Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp pizza sauce store bought
  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 4 pepperoni sticks sliced thinly
  • 1/2 green bell pepper chopped
  • 12 baby bocconcini balls cut in slices
  • 3 leaves basil chopped
  • extra pizza sauce for dipping

Instructions

  • Preheat your panini maker and spray it with some cooking oil. If using a skillet, spray with cooking oil and heat it.
  • Spread 1 tbsp of pizza sauce over half a tortilla. Sprinkle about 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese over the sauce. Top with 1/4 of the pepperoni slices and 1/4 of the chopped green peppers. Top with 1/4 of the bocconcini, I used about 3 sliced baby bocconcini per pizzadilla. Flip over the other half of the tortilla to form half a circle and press down.
  • You can use a panini press to grill the quesadilla, otherwise place the quesadilla in the prepared skillet and grill it on both sides until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • Repeat with remaining tortillas and ingredients.
  • Cut each pizzadilla in half and garnish with chopped basil. Serve with pizza sauce for dipping.
