Pizza Quesadilla

Pizza Quesadilla


  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup pepperoni slices
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • Marinara sauce, for dipping


  1. Prepare the Pizza Filling:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine shredded mozzarella cheese and pepperoni slices. Toss them together to evenly distribute the pepperoni throughout the cheese.
  2. Prepare the Tortillas:
    • Lay out the 4 large flour tortillas on a clean surface.
    • Sprinkle the cheese and pepperoni mixture evenly over two of the tortillas.
    • Place the remaining two tortillas on top, creating two quesadilla sandwiches.
  3. Season and Butter the Quesadillas:
    • In a small bowl, mix together garlic powder and dried basil leaves.
    • Melt the unsalted butter in a skillet over medium heat.
    • Sprinkle the garlic and basil seasoning mix over the melted butter.
  4. Cook the Quesadillas:
    • Carefully place one quesadilla in the skillet and cook until the bottom tortilla becomes golden and crispy, and the cheese begins to melt. This usually takes about 2-3 minutes per side.
  5. Flip and Cook:
    • Carefully flip the quesadilla to the other side and cook until the second side is golden brown and the cheese is completely melted.
  6. Serve:
    • Remove the quesadilla from the skillet and let it cool for a minute or two.
    • Use a sharp knife to cut the quesadilla into wedges or squares, as desired.
    • Serve the pizza quesadilla hot, with marinara sauce on the side for dipping.
