Pizzadilla, a quick and easy, family-friendly meal

Last night (Easter), I went over to my parents’ house for some homemade pizza.  When we ended up with extra pizza sauce, I knew exactly what I wanted to try to make…Pizzadillas!

Basically this is a quesadilla made with pizza toppings and you dip it in pizza sauce instead of salsa…super simple, I had all the ingredients I needed…and FAST!

Ingredients you need:

  • Any toppings for pizza you like
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Tortillas (I chose wheat)
  • Pizza sauce

That’st IT!

Now, for assembly – first, cut up all of the toppings you plan to use. I chose green peppers, onions, mushrooms, black olives and grilled chicken (I probably would have used another protein, but it was what I had in my refrigerator).



Next, warm up the tortillas…I like to warm them up on both sides to make them easier to fold over.




Then it’s time to add in your toppings. I started with a mozzarella cheese base, put on my toppings and then sprinkled a little mozzarella on top – that way the cheese help the tortilla “stick.”




Fold over the tortilla and let it cook – flipping to get it evenly cooked.



Once it’s done cooking, cut it into quarters.



Doesn’t it look delicious?!



Serve with the pizza sauce for dipping – and if you need a good recipe for homemade pizza sauce, check my Grandma Schwinn’s recipe here.



This recipe was SUPER easy, and the best thing is that you can make some for your whole family and tailor each to your family’s likes…you could do all cheese, all meat, whatever you want.
