Baked Pizza Taquitos

These super easy pizza taquitos make for a great weeknight dinner that the whole family will love!

Baked Pizza Taquitos

I’m so excited that I get to share some of the easy weeknight dinners that keep my boys satisfied and me sane during the craziness of the week! With three very busy growing boys, if I don’t have dinner ready when they’re ready to eat, then they’re literally digging in the pantry and climbing on the outside of the fridge. So I have to think ahead and have easy meals ready to go when they’re ready to eat!

These pizza taquitos are a shoe in during the week! The boys literally devour them. Classic pepperoni pizza toppings rolled in a multi-grain flour tortilla and then baked to crispy melty yumminess! What’s not to love?!

They’re so easy to bake and as easy and delicious as pizza is to eat! We love dipping them in pizza sauce or ranch dressing and serving them alongside a big salad or cut-up veggies for a winner of a dinner!

It doesn’t get much easier than these, my friends! Just spread a tortilla with some pizza sauce, sprinkle it with some cheese and add a little pepperoni before rolling it up tightly and baking for just 15 minutes. They’re so easy to make that I usually let the boys help me to keep them busy so they’re not begging for dinner while I’m trying to get it on the table!

We bake these all the time for dinner and the boys love it when I put them in their school lunches! They’re a family fave that I actually crave and that the boys beg for! Add them to your weeknight menu and your family will be thanking you and begging for more, just like mine!

      Hi Melissa! It’s definitely worth a try. I can’t imagine they would get too soggy since you just put a little sauce on there. And if you keep them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to bake them, that will help prevent everything from getting soggy. Let me know if you give it a try! Enjoy!

    Made this last night.
    My husband loved these. It’s a very quick alternative for pizza. Another weeknight hit!

    Thanks for sharing

    I haven’t made these yet. but for Melissa, if you want to make ahead. try using slice of mozzarella, or putting the cheese on first, then only use a very small amount of the sauce, or sip the sauce altogether they will be dipping in sauce anyway. just ideas. hope it works out. I love making things ahead. Much easier.
