Grilled Cheese Pizza Sandwich

Grilled Cheese Pizza Sandwich

Introduction

This tastes just like cheese pizza! Pair this with a salad and you have a great pizzeria style lunch without the calories attached--or the bill. This tastes just like cheese pizza! Pair this with a salad and you have a great pizzeria style lunch without the calories attached--or the bill.
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    2 slices mixed grain bread (I like Orowheat)
    2 tablespoons marinara sauce
    1/4 cup mozzarella cheese (low moisture, part skim)
    1 teaspoon shredded Parmesan
    Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Spread 1 tablespoon of marinara sauce on each piece of bread. Spread mozzarella cheese evenly, on side with sauce, on first piece of bread. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over mozzarella. Top with second piece of bread, sauce side down. Place in heated pan and cook until cheese inside is melted and outside is golden brown...or darker if you like. Plate up and enjoy! Makes one (1) serving.

    Great pizza substitute when I am craving sauce and cheese. I used my George Foreman grill and sprayed the bread slices with olive oil spray before grilling. Added a sprinkle of italian seansoning to the cheese before sandwiching together. Yum :) - 1/29/09

    I used to make this for my teenage son, he was trying to lose weight, but I would use half of a whole wheat pita, stuff it with part skim shredded mozzarella, turkey pepperoni and the lowest cal pizza sauce that I could find. Then I would melt it under the broiler til the cheese melted. - 6/26/09

    You can make this or any "grilled"cheese without any oil by just putting it open faced in a toaster oven until cheese melts. Shaves off a few calories. - 3/4/09

    I loved this recipe. I make it with Arnold's Sandwich Thins, a little light butter (for grilling) and 3 thin slices of pepperoni. It adds a few calories, but it satisfies my pozza urge- so it's worth it. - 4/22/09

    Was okay, certainly kid friendly. Would recommend sourdough or Italian bread, use george forman grill or panini maker for best results. I'd call these Pizza Paninis. I brushed the outside of the bread lightly with olive oil and added turkey pepperoni in my kids' sandwiches. - 1/29/09

    I loved the idea but can't let myself have that much sodium in one sandwich. I subbed a little pesto and sliced tomato for the marinara and used a nonstick griddle. - 7/2/09

    I like making these with whole wheat pita bread, cause they are round like pizza:) I've had plain cheese and also have added lean ham or turkey pepperoni at times. Endless possibilities! Thanks for sharing. - 4/14/09

    i like to do that too, but instead of bread I like to use whole wheat buns ;) My kids love them,because they get to help make their own and they think that they have a personal pan pizza :) - 1/29/09

    I made this for dinner tonight, it was very good! I used an 80 calorie slice of Mozzerella cheese in mine, and left out the Parmesan. I added some Boca crumbles to mine too. I sprayed the outside of the bread with olive oil spray and made this on my George Foreman grill. - 7/25/09

    I added pineapple for a sweet kick and a fruit serving. It was so fast and a better choice instead of fast food on the nights we're in a rush! My sons very first food was grilled cheese so a variation was good for him he loved it!! - 7/4/09

    We've made this same thing in a sandwich maker. Sometimes we make it with whole wheat tortilla. It's great! We also like to sprinkle garlic powder and crushed red pepper. Yumm! The sandwich maker makes it into a little toasty pocket. - 7/12/09

    I really enjoyed this, I added a few banana peppers to mine for a little kick! I also used 1/4 c. Barsilla sauce and cut out a few more extra calories. YUMMY!!! - 5/4/09
