A pizzadilla isn’t an entirely new concept. (Google it.)

But, I never really tried one until getting a hold of Weelicious’ recipe that included dipping in tomato sauce.

It was a hit.

Well, there’s no hardship in getting my son to eat pizza sauce, but quesedillas were becoming a little tired around here.

Monterrey Jack, cheddar, Mexican mix left over from a taco night… I was done with those cheeses.

Hence- two easy versions of pizzas on a tortilla, AKA pizzadillas. 


Pepperoni – all you have to do is sprinkle the mozzarella (mine is from Fresh n’ Easy) on a tortilla. Take leftover pepperoni from your past pizza night (Or use some of your mini pepperoni you have stashed away for emergencies like I do) and lay it on top. Sprinkle a touch more cheese to help the pepperoni stick.


Margherita- slice up some tomato (big slices? Dice it up? whatever!) and tear up some basil. Lay on top of a thick bed of shredded mozarella.

Feeding one four-year-old? Just cover half.

Making it parent-sized or to share- cover that whole tortilla, baby.

But really- this is a great way to use up bits and pieces. A little diced bacon and BBQ chicken? Oh my. While we’re there, add slices of avocado and maybe sprinkle in a little corn.

My husband would want pepperoni and sausage.

Or there is nothing wrong with bell peppers, ham and pineapple, AKA one of my favorite pizzas ever.

I mean, see how easy this is?

This can even go party style- chicken, hot sauce and green onions for this weekend?

There are a million options out there.

So, a new snack option for our repertoire that will mean keeping mozzarella around for a while.

What new fun snack or meal options have you discovered?

    Yum! I can’t believe I’ve never tried this. We do quesadillas with a variety of mexican flavors, but have stayed in that box. Now you have me thinking ham & cheddar would be divine.

      I’m pretty sure my husband has but sandwich meat in his before so he would agree!
