The other day, I was in the mood for pizza but I didn’t have any pizza crust. I could have whipped up my easy 2 ingredient pizza crust, but I had a bag of tortillas I needed to use. So I decided to make a pizza-inspired quesadilla! Putting the classic flavors of a veggie pizza inside quesadilla turned out to be a pretty delicious meal. It’s a perfect meal for those evenings when you need something satisfying but simple to prepare.

Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Pizza Sauce– I used Rao’s tomato basil pasta sauce because I love the flavor, but any pizza sauce or marinara sauce is fine.
  • Mozzarella– Shredded mozzarella melts beautifully for that perfect cheese pull.
  • Green bell pepper– This adds a slightly sweet flavor. Feel free to substitute for any color bell pepper.
  • Baby Bella Mushrooms– Sautéed mushrooms offer an umami, meaty flavor in this vegetarian quesadilla.
  • Red onion– Red onion adds a slight sharpness. You could substitute with shallots for a milder flavor.
  • Spinach– Baby spinach is an easy way to add some greens to this meal. You could use kale instead of spinach, just be sure to remove the stems.
  • Tortillas– I used large 10″ flour tortillas, but you can use any kind you like. I recommend using whole wheat tortillas for additional fiber and protein.
