  • Thursday: This week, grab some friends or family members and commit to making this seemingly impossible recipe together. And hey, if you make it through, you get some delicious Hot Dog Pizza-dillas to eat! Ingredients: 4 beef or pork hot dogs, 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO), 4 10- to 12-inch flour tortillas, 1/4cup mild chunky salsa (4 big spoonfuls), 8 squirts of ketchup (about 1/4 cup), 1 cup shredded mozzarella or provolone cheese, 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese. How To: Cut the hot dogs in half lengthwise, then into 1/2-inch pieces. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil to the pan. Add the dogs and cook until browned all over—2 to 4 minutes. Drain the crispy dog slices on paper towel lined plates and pour off the excess fat. The sliced hot dogs are your pepperoni. Add a drizzle more of olive oil to the pan, then add 1 tortilla. Cook for 1 minute, then flip it over with tongs and turn the heat to low. Place a big spoonful of the salsa on half of the tortilla, then spread it around with the back of the spoon. Add 2 squirts of ketchup and mix it into the salsa. This is your pizza sauce. Top the sauce with one-fourth of the cheese-a big handful of each kind. Top the cheese with one-fourth of the crispy hot dog pieces. Fold over the tortilla to form a half-moon shape. Press down on the folded tortilla with a spatula to flatten the pizza-dilla and make it stick together. Cook the pizza-dilla, flipping it carefully once more with a spatula, for 1 minute per side. Slide the pizza-dilla onto a plate and let it cool for 2 minutes, then cut into 4 wedges, like a pizza, and serve. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Eat plain or top with more ketchup, salsa or even mustard and relish-whatever you like on hot dogs works here! (Recipe from:https://www.rachaelraymag.com/Recipes/rachael-ray-magazine-recipe-search/kid-recipes/hot-dog-pizza-dillas)
