Do you ever have one of those days where you just can’t? This Pizzadilla recipe is for you. You know, for the days when you’re knee deep in laundry, the kids have lined up every matchbox car throughout the entire house and the school drop off monitor gave you the eye because your car was only halfway in the yellow area when you let the kids out of the car. At least you are wearing your nice pajamas today.
Don’t worry! I’ve got you! The Pizzadilla is the easiest lunch and get this, my kids request it! Crowd pleaser, mom pleaser, it’s a win-win. And I’m not even sure it needs to be called a recipe, it is literally that simple. Really, most kids can probably do it themselves or at least help with the process.Print Recipe
Pizzadilla: 3 minute lunch
Combine two kid favorites: pizza and quesadillas
- 1/4 Cup Shredded Cheddar
- 1/4 Cup Shredded Mozzarella
- 6 Pepperoni Slices
- 2 Soft Taco sized Flour Tortillas
- Marinara Sauce for dipping (optional)
Lay down one tortilla.
Spread cheddar evenly over tortilla.
Place pepperoni slices evenly over cheddar.
Spread mozzarella evenly over pepperoni.
Place second tortilla on top.
For crispy tortilla, warm each side for 1-2 minutes in a heated frying pan sprayed with cooking oil.
Speed method: Microwave on a plate for 30 seconds each side.
Remember, if you dip them in Marinara you have your vegetable side. lol That’s a lot of food groups packed in one little triangle. Admittedly, I usually serve them with baby carrots or apple slices on the side since I can get those on the plate while the Pizzadilla is cooking.
On Weekends, I like to have my older kids help with meals so they can learn to prep easy items. You know, so they don’t go off to college not knowing how to boil water or use a microwave (true story of my sister’s roommate). A Pizzadilla is a lunch that I can easily have them whip up for their younger siblings while I run to the store or hide in the pantry and eat chocolate. Truly, I don’t mind eating them on occasion when we are in a hurry.
Try out a Pizzadilla and let me know what you think! What other combos can you think of to melt between two tortillas? How about bacon, havarti, and spinach for an adult version?!
