Grilled Cheese Pizza Sandwich

This take on a classic grilled cheese is super yummy and easy to make. My son asks for this for lunch almost daily. Feel free to add extra "pizza toppings" to the inside of your sandwich – ham, sliced tomato, the possibilities are endless. Enjoy!

    Ooh – this looks great! Another tip I learned for grilled cheese is to use mayo instead of butter on the outside of the bread. It makes the bread extra crispy, crunchy and a bit tangy which compliments the sourdough. Yummy!
