Gluten Free Pepperoni Pizza Quesadilla

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 8 mins

In my quest for gluten-free, yeast-free pizza, I'm always trying different things to get that pizza taste that I crave but can't have. One day a few months ago I was really craving pizza while I was at the grocery store, so I bought some pizza sauce, turkey pepperoni and mozarella cheese and this is what I came up with. Not quite the same thing as the pizza I remember, but a pretty close second and it's ready in a pinch! Note: I've also made this with Italian turkey sausage or just plain cheese depending on my mood.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 tortilla (I use Food 4 Life's Brown Rice Flour Tortillas)
  • 2 tablespoons pizza sauce (WalMart's Great Value brand is GF)
  • 8 slices turkey pepperoni (Hormel brand is GF)
  • 14 cup 2% mozzarella cheese (Kraft)
  • cooking spray


  1. Spread one half of the tortilla with the pizza sauce.
  2. Top with half of the cheese.
  3. Top with pepperoni.
  4. Top with remaining cheese.
  5. Fold top over.
  6. Heat a grill pan over medium high heat.
  7. Spray with oil.
  8. Place quesadilla on grill pan.
  9. Cook for 5 minutes and flip.
  10. Cook for about 2-3 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
  11. Cut into wedges and enjoy!

Yummy pizza snacks! I used corn tortillas instead of rice flour ones (Mission brand are gluten-free), otherwise made as directed. With a little cooking spray the tortillas cooked up nice and crispy, great with the pizza fillings and gooey cheese. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Sensational! I have only made Mexican pizza with tortillas in the oven, and really loved this stove top method. It was really quick, did taste like pizza, and curbed the pizza craving. I used tomato paste and herbs instead of pizza sauce, since that is what we had, and flipped them the first time after 2-3 minutes, turning the heat down so they wouldn't burn. This was my first time using Food for Life's GF tortillas, and they were actually tasty - head and shoulders above the last 2 brands of GF tortillas I have tried. We made three of these for two people for dinner with salad.
