It is time for the May Crazy Cooking Challenge. I can't believe that it is May already. I guess time flies when you are having fun, as the saying goes. This month the challenge was to find a grilled cheese recipe, make it, and post about it. I love grilled cheese, but thought what can you really do to make a grill cheese sandwich different. Boy was I wrong; there were a ton of recipes to choose from.
Once I knew what the cooking challenge was I headed over to Pinterest and found several interesting grilled cheese recipes. The one that caught my eye was the pizza grilled cheese from Forkful Of Comfort. Kristen has a wonderful blog full of tasty looking recipes. Like Kristen said in her blog; who doesn't like grilled cheese or pizza? It is the perfect sandwich for those who do love grilled cheese and pizza. And it sure is a heck of a lot easier than making homemade pizza.
This sandwich turns out to be gooey and delicious. The pepperoni and the Italian seasoning give a great twist to the everyday grilled cheese sandwich. The pizza sauce is the final touch to this wonderful sandwich that gives the real taste of pizza. You won't want to miss making this pizza grilled cheese it is super easy to make and it is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
So thank you to Tina from Moms Crazy Cooking for sponsoring the Crazy Cooking Challenge again this month. Also want to say thank you to Kristen at Forkful Of Comfort. Please check out her blog, you will enjoy all the wonderful recipe you will find at her site.
Pizza Grilled Cheese (Adapted from Kristen@ Forkful Of Comfort)
4 slices of French or Italian bread (makes 2 sandwiches)
Butter or margarine
Italian seasoning or basil
Parmesan cheese (optional)
Pizza or spaghetti sauce for dipping
Warm a large skillet over medium heat. Butter each piece of bread on one side. When skillet is hot place a slice of bread butter side down on the skillet. Cover the slice of bread with slices of mozzarella cheese and shake Italian seasoning or basil on top of cheese (I added a enough so the cheese was lightly covered with seasoning). Top this with a few shakes of Parmesan cheese if you so desire. Top with a desired amount of pepperonis (I used enough to cover the cheese). Add another layer of mozzarella cheese like before and cover with the second slice of bread. Repeat with second sandwich. When the bottom slice of bread is golden brown carefully flip over. Once both sides are brown and cheese is melted and gooey remove from pan, cut, and serve immediately. Serve with pizza or spaghetti sauce. Enjoy!!
