Pizza Grilled Cheese | Crumbs and Chaos Easy and kid friendly Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are a quick meal the whole family will enjoy!

Selective eaters…one of the great joys of parenting.  Seriously, I can’t keep up with all of the things my kids abruptly decide that they don’t care for from one day to the next.  I don’t plan meals around their preferences (being picky is not an allergy!). I’m of the philosophy that dinner is what’s on the table – there will be another meal come breakfast time if you don’t eat this one.

Pepperoni is always a winner at my house, so adding that to a meal almost guarantees that they’ll eat it.  Grilled cheese sandwiches, also a winner, serve with pizza sauce or tomato soup for dipping and you’ve got a quick weeknight meal.  This recipe could also be called – grilled cheese for a crowd.  Crank up that oven and bake the sandwiches all at once so that everyone sits down to eat together.  Feel free to add other pizza toppings to your sandwich as you like – it’s all gooey and delicious 🙂

Pizza Grilled Cheese

Easy Pizza Grilled Cheese is kid friendly and simple to make.


  • 1 loaf of ITALIAN BREAD (sliced from the bread aisle)
  • BUTTER, room temperature


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Butter one side of a piece of bread, place it butter side down on a baking sheet. Repeat, laying out the first piece of bread for as many sandwiches as you would like to make.
  3. Top the first piece of bread with sliced mozzarella (enough to cover the bread), layer on 4-5 slices of pepperoni and a handful of shredded mozzarella. Sprinkle on garlic bread seasoning. Repeat with remaining sandwiches.
  4. Butter one side of the remaining bread, top each sandwich with butter side up.
  5. Bake for 6-7 minutes and check to see if the underside of the sandwich is golden. If it is, flip sandwiches over. Bake another 5--6 minutes and check underside again.
  6. Remove from oven when they're golden. Slice into halves or quarters and serve immediately.


*You can easily make these in a pan or on a panini press if you don't want to bake them in a large batch in the oven.

    I couldn’t find garlic bread seasoning at the grocery store I went to. Is there something else I could substitute?
