Pizza Quesadillas Recipe

Here is an easy and quick lunch for a campout. You can cook the quesadillas on a piece of foil on the grill or on a cast iron griddle. In a pinch we have even cooked them directly on the griddle – you just have to be a little more careful when you are turning them.

The Scouts seem to appreciate this recipe since there is very little clean up. They also like choosing what goes in their quesadillas.

Pizza Quesadillas Recipe


  • Fire
  • Grill over fire
  • Cast iron griddle or heavy duty aluminum foil
  • Spatula or tongs to turn the quesadilla


  • Large flour tortillas (burrito size or bigger)
  • Pizza sauce
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Pizza toppings of choice – pepperoni, cooked sausage, black olives, green bell peppers, mushrooms, sweet onions, etc.


  1. Prepare your fire. If using a griddle, place it over the heat to warm up.
  2. Place the tortilla on a flat surface and spread a couple of tablespoons of pizza sauce on half of it.
  3. Sprinkle some mozzarella cheese over the sauce.
  4. Top with your favorite pizza toppings
  5. Fold half of tortilla without any toppings over the topped half.
  6. Place the tortilla on the hot griddle or on a piece of aluminum foil on the grill.

    I’ve been making these for years, we even make them backpacking. I always called them “Pizzadillas.” We would often make these in a backpacking situation where water was at a premium. They don’t require any water to make, and since the boys can eat them with their hands, there’s a minimum of clean up.
