  • 8 oz. ground Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled
  • 8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 8-inch flour tortillas
  • 8 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup jarred marinara sauce

Cook Italian sausage in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat until no longer pink, about 5-7 minutes. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to drain.
Wipe out the skillet. Reduce heat to medium and add 1 tablespoon butter, sliced mushrooms, and salt. Cook and stir until the mushrooms are tender and no liquid remains, about 5 minutes. Place mushrooms and sausage in a bowl and stir to combine.
Spray each tortilla with cooking spray on one side. Flip the tortilla over and one one half layer about 2 tablespoons of cheese, 1/4 cup of the sausage mixture, and another 2 tablespoons of cheese. Fold the tortilla in half over the mixture.
Place two pizza-dillas in the pan and cook on each side for 1-2 minutes or until nicely browned. Repeat with remaining pizza-dillas.
Using a pizza cutter, cut each piece into thirds. Serve with warmed marina sauce (garnished with Parmesan cheese, it desired).

    I'm confused. You said to spray one side of the tortilla with the spray and flip over. Then put the filling in. After said and done, put filled tortilla in pan and cook. Did you mean to say that or am I missing something?

      I do this to. Spray one side then place stuffings on the unsprayed side then fold and cook.
