Grilled Cheese Pizza Sandwich

March 28th, 2010 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

Tim Babb’s March Blog Madness: Day 28

Today I’m providing step by step instructions (with pictures) on how to make the grilled cheese pizza sandwich I described on episode 92.

What is required:
*2 Slices of bread
*”I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter” spray
*Shredded mozzarella cheese
*Peperoni slices
*Pizza sauce

Step 1: Grab two (2) slices of bread

Step 2: Lie them in a small skillet and spray both sides with “I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter”

Step 3: Remove the top slice and sprinkle some cheese on the bottom slice of bread. (enough to cover the slice)

Step 4: Place slices of pepperoni on top of the cheese

Step 5: Sprinkle some more cheese on top of the pepperoni

Step 6: Replace the top slice

Step 7: Set the heat to “medium”

Step 8: Poor a small amount of pizza sauce into a dipping bowl. Optional: Microwave bowl for 20 seconds

Step 9: Flip the sandwich over when the bottom side gets golden brown (approximately 5 minutes)

Step 10: Remove sandwich from skillet when bottom slice turns golden brown (will happen MUCH faster than first slice)

Step 11: Slice the sandwich diagonally down the center and enjoy!

    i just made one without peperoni was FUCKING AMAZING

    @ Ian: Without the pepperoni, it’s really just a grilled cheese. Even if you dip it in pizza sauce, I think adding pizza toppings is what truly elevates Tim’s creation to something different and special. Tim?

    Looks great – must try.

    But for Christ’s sake, why ICBINB spray? Get some real fucking butterin ther. None of the rest of it is healthy, and for that matter fake butter spray isn’t healthy either. Real butter = good fats = better for you than fake food. Soybean oil does not equal healthy!

    Melanie, how is butter fat “good fat”? Saturated fats are really not on my list of top fats.* As for soybean oil, I think that the main concern is when it’s hydrogenated and trans fats are produced. Given that Tim’s talking about the spray form, which would need to be a liquid, I don’t think that the oil would be hydrogenated at all in this case, hence no trans fats**. Plus the spray means that you only use a tiny amount.

    Am I being too nerdy here?

    *Yes, of course I have a list of top fats, doesn’t everyone?
    **Just checked, and the webiste supports this.

    To add to the debate: I often just use extra virgin olive oil (it can be purchased in similar spray containers) instead of butter at all when it comes to grilling bread in any way. Healthy fats, and don’t have to worry about the shit that is in processed butter alternatives. Organic EVOO is a gift from God.
    Tim, that sammich looks delicious. I wonder how it tastes with soy pepperoni…hmm…

  7. Melanie (TANcast's #1 MILF/GILF) Says:

    @Matt: Just saying here – in very general terms, the more natural a product is, and the less processed it is, the better, IMO. I think it’s time, for a multitutde of reasons, to go back to a more natural way of eating – for health, the environment, etc.

    I also checked the site for ICBINB spray before posting, and saw that it has no trans fats, etc. In fact, it has almost nothing at all. But the mono-cropping of soy (and corn for that matter) is no bueno, and with the huge amounts of fossil fuels that go into growing it, processing it, and transporting it, we may as well be eating petroleum.

    I’m in no way a health/environment fanatic – really. I’m trying to make many small changes in my own life, and not a bunch of earth-shaking/saving ones. It’s just that trying to avoid soy is one of them, so this post ‘inspired” me.

    As for lists of top fats, of course everyone has one, and I see a HIgh Five in TANcast’s future (ok, I don’t really, but it’d be great). My High Five Fats for cooking (in no particular order): duck fat, lard, EVOO, butter, and bacon fat.

    Dude haven’t you heard of plain old good cheese pizza?

    Anyways, before I found your site, I just invented my version of a pizza grilled cheese (which I took the last bit of two seconds ago) which weirdly enough uses the exact same sauce you did (and I’m way the heck over in Taiwan too). Mine involves using both American (my standard grilled cheese cheese) and mozzarella (smaller amounts of both of course) and spreading the sauce directly into the sandwich between the mozzarella and the bread. VERY tasty.

    I have always spread the butter/butter substitute directly onto the top piece of bread and slapped the sandwich into the hot pan butter side down. It gives the top slice of bread that wonderful buttered toast taste.
