So apparently I am going to have a summer grilled cheese sandwich series on my blog, and it continues with pizza grilled cheese. Yes you read that right. It is pretty scrumptious, and it’ll curb your desire to spend money on pizza delivery. I promise. I saute mushrooms, onions, and black olives. Then I add some pepperoni, since that’s what I like to eat on my pizza. You can substitute the filling ingredients for whatever toppings you prefer or have on hand. I do suggest using sautéed or roasted veggies though. Since the sandwich is only in the pan for a few minutes, it’s not long enough to cook the vegetables.
Feel free to check out my other grilled cheese creations here:
Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwich
2 pieces of buttered, sliced Italian bread
2-3 Tbsp marinara or spagettie sauce
1/4 cup total of desired toppings
1/4 cup of shredded cheese (I used an Italian cheese mix combo. Mozzarella or provolone would work well.)
On one side coat the pieces of bread in butter.
Build the sandwich by placing the buttered sides of the bread out. On the other sides equally spread the marinara on both slices. Add the toppings and then the cheese.
Heat skillet over medium heat. Cook sandwich on each side until golden brown. When turning the sandwich over, do it slowly and carefully so the filling does not come out.
