  1. I’m always trying new recipes from the database. Some I’m sure will become the new family favorite. While they like almost all that I’ve tried, and really like some of them…none can come close to the reaction I get when the answer to “what’s for dinner” is “pizza grilled cheese.” Cracks me up. So simple but so loved. The true family favorite since day 1.

  2. Tried tonight. Think this will replace our regular grill cheese. I didn’t have the uncured pepperoni so I left mine with just cheese. Still good. We used the all purpose pizza/pasta sauce….which we also love!

  3. This has become a go to lunch for me. So simple & good. I still don’t use the pepperoni as I haven’t found any uncured as of yet, but the mozzarella cheese makes it so good along with the dipping sauce.
