Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwich

So this month for the crazy cooking challenge...grilled cheese sandwiches!!!

     I married an Italian boy. He loves anything that has tomatoes, meat and carbs...preferably pasta! When I saw this sandwich from "Forkful of Comfort", I *knew* that this was the sandwich for my family.
     While shopping for the ingredients I found mini pepperoni that fit the bill perfectly for what I wanted to do.  We LOVE our pizza with pepperoni, bacon, cheese and onion.  So I got together all our favorite ingredients. I used shredded cheese but I think if I make it again I will use slices instead. When I put together the sandwich, I sprinkled on some Italian Seasoning to give it a little more kick.

Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwich

2 slices of bread
shredded cheese
crispy bacon bits
diced onion
pepperoni (mini or regular cut into pieces)
pizza sauce for dipping 

I used Honey Butter Bread from Nature's Own.  I would definitely try different kinds of bread when making it again but white bread is what my kiddos eat.

On the inside, I spread a little bit of butter and sprinkled on cheese on each side. Added mini pepperoni, onion, bacon to one side and flipped into a sandwich. 

I found that adding a thin layer of mayo instead of butter to the outside makes the bread cripsy and not soggy.

Brown on each side and serve with pizza sauce for dipping!
