I'm so excited to share today's recipe for two with you.  It is sinfully delicious -- and for good reason -- it's pizza in a burrito.  Need I say more?

Mini Pizza Burritos
Total Time: 30 minutes
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes

What you'll need
8 ounces ground Italian sausage (you can use lean turkey sausage if you want to cut down on fat and calories)
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 bell pepper (any color), diced
4 tortilla shells (taco size)
4 tablespoons pizza sauce 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. In a medium skillet, sauté sausage over medium heat until it is cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes.
*Note -- since I'm going to be using 1/2 pound of Italian sausage tomorrow night as well, I sautéed a pound of sausage to help cut down on prep work tomorrow.  I'll store the leftover 1/2 pound of cooked sausage in the refrigerator, and add it to tomorrow's dinner when it is needed.

3. Spread about 1 tablespoon of pizza sauce over each tortilla shell.
4. Top tortillas with sausage, onion, bell pepper and about 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese.
5. Fold up tortilla to form a burrito. 
6. Place the burritos on a baking sheet covered in foil.
7. Bake for 15 minutes or until shells are lightly toasted and the sauce is bubbling. 
8. Serve and enjoy!

Great idea when you are crunched for time and cannot make pizza crust. Besides, it is all about the toppings anyway. Love this handheld version of pizza! It also eliminates being filled up on all that bread so quickly. Well done.

Thanks Tina! I couldn't agree more!
