More About This Recipe

  • Is pizzadilla a made-up word? Yep, and it perfectly describes this hybrid pizza-quesadilla. This may be one of the best Buffalo chicken recipes yet. It’s a quesadilla, it’s a pizza and it's stuffed to the brim with spicy Buffalo chicken, cheddar cheese, plus a little blue cheese – and then it sports pepperoni on top. Honestly though, these quesadillas are like the best of three worlds, or in this case, three foods. They're the very best combo of your favorite Buffalo chicken, put together with the much-loved crispiness of fried tortillas, along with your favorite pizza toppings – and, best of all, they're cheesy cheesy cheesy! Also, did I mention how easy they are? You only need a handful of ingredients that you probably have on hand. Gotta love easy meals like this. Plus, you can top with your favorite pizza toppings. I used pepperoni, but broccoli, red peppers, mushrooms or any favorite toppings would be delicious on here as well. In fact, you could even add the toppings right into the quesadillas if you want. This is your deal – do it your way! Bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Then slice it up and get it while it's hot!
