Pizzaladas: Pizza Enchiladas

Pizza Enchiladas

I’m typing this out with one hand – the other is holding little Gideon close against my chest. He doesn’t want to be put down, and I really don’t want to put him down anyway. After not being able to hold him very much for his first few days of life, I’m prone to extra cuddle time with baby number seven. I find it ironic that it’s taking me longer to type this than it takes to actually make this yummy weeknight dinner.

We first came across Pizza Enchiladas in The Bizy Mommy’s $5 Cookbook. It’s a super simple recipe that’s easy to customize for your family. We like to add ground italian sausage and occasionally some bacon for a “meat lovers” variation. I love green bell peppers, onions, and black olives – but my kids act like I’m trying to kill them if they taste a hint of veggies so I just load up a few at the end for myself.  We gotta pick our battles around here.

Ingredients:

  • 10-12 large burrito-size tortillas
  • 1 14-ounce jar pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 7-ounce package sliced pepperoni (you’ll need about half the package)
  • Extras: 1 pound ground sausage – browned, cooked and crumbled bacon, mushrooms, bell pepper, onions, whatever floats your boat!

Preheat oven to 400.  Spread about 1/4 cup of sauce in the bottom of a large baking pan to keep enchiladas from sticking.

Take a large tortilla and spread on about a table spoon of sauce.

Chop about 1/3 cup sliced pepperoni and sprinkle over the top. We like to add any remaining ground sausage or other toppings too. Then top with remaining shredded cheese. Bake at 400 for about 20 minutes – just long enough to get everything all warm and melty.
