Filled with three pleasing pizza toppings, quesadillas take on a slight smoky flavor when prepared on the grill.

4
flour or spinach-flavored tortillas (8 to 10 inches in diameter)
2
cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 ounces)
2
ounces sliced pepperoni (about 30 slices)
1
cup pizza sauce, heated

Steps

  • 1 Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Place 2 of the tortillas on cookie sheet. Sprinkle each with 1/2 cup of the cheese. Top each with half of the pepperoni. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of remaining cheese over each. Top each with tortilla.
  • 2 Transfer quesadillas to grill 4 to 6 inches from low heat. Cover and grill 2 to 3 minutes, rotating occasionally, until bottom tortilla is golden brown. Turn over with broad pancake turner. Cover and grill 2 to 3 minutes longer or until bottom tortilla is golden brown.
  • 3 Transfer quesadillas back to cookie sheet. Cut each quesadilla into 8 wedges. Serve with pizza sauce.

Expert Tips

These quesadillas can also be cooked on the stove. Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Assemble one quesadilla in the skillet. Cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side until tortillas are golden brown. Repeat to make second quesadilla. To keep quesadillas warm, place them on an ungreased cookie sheet in a 250° oven until ready to serve.

Any of your favorite pizza toppings can be used on these quesadillas. Add a few sliced red bell peppers, green onions or ripe olives.
