Caprese Quesadilla Recipe

I love a good quesadilla and I love anything caprese - caprese salad, panini's - you name it! So why not make a Caprese Quesadilla?! This recipe combines all of my favorites - tomato, melty fresh mozzarella and a garlic-y pesto to make a delicious homemade quesadilla. My recipe doesn't require too many ingredients (you can jazz it up if you want!) but is super tasty. It is easy to make at home and is quick enough for lunch or a snack. If you love caprese anything or just the idea of melting fresh mozzarella, tomato and basil pesto together in a quesadilla, give this recipe a try!


2 Flour tortillas


Fresh mozzarella

1 tomato (sliced)


  • Spread pesto evenly on inside of both tortillas leaving a small edge around the tortilla shells.
  • Place tortilla in hot grill pan.
  • Add layer of fresh mozzarella.
  • Add sliced tomato.
  • Place second tortilla over top of the mozzarella and tomato and using a spatula press down gently to seal the tortillas.
  • Cover and cook on one side until cheese begins to melt.
  • Flip over and continue cooking on the other side.
  • Remove from grill pan when cheese is completely melted.
  • Cut into triangle pieces.
