Sometimes you just need something really fast and easy for dinner that everyone will enjoy, and these Pizza Quesadillas (also called Pizzadillas) are just that! They’re perfect for adding veggies from the fridge that need to be used, and it’s a fun way to mix up your meal routine.

How to Make a Pizza Quesadilla:

Spread the sauce: spread a thin layer of pizza sauce over each tortilla.

Add toppings: On one half of each tortilla, sprinkle a little bit of Italian seasoning, cheese, and other desired toppings.

Fold and cook: Fold the tortilla in half and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. Dip in extra marinara sauce or ranch, if desired.

Pro Tips:

The cheese matters! More specifically, shredding your own cheese matters. The powder you notice covering pre-shredded cheese is meant to help prevent it from clumping together, however, it also prevents it from melting very well. Your cheese will melt easier and taste yummier if you buy a block and shred it yourself.

Tortillas: Feel free to use regular store-bought flour tortillas, but in my opinion uncooked flour tortillas will take your pizza quesadilla to the next level. You can usually find them pre-made in the refrigerator section, near shredded cheese. Here’s an amazon link.

Toppings: Make a plain cheese pizza quesadilla or add any of your favorite toppings, like pepperoni, mushrooms, olives, chopped bell peppers, etc.

Freezing Instructions:

Freeze leftover quesadillas by first laying them in an even layer on a sheet pan to “flash freeze.” Cover the sheet pan loosely with plastic wrap and freeze for 1 hour. Then place them in an air tight, freezer safe container, for up to 2 months. Reheat in the oven at 350F for 10-15 minutes.
