Italy meets Mexico! These pizza quesadillas are ideal for a Saturday night homemade takeaway, and also make fantastic leftovers for lunch boxes.

  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • Handful of fresh basil
  • 100g grated mozzarella cheese

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C / 160°C Fan / Gas Mark 4, and line a baking tray with parchment.
  2. In a blender, add the chopped tomatoes, onion, garlic, oregano and basil and pulse until you have a smooth sauce. Leave to one side.
  3. Lay two tortillas side by side on the prepared baking tray, and spread each one with 4 tbsp of the sauce. Sprinkle with equal amounts of mozzarella and prosciutto, and then lay the remaining two tortillas on top of each prepared one.
