Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe

Did you know that April is Grilled Cheese Month? And April 12th is Grilled Cheese Day! Since grilled cheese and pizza are probably my two favorite foods, I had to do a little mashup and make this ooey-gooey, cheesy, and over-the-top Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwich! 

Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe

I made this Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwich using my favorite grilled cheese sandwich bread and cheese: Sourdough and Cheddar Cheese. However, you can mix it up and use whatever your favorite grilled cheese bread and cheese is! And then after the sandwich is cooked, I topped it with traditional pizza toppings including tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni! 

It’s seriously over-the-top and not something I would make every day, but perfect for celebrating Grilled Cheese Day!
