Pizza Sandwiches Recipe

I give grilled cheese a special treatment by using slices of mozzarella cheese and adding delicious extras like pepperoni and fresh tomatoes. Dipped in warm pizza sauce, this will be a fast favorite! —Mary Monaco, Columbus, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 8 slices Italian bread (3/4 inch thick)

  • 4 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

"Tasty and easy to make! I followed the directions exactly and everyone was pretty happy with this recipe. Next time I make them I'm going to use shaved fresh parmesan instead of the grated, canned stuff."

"These sandwiches are an amazing new twist on a boring grilled cheese. You can spice them up in tons of ways with different cheeses and spices. My family loves them."

"My mom made these for us growing up and I carry it on with my kids. Variation - in lieu of tomatoes we just slather the pizza sauce right on the bread during the assembly before grilling. No dipping needed! Crispy buttery outsie, gooey cheesey/pizza sauce inside!

(and I don't know why or how....but just before eating open it up and put bread-N-butter pickle chips on it...the flavor taste combination is out of this world (sounds gross but you have got to try it to understand - just something with the cold & sweet crunch mixed with it)"

"I made these for lunch today for my boyfriend and his 8 1/2 year old son - HUGE HIT! My step-son (he practically is anyway!) declared once again that I'm an awesome cook. He wasn't crazy about the tomatoes but BF and I both loved them. I used a vegetable slicer to slice the tomatoes so they were nice and thin and not messy to eat. DEFINITELY making these again. Make sure not to load them too full and make sure also to have the layers nice, even and flat for ease of flipping."

"I used chopped black olives instead of tomatoes. I also prefer to grill the sandwiches without butter on my foreman grill, so they aren't so greasy. Very good!"
