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


    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


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

    Isprayed the outside of the bread with "I can't believe it's not butter" spray, that way it got nice and toasty. I also used Franz Whole Grain white bread. Yummy! nice recipe, thanks! - 9/12/08
