I know Pepperoni Pizza Quesadillas sounds a little ... umm... different... after all... that doesn't sound very Mexican at all... well it's not... a little Italian.. a little Mexican.. it's all good.
This is a quick and easy lunch... kind of like a slice of pizza with a top. Trust me.. it's good!
I don't use my Quesadilla maker for this one.. I tried.. but it failed .. the top of the maker was too heavy and squished out the sauce and cheese all over the place.. I was picking cheese out from in between all those little nooks and crannies for days... okay hours...
Use the small tortillas and a small skillet... slide it out onto a plate and place another plate over it and flip it... then slide it back into the skillet to brown the second side... it really was easy.
Don't over- do the quantity of sauce.. it will spread... drizzle the sauce toward the center of the tortilla.
I use thinly sliced pepperoni from the deli section of the grocery store.. the thicker sliced pepperoni is too hard .. it will be tough to cut this into wedges if you use that.
I used pepperoni, pizza sauce and shredded mozzarella... you can use whatever pizza toppings you prefer.
I hope you try it!
