There’s nothing better than a bowl of warm tomato soup and a sandwich to dip into it, but this pepperoni pizza grilled cheese sandwich is a fun and delicious way to switch up your sandwich game.

What Bread to Use for Grilled Cheese Sandwiches?

You can use various types of bread to create your pizza sandwiches, such as sourdough bread slices or Italian bread.

Our all-time favorite bread choice is sourdough bread.

It has the best flavor and texture for pan grilling and holding on to the yummy pizza toppings inside.

Grilled Cheese Preparation

Use a nonstick pan to grill your sandwich.

Butter is the most common way to prepare this American classic for the nonstick pan, but feel free to get creative by using olive oil or whatever you have on hand.

You can even use mayo to spread on pieces of bread to cook in the pan, as it acts as butter and adds richness and even more crispness to the crust.

Just like with pizza, you can season the “crust” or outside of the bread.

Try garlic butter by adding garlic powder on top of your spread butter or even Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese for a crispy crust to compliment the creamy, melty cheese.

Spread the butter on your bread of choice.

Assemble the sandwich by placing the butter side down and adding cheese, pepperoni, tomato slice, and fresh basil. 

Place the other piece of bread on top and then place it in the pan. 

Flip to cook both sides evenly.
