What is a pizzadilla? The idea came from, what we all know is as a quesadilla ( kāsəˈdēyə ). The word quesadilla derives from the words queso (cheese) and tortilla. A flour torilla can be filled with any type of cheese, meat and/or veggies. It is then heated in a pan and then folded.
Now, lets talk about my Pizzadilla. Who doesn’t LOVE pizza? I also love the taste and texture of a panini pressed sandwich or crust. I knew that in order to put my pizza in a press it had to have two crusts on both side, just like a quesadilla. I cut the pizza in half, added my meat and veggies then placed the second half on top….then pressed away. The texture and taste was amazing! The possibilities are endless. You can fill these frozen pizzas with just about any ingredients you want. Since this idea, I have made three different varieties.
What are some ideas you can come up with?
