoni
- Spread a thin layer of marinara sauce (about 1 tablespoon) over each tortillas.
- Top 1/2 of each tortilla with shredded mozzarella, followed by a layer of pepperoni.
- Fold the other half of the tortilla over the pepperoni and cheese.
- Heat a skillet or grill pan over medium heat.
- Cook the quesadillas for about 3 minutes per side, or until they are light golden brown and the cheese is melted.
- Warm the remaining marinara to use as a dipping sauce.
Who Dished It Up First: This is an original recipe, although not an original idea, I’m sure.
