I don’t know, maybe I was a born food blogger. Even as a kid, I loved to mess around with ingredients. Naturally, my favourite was anything pizza… English muffin mini pizzas? Of course!… Grilled cheese pizzas? Done that too… Frozen waffle pizza sandwiches? You betcha!… But the best was, and still is, the pizza quesadilla.
These are so quick and easy, you can throw them together and have them on the table long before delivery arrives. Kids will love to put on their own toppings (at least I always did), and they’re super customizable. Plus, since they don’t go into the oven, they’re the perfect fix for those summer pizza cravings!

Vegan Pepperoni Pizza Quesadillas
Recipe Type: main
Makes: 1 serving
- 1 Tortilla (I used wheat)
- 1/4 cup Pizza Sauce
- 1/2 cup shredded Vegan Mozzarella (I used Daiya)
- 2 tbsp diced Green Pepper
- 1 tbsp diced Red Onion
- 10 – 12 slices Vegan Pepperoni (I used Yves)
Place the tortilla in a pan or on a griddle over low heat.
Spoon pizza sauce over the tortilla and spread it out, towards the edges.
On one half of the tortilla, sprinkle half of the cheese. Arrange the pepperoni slices evenly on top of the cheese. Then sprinkle the diced pepper and onion over the pepperoni, followed by the remaining cheese.
When the tortilla has become warm and is pliable, fold the sauce-only side of the tortilla on top of the half with the toppings.
Turn the heat up to medium-low, and cook for 1 – 2 minutes. Using a spatula, carefully flip the tortilla and cook for another 1 – 2 minutes. Repeat this process until the tortilla is browned and the cheese is melty throughout.
Remove from heat and allow to cool for 1 – 2 minutes before slicing into wedges.
Serve with additional pizza sauce for dipping, if desired.
-Don’t be tempted to try to speed things up and increase the heat, as the results will be a burned tortilla and unmelted cheese.
