Not sure where to start? You can customize with these ideas:
Swap out the cheese for a dairy-free option like vegan mozzarella or cashew cream. Or you can just use a different cheese that is better suited to your tastes
Load up on the veggies by adding in some sautéed mushrooms, peppers, and olives.
Make it a meat lover’s dream by adding in some crumbled bacon, pepperoni, or sausage – or even all three! Okay, so this option won’t make them vegetarian anymore, but the point is you can please all of your picky eaters with one dish!
What is the Best Cheese For the Air Fryer Vegetable Pizza Quesadillas?
If you’re looking for the best cheese for your quesadilla, you’ll want to choose one that is flavorful and melts well. I used what my family likes, but you can use what you have!
One type of cheese that fits both of these criteria is mozzarella.
I chose an Italian cheese blend because my family likes mozzarella and the flavors of Parmesan, Romano, and others. Together they are melty, delicious, and filled with gooey goodness.
