Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use a different type of tortilla?

Absolutely! While the recipe suggests flour tortillas, you can experiment with whole wheat, spinach, or even gluten-free variants.

Is the butter necessary?

Butter enhances flavor and helps in browning the tortilla. However, you can also use olive oil or non-stick spray for a lighter version.

Do I have to use mozzarella cheese?

Mozzarella is recommended for its melting quality, but feel free to use your favorite meltable cheese like cheddar or Monterey Jack.


  • Butter: Olive oil or non-stick cooking spray.
  • Pizza Sauce: Homemade tomato sauce, pesto, or even BBQ sauce for a twist.
  • Mozzarella Cheese: Cheddar, Monterey Jack, or a blend of your favorite cheeses.
  • Pepperoni: Any protein or vegetarian alternative like chicken, tofu, or tempeh.

This recipe contains dairy (cheese) and gluten (flour tortilla). For those with allergies or sensitivities, consider using dairy-free cheese alternatives and gluten-free tortillas.

  • Avoid overfilling to prevent spillage and ensure even cooking.
  • Customize your fillings! As noted, feel free to add ingredients like Canadian bacon, sausage, mushrooms, olives, onions, bell peppers, and more.
  • For a crisper quesadilla, lightly brush the tortilla’s outer layer with butter or oil.

Storage & Reheating Instructions

Cool any leftovers to room temperature, then store them in an airtight container. They’ll stay fresh in the fridge for up to 3 days. To reheat, use a skillet over medium heat or an oven preheated to 350°F until warmed through. If you have a batch you’d like to freeze, wrap them individually in plastic wrap before placing in a freezer bag. They can be frozen for up to a month. Reheat directly from frozen following the same skillet or oven method.
