Supreme Pizzadillas

Jump to Recipe

I can be indecisive sometimes – do I want pizza…do I want quesadillas? How about both of them made into one amazing meal. My favorite type of pizza is red sauce with Italian sausage crumbles, pepperoni, bell pepper and red onion – so that is exactly what I put in these Supreme Pizzadillas. And a super easy homemade Marinara Dip – which is a little thicker than pasta sauce, perfect for dipping.

These quesadillas are made with my favorite pizza toppings, so you can do what ever you like most. Just keep in mind that water content to things – if you add mushrooms, olives, or jalapenos, you will need to drain off extra liquid. Too much water content will sog out your quesadillas. You could also go total meat-lovers, with ham, bacon, pepperoni and sausage. You need a full sized decent griddle for this recipe – one that can cook at least 4 of these. So that everyone can eat hot food at the same time.

These are rather fillings quesadillas – so I didn’t serve a side dish. If you needed to stretch it, you could do a yummy green salad or mozzarella sticks as an appetizer. The marinara is also great for mozzarella sticks, fried calamari and cheesy bread. I serve my marinara in simple 8 oz ramekins. It is important to have something to hold the sauce instead of just putting it on the plate.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.

  1. I love this idea! We’ve increasingly become bigger fans of thin crust pizza, but this is like taking it all the way! All the pizza flavor without all the dough! Can’t wait to try this!
