Mamas Monday Meals: Easy Pepperoni Pizza Quesadillas!

June 2013


Here is the yummy dinner we will be having tonight!! We have had this before and it was a hit with the kiddos and super easy for me to make!

You will be amazed at how fast your family will down these, make sure you make enough! Laughing


8 flour tortillas (I used Trader Joe’s handmade tortillas)

8 ounces of shredded mozzarella cheese

⅓ lb pepperoni

1 16-ounce jar of pizza sauce

Optional: 1 6-ounce can of sliced black olives, 1 cup of sliced cremini mushrooms


Heat a medium skillet over medium heat and fry the pepperoni until crisp. Transfer on a paper towel to drain.

Brush each tortilla with a thin layer of pizza sauce (so thin that if you turned it over, none would drip).

Sprinkle cheese on top of the sauce on the bottom tortilla. Top with pepperoni and other toppings, if desired. Sprinkle with another layer of cheese and place the other tortilla on top (sauce side in).

Pre-heat a medium cast-iron skilled over medium heat.

Lay quesadilla in the pan and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side, until cheese is melted and tortillas are crispy.

Slice into quarters and serve with a little bowl of pizza dipping sauce.
