In this instructable, I will show you how to make a pizza quesadilla. I love quesadillas, I normally make them 2 or 3 times a week, but usually just do it super simple with the flour tortilla and cheese, but thought I would change it up a bit and do a pizza one. Homemade pizza quesadillas are super easy to make with very few ingredients, and not baking required, if I can make them, you can make them, let's get started!

Don't forget to follow me and check out my other instructables. :)

If you have any questions or comments leave them down below and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Follow the easy steps or watch the short video tutorial or do both! :)

Step 1: Ingredients/Tools


  • Flour tortillas
  • marinara sauce (or favorite pizza sauce)
  • mozzarella cheese
  • pepperoni
  • olives
  • (your favorite pizza toppings)


  • spatula
  • skillet
  • pizza cutter
  • cutting board
  • spoon

Step 2: Heat, Spread, Toppings

First let's turn the heat on the stovetop to medium heat. Then place our tortilla in the skillet. Next had a thin layer of marinara sauce or your favorite pizza sauce. Then add cheese and other toppings. I always top the toppings off with more cheese too. :)

Step 3: Fold, Cook, Serve

Now we fold it over. Use your hands or a spatula to fold it over. It will be hot! :) Then cook it for a few minutes until each side gets golden brown. That provides a nice little crunch to it. :) Then place it on a cutting board and cut it into wedges with a knife or pizza cutter. Or you can eat it as is if you like. So simple and easy, kids love these things!!

Step 4: Video Tutorial

Now what those steps in action my watching my video tutorial. :)

    Sure! I don't see why not. :) I haven't tried it, but I am betting they would freeze nicely. :)

    I have done this many times. I don't fold mine though, I just lay the first tortilla down and add the ingredients then place another tortilla on top. I use salsa instead of pizza sauce and mostly ingredients like cilantro, peppers, jalapenos and sometimes leftover taco meat or refried beans. Of course the traditional pizza topping work well too. I then either bake or microwave them. I usually add more salsa and cheese to the top as well. They are delicious. We call our version "Mexican Pizza" as does a well known fast food restaurant no matter what toppings we use. Thanks for the Instructable!

    That is awesome! Yeah if I wanted to make it bigger I would do the two layers as well. They are so versatile, with the toppings. :)

    Tasty! I made these once too but I used the sauce for dipping instead of putting it on. I love sauce :)
