Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Pizza Grilled Cheese

4 slices of bread
butter or margarine
4 slices of mozzarella cheese
pepperoni (I used reg and cut in half but mini size would be good too)
Italian seasoning or basil
Parmesan cheese (opt)
pizza sauce for dipping

*Warm a medium/large skillet over medium heat. Butter each piece of bread on one side. When skillet is hot place a piece of bread butter side down on the skillet then add one slice of cheese and small shake of Italian seasoning or basil (add a small shake of parmesan cheese here too if desired). Top with a desired amount of pepperonis (I used about 8 -10 whole regular pepperonis per sandwich) If any other toppings are desired, add now. Add another slice of mozzarella and top with slice bread butter side up. Repeat with second sandwich. When bottom slice is golden brown then flip over carefully. Once both sides are brown remove from pan cut and serve with pizza sauce if desired. Make 2 sandwiches

This is a recipe that I got off pinterest. It was originally posted by Amber. We served these to the missionaries and they loved them. I only used one slice of cheese but layered the pepperoni well. I did not add the parmesan but did spread some left over pizza sauce on the bread before layering.(instead of dipping) I cooked them in my George Forman and they were delicious. I tried them again for just Will and I and instead of using butter, I sprayed the outside of the bread with butter flavored pam and they tasted just as good to us - plus save some calories.
