Pizza Tortilla Rolls

Whenever I buy flour tortillas for soft tacos, I always seem to have 3 or 4 left in the package.  This is a great recipe to use them up for after-school snacks or for appetizers.  This is a fun recipe that kids can help make since it only take a few minutes.  Add your favorite pizza fillings!

3/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper, mushrooms or pepperoni
1 Tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
4-6 flour tortillas
1 cup pizza sauce
2 cups shredded 4-cheese pizza cheese
Olive oil spray
2 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese

Cook onion and peppers (or mushrooms or pepperoni) in butter in a skillet until the vegetables are tender.  Stir in oregano and red pepper flakes.

Spread each tortilla with about 1 or 2 Tbsp. of the pizza sauce, spreading sauce to about 1/2 inch from edges.  Divide onion mixture among the tortillas spooning it evenly on top of the surface.

Sprinkle the pizza cheese evenly over the mixture leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edges.

Roll up tortillas from one side and place on a foil-lined baking sheet with seam side down.  Spray lightly with a cooking spray and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Bake at 400 degrees F. for about 8 minutes.  Cut in half or into four for adult appetizers.
