As students have settled down into their dorms and apartments to take on the semester, many find that dorm food is boring, cooking takes forever, and the cafeteria on campus offers great options, but sometimes seems so far away. For those who choose to stay in and want something simple, delicious, and quick to make to spice up your food life, here is a quick and easy recipe to make your very own Margherita Pizza Quesadilla.

The recipe calls for four items that are simple and take 5 Minutes to make. Ingredients include Flour Tortillas, Basil (chopped or leaf), Tomatoes (Sliced or Diced), and Mozzarella cheese (Cut or Ball).

Serving size:
1X: 1 tortilla,
1 tomato (Sliced)
3 oz mozzarella (Sliced)
4 large Basil leaves (Whole
or chopped)
Cook Time: 5 Minutes

Directions: Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Place the tortilla on the skillet, then layer the tomato, mozzarella, and basil leaves on half of the tortilla to your liking. Cook it for a minute before flipping the empty side over and flipping the now folded tortilla. Cook for another two minutes, allowing the cheese to melt, and allowing the tortilla sides to turn golden brown. Once that is done, slice it and enjoy!

Now the recipe is simple enough, and delicious as is. If you really want to make it something special, go ahead and add some dashes of Balsamic Vinegar to your liking. It really brings the freshness of the margarita pizza flavor out and gives the soul just what it was looking for! As a student who has lived both on campus in a dorm and off campus in an apartment, this recipe is quick, delicious, and very simple.
