Pepperoni Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Pepperoni Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwich

My kids were home from school for a snow/ice day yesterday due to bad road conditions. My kids and a friend were all bundled up playing outside so I decided to make them a nice warm sandwich for lunch. I had some pizza sauce in the fridge along with some mozzarella cheese and pepperoni slices. I decided to make a grilled cheese extra special by using pizza ingredients. My kids and their friend all loved these sandwiches and deemed them blog-worthy.

Lightly butter the remaining piece of bread on one side then spread a bit more sauce on the other, place it on top of the sandwich. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown. Carefully flip the sandwich with a spatula and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown. Slice in half and serve immediately. Enjoy!

  1. Great sandwich idea and I’m sure the kids loved it and their snow day. Like bacon, pepperoni makes almost everything better.

  2. What fun sandwiches! Who doesn’t love grilled cheese? And with pizza flavors added — what flavor! Good stuff — thanks.

  3. Great idea! I was thinking of having a grilled cheese with tomato a few minutes ago.

    And Mark has not had a single snow delay or closure this year, although the past 3 mornings have featured single digit temperatures. I expect to get slammed in late January and February, because it usually evens out.

  4. Amazing flavours Pam.
    Everything I love between two slices of bread.

    1. Pooja,

      You can try but I have a feeling it would get soggy. It’s definitely tastiest hot from the stove.
