pizza grilled cheese

Recently while looking on Pinterest I saw where someone had pinned a picture of a pizza grilled cheese sandwich.  I didn’t click on it to look at the recipe but I thought “Hey, that sounds good and I can do that!” – so here’s what I came up with:

You’ll need bread, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, butter, and pizza seasonings (basil and thyme)

p.s. we’ve started making grilled cheese in the oven rather than a skillet the way I always used to because its easier and they are crispier, which we like

spread butter on the bread and sprinkle with seasonings (the butter part will be on the insides of your sandwich – if you turn the butter sides out your sandwich will be soggy)

sprinkle with mozzarella cheese

then add pepperoni (to one or both sides of the bread – depending on how much you want)

bake until cheese is melted

then put the two halves together and stick back in the oven

yum yummy yum yum



  • bread
  • butter (or margarine, Smart Balance, etc.)
  • cheese (I used mozzarella)
  • pepperoni (I used turkey pepperoni)
  • seasoning (I used basil and thyme – any Italian seasonings will do)


Lightly butter one side of each piece of bread, then sprinkle on your seasonings.  Top each butter side with cheese, pepperoni, and any other toppings you might choose.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 8 minutes, then put the sandwich halves together and bake for another 2 minutes.

Serve with pizza sauce for dipping or maybe some tomato soup.

This would be a South Beach Phase 2 meal.
