pepperoni pizza quesadilla, a braces-friendly snack


  • 1 Light Italian Herb flatbread
  • 2 tablespoons of your favorite pizza sauce
  • 1/3 cup shredded, reduced-fat Italian cheese blend
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried basil
  • 5 slices turkey pepperoni
  • additional pizza sauce, if desired, for dipping


  1. Lay flatbread on work surface and spread pizza sauce evenly over entire flatbread.
  2. On one half of flatbread, sprinkle about 2 tablespoons cheese and basil. Lay pepperoni slices evenly on top, and then sprinkle the remaining cheese evenly on top of the pepperoni.
  3. Fold quesadilla in half, bringing the sauce-only half of the flatbread on top of the side with toppings.
  4. Preheat a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook quesadilla, covered, for about 3 minutes on the first side, just until toasty golden-brown.
  5. Flip quesadilla over and continue cooking on the second side, covered, for about an additional minute, until cheese is melty and the second side of the flatbread is a light, toasty golden-brown.
  6. Remove from heat, cut into wedges, and serve with additional pizza sauce for dipping, if desired.
