Pizza Quesadillas

This was sort of a desperation recipe I came up with the other night when I wanted pizza but I wanted it to be healthy-ish. It turned out good, sort of like the ultimate thin crust pizza.

For each pizza (2 per person is good):


-- 1 whole-wheat tortilla (I usually buy the healthiest I can stand to eat, either whole wheat with flax, or lately I have been trying to eat those Ezekiel sprouted tortillas, they fall apart and have a stronger taste, but they are SO HEALTHY compared to regular tortillas)
-- tomato sauce or pizza sauce from a can (I used tomato sauce and sprinkled on oregano)
-- mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
-- 3 mushrooms, thinly sliced
-- 1/4 green pepper, thinly sliced
-- 1 tablespoon thinly sliced onion
-- olive oil, salt, pepper


-- Turn the broiler on the oven
-- Put a large frying pan on the stove, with the heat on medium, toast the tortilla on both sides until it is crisp.
-- Put the tortilla on a baking sheet, spread with sauce right to the edge -- any exposed tortilla tends to burn
-- Dot the tortilla with mozzarella, sprinkle on veggies
-- Salt and pepper the whole pizza, sprinkle on any other herbs you like, and for that final pizzeria touch finish with a small swirl of olive oil.
-- Put under the broiler, but watch it because it will burn easily. When the cheese is melted and just starting to brown, take out, cut into wedges, and EAT
