Easy

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

INGREDIENTS

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

INSTRUCTIONS

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.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
