Turn Your Quesadilla Into A Pizzadilla

Italy meets Mexico in this hit mid-week treat that combines cheese-topped tortillas and ingredients you wouldn’t usually find inside a quesadilla.

This is a perfect dish to serve at a party since the whole recipe makes 4 quesadillas that can each be sliced into as many as 8 pieces.


  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 medium flour tortillas
  • 1/2 c. pizza sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 c. shredded mozzarella
  • 1 c. freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 c. sliced salami
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • Fresh chopped parsley, for garnish


  1. Heat broiler. In a large oven-safe skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add one tortilla to skillet and spread about half of pizza sauce on top. Scatter garlic on top and sprinkle with half of mozzarella, Parmesan, pepperoni, and Italian seasoning.
  2. Top with second tortilla and cook until cheese is melty and tortilla is golden. 
  3. When ready to flip, cover skillet with a large plate and invert skillet to transfer quesadilla onto plate, then slide quesadilla back into skillet, cooked-side up. Top with remaining pizza sauce, mozzarella, Parmesan, pepperoni, and Italian seasoning.
  4. Place skillet under broiler and broil until cheese is melty and pepperoni is crispy about 2 minutes.
  5. Garnish with parsley before serving.
