  • Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Spread margarine over one side of a tortilla, and place it margarine-side down in the skillet. Spoon a tablespoon of pizza sauce onto half of the tortilla. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of shredded cheese over the sauce, and top with a few slices of pepperoni.

Let me just say that these are a great idea. I was hesitant to make them for a party because I am known as the Martha Stewart of my group of friends and I usually spend lots of time and effort on everything I make. I didn't want to ruin my reputation by making something easy but I was running out of time! For this recipe I used two 10" tortillas for each quesadilla-- one on the bottom and one on top. When they were done I cut them with a pizza cutter for cute pizza-slice-shaped appetizers. For the sauce in the quesadillas I used my favorite pizza sauce recipe: 3 (8 oz) cans of tomato sauce 1 (6 oz) can of tomato paste 1 tablespoon dried oregano 1 1/2 teaspoons dried marjoram 1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil 1 teaspoon garlic salt and 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon white sugar. (Combine all in saucepan bring to a simmer to combine flavors and adjust seasonings to taste. Use leftovers dipping sauce for the quesadillas!) I used mozzerella cheese pepperoni sun-dried tomatoes and sliced italian sausage links inside and they were sooooooooo good. One thing to note-- these hold together really well if you put cheese down as the first layer (after sauce) and again as the last layer after the other ingredients. Everyone thought these were great. I called them PIZZADILLAS. Yum yum! Read More

These are so good! We have them almost every week now.:-) I did make a couple of changes. We used cheddar and mozzerella cheese and we added olives and sauteed mushrooms with the pepperoni for "toppings" Also so we don't burn them we cook on the stove until the tortilla is golden and then put the on a cookie sheet in a heated oven. That way the cheese melts and they stay warm while the others are be cooked. Thanks for the recipe!! Read More

Awesome little snack! So simple and especially good when you're craving pizza. I used "Pasta/Pizza Sauce" from this site and opted to cook these in the oven @ 375 for about 15 minutes on a foil lined baking sheet. I sprayed a little Pam so nothing would stick. I used an Italian cheese blend and used a combination of pepperoni and salami. I left the sauce on the side for dipping and these were oh so good! You could easily put your favorite ingredients inside this and design your ideal pizza wrap - YUMMY! Read More

My mom has made these for 20+ years. She, however, put down foil, then a tortilla and the fixings *yes cheese first and last* then folded tortilla over and sealed the foil up and put them *IN* the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. I make this often when the kids are feeling picky and I am in a pinch for dinner or lunch or snack time. Read More

We used to have a caterer that brought these into work and I would buy one every time. This is exactly how there were made except the also had suasage canadian bacon and supreme (that had pepperoni sausage and green peppers). You can play around with these and they're very tasty! They also make a quick lunch! Read More

Good quick dinner. I didn't use the margerine (my pan was a non stick) and I made my own pizza sauce. Inside my own pizza "quesadilla" I added pickled jalapenos. Kids especially liked this. Read More

Very good and simple! I didn't use any butter at all...I used a nonstick pan and didn't need to use anything. I want to stress what another reviewer said..put cheese down as the first and last layer and they hold together really well. The recipe says to use a tablespoon of sauce on each one but I like a lot of sauce so I put a few spoonfuls on each one. They were very messy! Next time (and there WILL be a next time) I will follow the recipe and use the correct amount of sauce! Or I might try just serving the sauce on the side. I served them with a little salad it made a cute little dinner for my husband and me! Yum! Read More

Since I'm pretty much obsessed with any form of pizza I've been making these for years. I use mozzarella store brand pizza sauce (which I like better than the brand name) and turkey pepperoni. I use cooking spray instead of butter. I sometimes eat these as a wrap cold with fresh tomato kind of like a pizza lunchable (some think it's gross but I like it) and also pop them in the toaster oven or microwave. Read More
