Quesadilla Italiano

If you are at all like me you think pizza is one of the best foods around. I mean cheese, bread, sauce... what's not to like? Needless to say I love making pizza at home as much (if not more) than going out. I was craving pizza the other day but I didn't have enough bread flour to make dough, or any frozen crusts. Enter multigrain flour tortillas.

I decided to go with a pizza quesadilla instead of just sauce and cheese on top of a tortilla. Oh man... so tasty. I used Italian inspired ingredients and seasonings, resulting in an easy and delicious meal. John and I both loved this meal and I think it will be making a regular appearance in the Stephanie Cook's kitchen!
