Quesadilla Pizza | Mexican Pizza

Friends this time I want to try some thing special for this weekend. Weekend really a leisure time for all of Us. Is not it.? In my case I am really exhausted after a weekdays... so feeling no cooking at all. So prefer to eat outside. Eating out with some special dishes or new dishes. For restaurant eating I mostly prefer North Indian, South Indian, Mughlai treat and Italian or Mexican or Chinese Foods. In some Mexican Foods I tried Quesadillas Pizza or Mexican Pizza. It is really a tasty one... So as I got interested with this recipe so one of my favorite TV show I got this recipe. And for this result today I am going to share with you too. Hope you will like it.
Its easy one to try at home. Sharing one Basic quesadilla only... try first this one.

On that TV show they tried with chicken and rajma as the filling of quesadillas. But I didnot have any minced chicken or rajma. That is why I tried with only the basic vegetables. Still it was awesome. And from that Tv show I came to know that Mexicans are very familiar with  Cumin seeds/powder. It was really a surprising for me. Well, and Thank god for that it is available easily in our Indian market too. And most of our preparation we are using it also. Right! Anyway another thing for the pizza base they are saying Tortilla which is nothing but our Indian Flat bread/chapati. So why late all ingredients are ready at your pantry so try this out right now and give a surprise to your family with Mexican Pizza.

As there is one confusion arises about quesadillas tortilla so I want to point out these source too... I agree with all of them who are saying tortilla is prepared with Cornflour only. This is the authentic way.So sharing From WIKI ...

 "Most quesadillas are prepared by just folding and filling a tortilla, but other variations have tortillas specially made for filling. The type of tortilla varies by region. In most of Mexico, Central and South America, corn tortillas are traditionally preferred. In northern regions of Mexico, along the United States border and across the USA, quesadillas are most commonly prepared with flour tortillas.[5] Another variation is deep fried; its preparation resembles more of a pastry than a tortilla. Quesadillas from the San Luis Potosí region are not quesadillas in the traditional sense, but rather are enchiladas potosinas. Red or occasionally green salsa is added to the flour, which makes the tortilla red or green. In making these enchiladas, cheese is added, and the tortilla is then folded in half and fried."
"Other variations include the use of wheat flour tortillas instead, especially in northeastern Mexico. Wheat dough is most commonly used in place of corn masa. In this case, the flour tortilla is prepared, folded and filled with cheese, exactly as the corn.[9]"
In Tarla Dalal to make flour tortilla they are using Maida also...I used that one too,rather they are using more maida flour than whole wheat flour.

Thanks to all of you. Now checkout the Recipe...
