Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • cooking spray
  • 4 (8-inch) whole wheat tortillas (I like the whole wheat flour tortillas at Trader Joes)
  • 1½ cups (6 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Optional toppings: ½ cup chopped baby spinach, nitrate-free ham, and/or turkey pepperoni, finely chopped basil
  • 1 cup marinara sauce (I like Newman's Own Marinara)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Spray a jelly-roll pan with cooking spray. Then lay out the tortillas in a single layer.
  3. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons cheese over each tortilla and divide additional toppings over tortillas. Top each with 3 tablespoons of more cheese.
  4. Bake at 400° for 5 minutes. Remove from oven, and carefully fold each tortilla in half. Bake an additional 8-10 minutes or until browned and crisp, turning after 4-5 minutes.
  5. Serve with warm marinara for dipping.
