I was trying to come up with creative ways to use up the rest of my roasted tomato sauce without having to go to a ton of effort, then I spotted the Rudi’s gluten-free tortillas in my fridge and had a minor epiphany – why not make a cheese pizza quesadilla?
I love cheese quesadillas, and practically lived off them in college along with all that Easy Mac. 1 minute of prep, a few minutes in a hot skillet, big glob of salsa and it’s a pretty complete and simple meal. Pizza has always been a favorite too, so why have I not combined the two before?
I’ve heard of tortilla pizzas, but thought they looked a little difficult to pick up and eat since tortillas are so thin. Not so with quesadillas! The second tortilla makes them the perfect finger food.
It was absolutely delicious – all the flavors of a gooey, cheesy thin-crust pizza done in just a few minutes in a skillet. You could easily add your favorite pizza toppings as long as you slice them thinly. I have plans to try a Hawaiian or BBQ pizza version next…
Cheese Pizza Quesadillas
- 2 Rudi’s gluten-free flour tortillas
- 2-3 tbsp tomato sauce
- 2 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray.
Lay a tortilla out on the cutting board and top it with the sauce and cheese like a pizza. Add a second tortilla on top and add to the hot skillet. Flip after about 3-4 minutes, or once the bottom tortilla is golden, and cook the other side for the same amount of time.
Slice into wedges and serve immediately.
