Pizzadilla (Grilled Pizza Sandwich)

Pizzadilla (Grilled Pizza Sandwich) I was watching TV the other day, and I saw a commercial for something called a Papadilla. What follows is my attempt to make one of these things. What this relatively fast and easy procedure allows you to do is make a single portion of what’s very, very close to pizza in a pan on top of the stove in just a few minutes, without ever having to turn on the oven. Serve your pizzadilla with a side salad topped with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

  • Heat a pan over medium-high heat and brush with oil. Add 1 piece of dough and reduce heat to medium. Cook for 2 minutes and flip. Spread 1/4 of the sauce over the dough. Sprinkle 1/4 of the mozzarella cheese and some sausage, mushrooms, and red onion on top, leaving about 1/2 inch of dough around the outside. Press gently into the middle of the dough with a spatula to make a crease; fold in half.

  • Brush crust with a little more olive oil and flip over. Repeat on the other side and continue cooking until both sides of the pizzadilla are as browned and crisp as you like.

  • Repeat with remaining pizza dough and toppings. Cut each pizzadilla in half and serve.
