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.
