Easy Pizza Quesadillas

Easy Pizza Quesadillas

15-minute recipe Serves 1-2
When pizza and quesadilla combine to make pizzadilla, delicious things happen. Fry up this quick dish in the morning for a kid-friendly lunch that requires no reheating (and just happens to be nut-, soy-, shellfish- and egg-free). Or make a few extras and serve with veggie sticks for a fast and fun family dinner.

Prep: 5 mins | Cook: 5 mins

    Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Arrange pepperoni and cook until crispy on both sides, flipping halfway, about 30 seconds per side. Carefully wipe the pan clean. (If short on time, skip this step and simply add the un-crisped pepperoni with the cheese in the next step.)

    Working quickly, lay both tortillas on a work surface and divide 2 tbsp pizza sauce over both, spreading with the bottom of a spoon. If using, sprinkle oregano over 1 tortilla. Top with a 1/2 cup of cheese, then layer with the pepperoni and remaining cheese. Top with the remaining tortilla, sauce side down.

    Place the pizza quesadilla on the frying pan, still at medium heat, and cook until browned, about 2 minutes. Carefully flip and cook another 2-3 minutes, pressing slightly. It’s done when the cheese is melted and the tortilla is lightly browned on both sides.

    Transfer to a cutting board and let cool for 2 minutes before cutting into 4-6 triangles. Let cool a couple of minutes more and place in a sealed lunch container with another small container filled with the remaining pizza sauce, for dipping. If using, garnish with basil leaves before sealing the container.

    Time-Saving Tip: For an even easier morning, assemble the pizzadilla the evening before, but don’t cook it. Store it in the fridge overnight and skip straight to step three in the morning.
