Grilled cheese and pizza are my favorite foods, so why not make the ultimate food? Adjust the "pizza toppings" to your individual taste and be amazed! haha

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This grilled cheese is like a supreme pizza in a grilled sandwich - a fantastic idea! We loaded our sandwich with all the suggested toppings and fell in love. But tailor the sandwich with your favorite pizza toppings. Buttery grilled sourdough holds in the gooey cheese, hearty pepperoni, and salty prosciutto. Fresh basil adds a pop of flavor. We added a little sauce inside the grilled sandwich and served some on the side for dipping. If you don't have a panini press, these can be grilled in a skillet.

How To Make grilled cheese pizza supreme

  • Gathered ingredients on a cutting board.
    Prepare your ingredients and heat your sandwich press.
  • Two slices of bread buttered.
    Butter/lightly spray one side of each bread.
  • Mozzarella cheese, sauce, pepperoni, veggies, basil, and Parmesan cheese on one side of bread.
    On the non-buttered side, start your layers: Start with a layer of mozzarella cheese, a few teaspoons of pizza sauce, 4-5 slices of pepperoni, veggies, fresh basil, and a little Parmesan cheese.
  • Prosciutto added to the sandwich.
    Top all of that with thin-cut ham or prosciutto.
  • Provolone on top of the prosciutto.
    Then a layer of provolone cheese.
  • Second slice of bread on top, buttered side out.
    Top with a final slice of bread, butter side out.
  • Sandwich placed in a panini press.
    Carefully close the sandwich press.
  • Grilling the sandwich until golden brown and cheese is melted.
    Cook a few minutes until golden brown and the cheese is completely melted.
  • Layers inside the Grilled Cheese Pizza Supreme.
    Because it gets messy sometimes with the pizza sauce, you can heat it separately in the microwave while the sandwich cooks and just use it to dip the sandwich in.
