So tonight my hubby is out of town for work (boo) and so it is just Emily and myself. The other kiddos are at their other homes this week. I hate when he is gone, besides being lonely, I always feel like I pig out and eat horribly when he is gone. I don't really feel like cooking a nice meal for just Em and I. So I told myself this morning when I got up I wasn't going to let him being gone for a few days ruin my eating somewhat healthy. I won't stuff my face, I won't stuff my face, I won't stuff my face!!!!
OK, so I guess Pizza Quesadillas are not really healthy, but I am a pizza fanatic and really just wanted to sit down and eat a whole frozen pizza! Don't tempt me, because I can finish one, I have done it before and it's not pretty! Yikes! Anyways, I was searching my Pinterest recipe board and found a link for Pizza Quesadillas! Looked pretty quick and easy and something I could whip up and not have a ton of leftovers tempting me every time I open the fridge.
HERE is the original recipe that I based my own recipe off of tonight. Her recipe called for making more but I just ended up making three Quesadillas and put the leftover sauce, mushrooms, cheese and pepperoni in the fridge for another time I get a hankering for pizza! Believe me, it will be sooner than later.
Below is my version of the Pizza Quesadilla recipe that can be found HERE.
Flour Tortillas (need 2 for each Quesadilla)
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Put a light layer of pizza sauce on each Tortilla. Next up is shredded Mozzarella cheese and your toppings of choice. Tonight I went with mushrooms and turkey pepperoni because that's what I had, but you could add anything that sounds good. Put another layer of cheese on top and place in a heated skillet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Place another tortilla, sauce side down, onto your loaded tortilla and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until it is lightly browned and the cheese is melted. Remove from pan and enjoy!
I kept this somewhat healthy by using turkey pepperoni, using cooking spray instead of butter and not piling on the cheese (even though I totally wanted too)! Way less fat and calories than a regular old piece of pizza!
Excuse the not so great photos, I used my phone to take them! ;)
I thought they were pretty tasty and will be making them again! I like to make pizzas on tortillas and put them in the oven as well. I call them Craker Pizzas. A lot less calories without all the crust.
