Recipe Notes

How do you make quesadillas in the microwave?

Assemble the quesadilla as instructed. Place on a microwave-safe plate and cook on HIGH until the cheese is melted (about 1 minute).

How do you make pizza quesadillas in the oven?

Assemble the quesadilla as instructed. Place on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Spritz the top of the quesadilla with olive oil or cooking spray (this will help it get crispy and golden brown in the oven). Bake the quesadilla at 450 degrees F for about 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and tortilla is golden brown.
