Finger food for Teens and get togethers.
Ingredients
  • 1 package mini tortillas (usually 6 per package)
  • 1 jar of pizza sauce
  • 1 (8 ounce) bag of shredded mozzarella cheeze
  • pepperoni
  • garlic powder (optional)
  • grated parmesan cheese (optinal)
  • toothpicks
Instructions
  1. Lay the tortillas on a flat surface and spread each with 1 tablespoon of pizza sauce, up to ½-inch away from the edge.
  2. Reserve any remaining sauce and place in a dipping bowl.
  3. Spread cheese and pepperoni down the center and sprinkle with garlic if desired
  4. Then roll each one up and stab a toothpick through it to hold together
  5. Rub a little oil on each one for better browning.
  6. Place on a sheet pan lined with foil and bake at 450 for about 7 minutes or until golden brown and the cheese is melted
  7. After removing from oven may sprinkle with parmesan cheese
  8. Cut in half
  9. Serve with the remaining pizza sauce as a dip
Notes
I have seen packages with 24 mini tortillas. The recipe is easy to double. The best part about these is that you can make them the day before (without baking) and refrigerate. Then all you have to do is bake them before the party. May replace the mozzarella cheese with a package of 4-cheese pizza cheese
