Pizza Grilled Cheese

Grilled cheese a la Italiana! This grilled cheese tastes so much like pizza, you might just find yourself making it for your family a couple of times a week!! No need for pizza dough or freezer-based products. Slice, spread, cook and 10 minutes later you have dinner.

  • Yields: 2 sandwiches
  • Preparation: 24 minutes



  1. Place 4 slices of bread on work surface. Spread pasta sauce evenly over each slice. Top each with 1 slice of cheese, ¼ of pasta sauce, ¼ of pepperoni (if using), remaining cheese slice and Parmesan. Top with remaining bread slices. Spread half of butter over top of bread.
  2. Place sandwiches, buttered side down, two at a time, in non-stick skillet on medium heat. Spread half of remaining butter over top of bread. Cook for about 5 minutes or until underside is golden and cheese has started to melt. Flip sandwiches over; cook for 3 to 4 minutes longer or until underside is golden and cheese is melted.
  3. Repeat with remaining sandwiches and butter.
  • Excellent source of folate and calcium.
