    Veggie-licious Pizza Quesadillas
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) olive or vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) pizza sauce
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) chopped vegetables of choice
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 6 inch (18 cm) whole wheat tortillas


Brush olive oil over one side of each tortilla and lay, oil side down, on clean work surface. Divide pizza sauce between two of the tortillas and spread evenly.

Sprinkle each with equal amounts of cheese and veggies and top with remaining tortillas, oil side up.

In a nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook stacked tortillas, one at a time, until bottoms are brown.

With a spatula, turn over and cook until golden and cheese is melted. Remove from pan and cut into wedges.
