Super Easy Pepperoni Pizza Quesadillas
All the deliciousness of homemade pepperoni pizza but without all the work! A great kid-friendly meal or snack that is always hit.
Servings: 2 quesadillas
- 2 flour tortillas, taco size (8 inch)
- 2 tbsp. tomato sauce (spaghetti, pizza, pasta or marinara sauce all work)
- 10 to 12 slices pepperoni
- 6 to 8 tbsp. shredded mozzarella cheese
- additional tomato sauce for dipping optional
This step is optional, but, if using regular pepperoni will make the quesadillas less greasy and less messy. Place a paper towel on a microwaveable plate. Spread the pepperoni on the paper towel in a single layer and microwave for 20 to 30 seconds- just enough to cook the pepperoni a bit, melt some of the fat and allow it to be absorbed by the paper towel.
Spread tomato sauce evenly over entire tortilla in a thin layer. Add pepperoni slices, covering half of each tortilla.
Sprinkle the pepperoni with a layer of cheese and fold the "top" of the tortilla over.
Melt a bit of butter in a skillet. Place 2 quesadillas in the skillet and cook 2 to 3 minutes over medium heat ntil lightly browned.
While the first side of the quesadilla is cooking, lightly butter the other side of each tortilla. Then flip the tortillas over and cook until the second side is browned.
Remove from pan and let rest for a couple of minutes, then slice each tortilla into quarters or thirds and, if desired, serve with warm pasta sauce for dipping.
