Looking for a new twist on pizza? These Pizza Quesadillas are easy to make and fun for the family!
Back when Allison was really little and we were living on a tight budget, I was looking for new and delicious recipes that were still cheap and I came across an interesting concept called pizza quesadillas. I’d never had quesadillas that weren’t Mexican-inspired, so I decided to make them one night. Needless to say, we’re hooked. And it’s so customizable; you can add anything that you usually add to pizza and it’ll turn out great.
Start with a burrito sized tortilla shell and add some pizza sauce on half of the tortilla. (Either use jarred sauce or make your own!) Next, add some shredded mozzarella cheese, then add your favorite toppings! Our basic favorites are pepperoni and jalapenos.
Now here’s the best part. If you have a George Foreman grill, you can cook your quesadilla quickly and easily! Just fold your tortilla in half and place it in the George Foreman and close the lid, cooking for about 3 minutes. Just check for the brown lines on the tortilla.
After the quesadilla is fully cooked, use a spatula to remove the quesadilla and cut it into 4 pieces.
You can serve with a side of pizza sauce for dipping, and any favorite side items! It’s a cheap and easy meal, and kid approved!
