Grilled Cheese Pizza Sandwich

This is one of those recipes that combines two of the greatest comfort foods into one. Part grilled-cheese….part pizza. Recipe below makes one sandwich. Extrapolate to make multiples.

I also like this one because it seems to be a recipe that you can make by scrounging your fridge and only coming up with a few ingredients. Add some salami slice, pepperoni pieces or sausage crumbles and you’ve got the Meat Lover’s addition.


2 slices mixed grain bread.

2 tablespoons marinara sauce ( or more if you’d also like to dip your sandwich)

1/4 cup mozzarella cheese (low moisture, part skim)

1 teaspoon shredded parmesan

Butter (for outside of bread)

Salt and pepper to taste


Spread 1 tablespoon of marinara sauce on each piece of bread. Spread mozzarella cheese evenly, on side with sauce, on first piece of bread. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over mozzarella. Top with second piece of bread, sauce side down. Place in heated pan and cook until cheese inside is melted and outside is golden brown…or darker if you like. Plate up and enjoy! Makes one (1) serving.
