Grilled Pizza Sandwiches

Share this Recipe!

These Grilled Pizza Sandwiches are always a favorite. Tons of gooey melted mozzarella and loads of spicy pepperoni make these super simple grilled cheese sandwiches a staple lunch around here. Smother them in sauce after or simply serve with a side of sauce for dipping.

Grilled Pizza Sandwiches!

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 sure 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).

Or cold winter nights, served with tomato soup to dip in instead? 

Grilled Pizza Sandwiches

Either way, they are a total comfort food and a favorite snack among pizza loving kids! 

I just recently made them for my 3 year old grandson to test and see the reaction since his mom who used to adore them, is all grown up.

He loved them! 

Guess what she’s making for him now?

So easy and so delicious! 

There is a printable recipe for these Grilled Pizza Sandwiches below.

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…)
butter
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!
