Pizzadilla (pizza quesadilla)

Quesadillas are my go-to "I'm hungry I need food right now" meals. They can easily be stuffed with anything I want and are ready in under 10 minutes. This version is pizza-meets-Southwest flavors. It's stuffed with cheese, pepperoni and spiced sweet corn and bell peppers. This is one hearty meal.
