Sometimes I feel like I make the same kid food over and over again.  Macaroni and cheese.  Spaghetti.  Peanut butter and jelly.  Pizza.  Quesadillas.


So...out of pure boredom this wonderful concoction was born...the Pizzadilla.  

My oldest son told me that it was his new favorite the first time he ate it.  Victory.  Victory and one more thing to put in the old kid food arsenal...

The recipe below will make one Pizzadilla.  I made two for my three children to share.  The recipe will easily double, or quadruple, or whatever you need.  If you are making one for yourself throw in some of your favorite toppings, just make sure to have the filling thin enough to let the cheese work to seal in all the goodness.  


2 6-inch flour tortillas
3 Tablespoons of spaghetti sauce, store bought or homemade
1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
6 pieces of pepperoni

Heat the griddle over medium-high heat.  (You can also use a frying pan if you do not have a griddle pan).

Spread 1 1/2 Tablespoons of sauce on each tortilla.  Sprinkle one of the tortillas with cheese and then arrange the pepperoni on top.  Put the other tortilla on top of the first, sauce side down, and transfer to the griddle.  Cook on the first side until the cheese begins to melt, flip, and cook on the other side until the tortilla is lightly browned and the cheese inside is fully melted.

Cut into fourths and serve.
