pizza quesadillas

Every Friday is pizza night here at the Fuzz household. We love pizza. We either make it at home or we order out from a different mom and pop type place, or papa murphy's. Recently, our daughter said, "I know mommy! How 'bout we make it like a quesadilla but we put pizza toppings inside instead! We can call it a pizza quesadilla!" She's not the first one to think of this, but in her mind she is. I love how creative she is. I remember my mom making us personal pizzas on tortillas when I was little. I loved when she did that. I know this doesn't fall in the super healthy category, but this is how we made ours.

pizza quesadillas
tortillas (any kind)
tomato sauce, pizza sauce, etc.
mozzarella cheese or other lowfat shredded blend
toppings (pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, olives, peppers, pineapple, etc.)

Heat a large frying pan on medium heat. Spray with PAM or other cooking spray of your choice. Spread tomato sauce on half of a tortilla. Top with desired toppings, seasonings, and cheese on top. Fold in half. Place in frying pan and cook on one side until golden. Flip and do the same on other side. Transfer to a plate and cut into triangles with pizza cutter. Easy. And the kids loved these.

We love Pizza Quesadillas in our house too!

Not sure if you ever tried La Tortilla Factory Low Carb/High Fiber Tortillas. They are only 80cals per tortilla and taste great! Therefore it can help make them a little healthier. :-)

They are a great size for pizza although we use the wraps for all of my meals too – breakfast (egg burritos), lunch (all types of wraps such as turkey, veggie..etc) and dinner although they can be also used for snacks (you just have to get creative).

If you are interested, we list one of my favorite recipes (Italian Veggie Pizza) on our site. Although you can definitely swap out any of the veggies for your favorites. They are only 195 calories per pizza too (with 80cal tortilla and also low calorie lifetime cheese).

Hope you like the recipe! Thanks for great post and forward to reading more!

Great recipe, thanks for sharing! This can easily be made gluten free, yay!! I am highly allergic to wheat so I am going to try this with corn tortillas. Yum.
