Pizzadillas

I made these yesterday for a wedding shower and they were a big hit. I’ve made them before for other parties and everyone loves them and they can’t believe the cheese isn’t dairy! First start off with the marinara sauce:

Marinara Sauce [Candle Cafe Cookbook]
• ¼ c olive oil {I used 1/8 c oil + 1/8 c water}
• 4 garlic cloves, minced
• 1 onion, coarsely chopped
• 32-oz can organic tomatoes or 6 large red tomatoes, chopped
• ¼ c chopped fresh basil
• ½ tsp dried oregano
• 2 tsp dried rosemary, crumbled
• sea salt and pepper
In large sauté pan or skillet heat oil over med-high heat and sauté garlic and onion until caramelized, about 5 min. Add tomatoes, basil, oregano, rosemary, cook over med-low for 5 min, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat & cool. Add salt/pepper to taste. Transfer to a blender and blend until smooth.

Pizzadillas  [Candle Cafe Cookbook] – makes 6-8
• 4 garlic cloves peeled {I recommend using more}
• 1 TBS olive oil {I used coconut oil}
• 1 cup or so of the Marinara Sauce recipe, above
• 2  12” flour tortillas {I made them gluten free so I used a rice tortilla which was really good!}
• 1 cup Daiya mozzarella-style shredded cheese {this brand is the best of the non-dairy cheeses}
• ½ c finely chopped fresh basil
• 1 package sun-dried tomatoes Julienne sliced, soaked in hot water 10 min, drained
• celtic or sea salt
• ½ tsp dried oregano
Pre-heat oven 350. Put garlic cloves in baking pan and drizzle with oil. Bake until softened, about 10 min, then cut into thin slices. Spread layer of sauce on each tortilla, top with cheese, basil, roasted garlic, sun-dried tomatoes. Sprinkle w/salt and oregano. Fold each tortilla in half and bake 10 min or until warmed through. Cut into thirds or fourths and serve immediately. I had to make them the night before and then re-heat the next day, and they were still tasty and hadn’t gone soggy!
