Two of Your Kids Favorites In One Meal! 15 Minute Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe

This was one of my favorites as a kid!  I remember my Mom had this really great sandwich maker, and would make me the most gooey pizza sandwiches!  The cheese would ooze out of the sides, and she would serve it with some warmed pizza sauce!  Way to go Mom, this one is a winner.

I make mine almost the same as Mom, except I just make it like a regular grilled cheese sandwich since I don’t have a sandwich maker like she did.  And instead of pizza sauce, I use some of my homemade spaghetti sauce, because there’s always some in the fridge.

These sandwiches make the perfect week night meal for busy nights when you have to eat and run, or make a great lunch!  Add your favorite pizza toppings to the middle to make it even more special!
