My kids LOVE these snacks! They're super easy, tasty and not loaded in fat like some other foods! My teenager makes these without any help from Mom which is great! It can easily be converted to vegetarian by omitting the pepperoni and adding a few veggies. Thats how my husband likes his. It's like a pizza flavored quesadilla with a marinara dipping sauce-- YUM!
