Pepperoni Pizza Grilled Cheese

If you are a pepperoni pizza lover and turn to a nice grilled cheese for comfort, this sandwich is for you. I know what some of you are thinking, a grilled cheese should only consist of bread, butter and cheese. But no matter what you desire to call it, this is a really tasty sandwich. What’s not to love…. gooey, warm cheese, that slight smoky bite of pepperoni covered in pizza sauce, all hugged between two slices of toasted, buttered bread. *sigh*.

Here’s what you need:

*spreadable butter

*bread slices, 2 pieces per sandwich; I used Italian bread but use what you desire.

*sliced cheese, 2 slices per sandwich; I used Monterrey Colby Jack blend

*pizza sauce


Heat a griddle or large pan on medium heat. Butter one side of each slice of bread.

Place the bread buttered side down onto the heated griddle. Spread desired amount of pizza sauce onto the bread.

Place a slice of cheese on top of the pizza sauce.

Now layer on the pepperoni, add as many layers as you like….. I sure did.

Place another slice of cheese on top of the pepperoni. Spread pizza sauce on remaining slice of buttered bread; place bread butter side up over the pepperoni.

Cook about 3 minutes or until bread is a golden brown, turn the sandwich over and cook for another 3 minutes or until cheese is melted and bread is golden brown on that side. If the bread is getting too brown and cheese has not melted, turn down the heat.

Prepare for some crunchy, cheesy goodness.

Serve and enjoy!
