  1. I've been making these for years. I just put the cheese and pepperoni on the quesadilla and use the sauce for dipping. Next time, I'll have to try putting a little sauce on the tortillas prior to putting them on the skillet.

    I stole the idea from the "pizzadillas" that TGIFridays used to have on their menu. I don't know why they took that off the menu! It was so good!
