My family loves pepperonia pizza. Really, who doesn’t? So I always have pepperoni slices and pizza cheese in my fridge so my little man can help me with homemade pizza now and again. Last Saturday for lunch, we didn’t really have time to bake refridgerated pizza dough, so I decided to make our “pizza” into a quesadilla instead. My son and I thought they were absolutely delicious and super easy for a quick lunch.
2 Whole Wheat Tortillas
1 cup of Shredded Pizza Cheese
8-12 Pepperoni Slices (I had Turkey Pepperoni on hand)
Butter for the outside of the quesadilla
1/4 cup of Marinara for dipping
Heat your skillet to medium-hot. Butter one side of each tortilla. Place one side butter down on the hot skillet. Pile that tortilla with the cheese and pepperoni slices. Place the other torilla on top, butter side up. Flip the quesadilla to the other side once the first side has browned (about 2-3 minutes). Once both sides are as crispy as you like and your cheese is melted, place the quesadilla on a cutting board and cut into six slices. Use the marinara as your dipping sauce. Enjoy!
