This is one of our go-to meals on a night when we need to eat fast, and my kids absolutely love them. I usually have to make two full batches because everyone wants more. They might be the most requested sandwich in our home.
I won’t even say they are necessarily healthy, but they are good! And did I happen to mention, they are super easy? (and completely perfect for hot summer evenings we don’t want a lot of heat in the kitchen).
Grilled Pizza Sandwiches
For a family of four:
8 slices of bread (the thicker the better – your choice, anything you would make grilled cheese with)
8 slices of part skim mozzarella cheese (I use shredded all the time, works just as great!)
4 tsp. of Parmesan Cheese
4 dashes of garlic salt
24 slices of pepperoni (you can’t go wrong with more here…)
pizza sauce (though we use spaghetti sauce because we like the flavor better)
We usually butter our bread first. We butter one side of each piece of bread, while our griddle is heating up.
Oh, and you can totally do this on the stovetop in a pan too.
On the griddle, we throw down one slice of bread butter side down, then we immediately begin building the sandwich up on top of it.
First layer it with a slice of Mozarella.
Then we top that with six slices of pepperoni. I’m actually lying. LOL We usually use 9 pieces because we love pepperoni and this ensures that every single bite has pepperoni. LOL
Next we sprinkle a teaspoon of Parmesan and then a dash of garlic salt.
We top all that with another piece of mozzarella cheese.
Top the whole thing off with the final piece of bread butter side UP and by this time – it’s usually ready to flip.
Flip the sandwich over and continue cooking until golden brown. Serve with a side of pizza sauce (or spaghetti sauce) for dipping! Yum!
