Ingredients

  • 2 Tortilla wraps
  • Approx 75g grated cheese
  • 1 clove of garlic, very finely chopped
  • Butter for greasing
  • Approx 100g chopped tomatoes + juice, or 5/6 tbsp pasata
  • 1tsp Oregano if using chopped tomatoes
  • Pizza toppings as you wish - my recipe below:
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 2 rashers bacon, fried and chopped
  • 1/2 yellow pepper, sliced
  • 1 handful grated cheese

Method

    1. Preheat the grill. If using chopped tomatoes, place these in a small frying pan, add the oregano and a sprinkle of black pepper and cook over a medium heat until they can be broken up into a smooth sauce. If using pasata skip to step 2.
    2. Lay one wrap on a plate, fill with grated cheese to within about 3cm of the edge, and sprinkle the garlic over the top aiming for an even distribution. Rub a small amount of butter around the part of the wrap left uncovered. Place the other wrap over the top and use your thumbs to crimp the two together, pressing hard onto the edge of the plate.
    3. Heat about 1tbsp of olive oil in a large frying pan, covering the base well, and slide the quesadilla into it. Fry for 1-2 minutes, checking after 1 minute that it isn't burning. When the underside appears golden brown, place a plate upside down over the frying pan and quickly flip the pan over so the quesadilla turns out onto the plate. Add more oil to the pan, heat for a few seconds, then slide the quesadilla back in to cook the other side.
    4. When both sides are golden brown, remove using the same plate method and spoon the tomato sauce or pasata over the quesadilla to evenly cover it. Arrange your chosen toppings on the top, cover with cheese and grill until the cheese is melted. Check to make sure the edges of the quesadilla aren't burning, if they are try moving it to a lower oven shelf.
    5. Serve hot.

I've often thought that quesadillas look a bit scrawny once the cheese has all melted down - it seemed to me like they were crying out for something to be put on top to make them look more interesting and flesh them out a bit... This was the result. Once the cheese has melted I guess it's comparable to a stuffed crust pizza - it's not a major part of the dish but it's a welcome addition. Also, using wraps rather than making pizza dough makes it a lot faster to prepare and light enough to eat a whole one for lunch! (If you're greedy like me anyway...)
