Grilled cheese like you’ve never had it! Celebrate Grilled Cheese Month (or any month!) with this Parmesan crusted pepperoni pizza grilled cheese recipe.
Grilled cheese is clearly one of the best foods known to man. And it’s so adaptable! Add bacon. Add a huge, tasty, juicy tomato (those are coming eventually, right?), add pesto, add whatever the heck you want. Or whatever you have in your fridge.
I’m also obsessed with anything “pizza.” Pizza Quinoa Stuffed Peppers. Pizza Lasagna Rolls. Pizza Macaroni and Cheese Muffins. Pizza Chicken Tenders. Pizza Pizza Pizza. Pizza turkey burgers, Pizza baked pasta and pizza paninis. But it’s grilled cheese month, not pizza month.
This pizza grilled cheese sandwich is stuffed with pepperoni, pizza sauce and mozzarella cheese. And if that weren’t enough, it has a crispy Parmesan cheese crust that takes it right over the top!
Bread, cheese, butter!
Craving more of this trifecta? Here’s a few more recipes for you:
- 2 slices whole grain bread
- 2 teaspoons butter, softened or spreadable
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
- 1 tablespoon pizza sauce
- 6 slices pepperoni
- 4 tablespoons mozzarella, divided
- Butter one side of each slice of bread with softened butter. On unbuttered side of one slice, spread on pizza sauce. Then add about 3 tablespoons of the mozzarella, lay out the pepperoni, and then top with the rest of the mozzarella and the other slice of bread. The buttered side should be on the outside.
- On one buttered side, spread 1 tablespoon of grated parmesan cheese and press down gently. Place this face down on a skillet or griddle heated over medium heat. Top the other buttered side (should be face up in the pan) with the rest of the parmesan cheese.
- Cook for 4-6 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cheese on the inside is melted. Enjoy immediately.
- Measurements are approximate and will vary based on size of bread.
- Sliced mozzarella cheese can be used in place of shredded.
