Pizza Quesadillas Recipe

Publisher Photo
When my husband and I needed a quick meal, I fixed this recipe using leftover ingredients. Unlike traditional Mexican quesadillas, it calls for Italian meats, cheeses and seasoning. Serve it with a green salad topped with Italian dressing for a simple dinner for two. —Barbara B. Rupert, Edgefield, South Carolina

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 10, 2014

Paired this with a garden salad and it made a super quick weeknight dinner. Used sandwich pepperoni. Definitely will do again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 1, 2013

This is an excellent idea to have the pizza taste but without all the crust. I don't care for salami so I omitted it and added some fresh garden vegetables (green peppers and onions). I also used a four cheese pizza blend in place of only mozzarella. It's nice because it is quick and you can use toppings/fillings to suit the individual tastes of your family.
