Quick & Easy Pizza Quesadillas | THM: S, Low-Carb

Ooooh boy. I can’t even think of the right words to describe how amazing these Pizza Quesadillas are. They are as tasty as they are easy! 

I don’t often use low-carb wraps (Mission wraps are my favorite!) because I can’t find them locally here, but when I do indulge in this “personal choice Frankenfood,” (meaning, it has some off-plan ingredients, but still fits within the carb limit for a THM S meal), this is most definitely one of my favorite ways to enjoy them! 

With just 6 net carbs per wrap, you can enjoy 2 Pizza Quesadillas in a serving!

 

This Pizza Quesadilla recipe yields 8 quesadillas, or 4 servings of 2 quesadillas each.

My hubby loves these things too, as do our kids. And who wouldn’t? 

Each quesadilla is stuffed with a meat lover’s combo of mozzarella, cheddar, pepperoni, ham, and bacon crumbles.

Before baking, the tops are brushed with a mixture of melted butter, garlic powder, oregano, parsley, and Parmesan cheese. In addition to giving the tops of these Pizza Quesadillas a garlic bread flavor, the melted butter also makes the wrap flake up into a sort of crispy pastry. 

Paired with a sugar-free Marinara (Costco has a great one!) or pizza sauce for dipping, these Pizza Quesadillas make a quick appetizer, snack, lunch, or dinner that appeals to both adults and kids alike. 

They can be baked ahead of time and reheated in the toaster or microwave.

To increase the health factor of these pizza quesadillas, feel free to add whatever veggies you like to this meat lover-based filling. Green peppers, red onion, mushrooms…they’d all be great additions!

Just stay away from adding pineapple to these because:

  1. Pineapple does not belong on pizza (*runs and hides*)
  2. Pineapple is an E fruit and would turn these pizza quesadillas into Crossovers

Enjoy!

Quick & Easy Steak And Cheese Quesadillas (S)

Quick Steak & Cheese Quesadillas | THM: S

My husband met his favorite THM-friendly meal when I served him these Quick Steak & Cheese Quesadillas last week.

Wow. These are incredible. Amazing. I don’t even know what other words to use. They are….just….wow.

“Can I quote you on the blog.”

Yup.

Ridiculously easy and made with no special ingredients, these Quick Steak & Cheese Quesadillas are the perfect meal for a busy week night. What could be better than a butter-fried low-carb wrap stuffed with thinly sliced roast beef (or use leftover cooked steak strips, if you have that on hand), provolone cheese, and sauted mixture of green peppers, onions, and mushrooms dipped into a perfectly tempered sauce made from Greek yogurt, mayo, and horseradish?!

According to my hubby, not much.

To keep this meal an S fuel, limit yourself to two quesadillas (which I found plenty filling!), or the equivalent of one low-carb wrap. More than that will put you into S helper or Crossover mode – great fuels for men, growing children,  pregnant or nursing mothers, diabetics, and those who are already at goal weight.
