Ingredients for Homemade Pizza Quesadillas

Making these delicious homemade gluten free pizza quesadillas only requires six ingredients. You’ll find these at your local grocery store, but you’ll find great deals on gluten free items like seasonings at Thrive Market.

To make these easy gluten free quesadillas you’ll need:

  • Corn tortillas. Most corn tortillas from the store SHOULD be naturally gluten-free, but you can sub any gluten free tortilla of choice like these Siete tortillas made with Cassava.
  • Shredded mozzarella. You could sub dairy free cheese here too. See below for ideas.
  • Pepperoni. Or other topping of choice
  • Italian seasoning.
  • Tomato sauce. For dipping! This post has the best gluten free sauce brands!
  • Nonstick Cooking Spray.

Can you make these dairy free, vegan, or corn free?

Are you dairy free?  Sub the mozzarella with some vegan cheese (I use Daiya because it’s certified gluten free—learn more about gluten-free certification and labeling here). 

Curious about cheese on a gluten free diet? This post unpacks what cheeses are gluten free!

Are you a vegetarian? Sub your favorite toppings like black olives or mushrooms!  

Don’t like corn tortillas? Swap out the corn tortillas for a brown rice tortilla. 

This recipe can be easily modified to fit your needs.

Side note–there’s something about giving my kids food that can be eaten with fingers and dipped in sauce that makes them want to eat. 

Does anyone know what it is with kids and dip??

What kind of sauce do you use for your pizza sauce?

Great question! We use whatever is available (as long as it's gluten-free). I really like Trader Joe's Pizza sauce (in the refrigerated section) but I'm also a fan of Classico which is shelf-stable until opening.

I love to make a pizza like this with cashew cheese and tons of greens! But I'm going to upgrade it next time and put a second tortilla on top because damn that looks good 😍. Thank you for the inspiration!


Thursday 8th of November 2018

Yay! I hope you enjoy! Do you make your own cashew cheese? Or do you have a specific brand that you like?


Wednesday 7th of November 2018

This sounds amazing! We often have pizza/movie nights on Fridays, we will totally try this out!
