Grilled Pizza Sandwich

Here we are again at Crazy Cooking Challenge time over at Mom's Crazy Cooking.  I searched the web for new blogs to find my recipe and actually ended up using this  recipe from Simply Scratch.  Laurie and I are friends on Tasty Kitchen.  Laurie has a beautiful blog and lots of tasty recipes to check out.

I have never made any kind of grilled cheese except for plain ol' american cheese between two pieces of white bread.  So this was quiet fun and tasty trying this new recipe.  I can tell you this was the best grilled cheese I've ever eaten too.  With a crispy crust and a gooey cheesy center with marinara and pepperoni, what's not to love?  You need to try this right now!  Go on, you probably have the ingredients in the fridge just like I did.

Here's what you need:

2 slices white bread or Texas toast
10 slices pepperoni, I use Hormel Turkey Pepperoni (almost no grease)
1-1-1/2 Tbs. butter, at room temperature
2 Tbs. Marinara sauce
2 Tbs. 5-cheese Italian cheese, shredded or Monterey Jack
2 Tbs. Colby Jack, I used pre-shredded on both cheeses
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning

Preheat a skillet over medium until hot.

Butter one side of a slice of bread and place buttered side down on the skillet.
Give the cheeses and Italian seasoning a mix and place half the cheese on the bread.
Top with pepperoni and then the marinara sauce.
 
Top with the rest of the cheese and the second (buttered) slice of bread, butter side up.
 
Toast on first side until a golden brown, 2-3 minutes, then flip and toast on the second side until golden brown and the cheese is all melted.
Remove from griddle, cut in half and serve.
 
Yummiest Grilled Cheese Sandwich Ever!  Definitely making this again and again.

Serves 1 sandwich

Enjoy!
