    I can’t tell you how often I’ve made this recipe since seeing it here on your site. I almost always have all the other ingredients, save pepperoni, lying around the house. Now pepperoni is a staple and I make it for me and my husband all the time! Thanks!

    Decided to whip this up because I love grilled cheese sandwiches of almost any kind. This was delicious! I didn’t have any parmesan cheese on hand so I used gruyere and it was still delicious. You can easily modify the recipe for just one sandwich, which I like.

    Thanks for sharing!

    This was one great sandwich. Made it this summer in Phx in the house. It’s too hot to make a pizza. This was perfect. We get hungry for pizza, and this is the perfect way to have our pizza & eat it too when it’s 100 outside.

    I just now made it, & it was great. 🙂 except the 2 slices of cheese was a bit too much. & Im a cheese lover! Next time i’ll just put one slice. 🙂

    I don’t like butter. Can I use any other ingredients for alternative?

    If you mean for spreading onto the bread, you could try using olive oil.
