How to Make Pizza Quesadilla in the Air Fryer:

Step 1: Prep the air fryer basket

Start by spraying the bottom of the air fryer basket with oil (this will help crisp up the bottom of the tortilla). 

Step 2: Build your pizza 

Place the tortilla in the bottom of the air fryer basket.  Then add the pizza sauce spreading it out to the edges.

Next, sprinkle mozzarella cheese, and your favorite pizza toppings on. 

Then add another tortilla on top and spray the top tortilla with oil.

Step 3: Bake the quesadilla 

To keep the quesadilla from blowing around in the air fryer, place the air fryer wire rack or toothpicks on top.

Air fry at 360 °F or 182 °C for 4-6 minutes, or until the tortilla is crispy, and golden, and the cheese is melty to your liking.
