Dive into the ultimate comfort food with our Pepperoni Pizza Grilled Cheese recipe. Quick, delicious, and perfect for any meal!




  • 4 slices of your favorite bread
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 8 slices of pepperoni
  • 2 tablespoons marinara sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened



  1. Spread the softened butter evenly on one side of each bread slice.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat and place two slices of bread, buttered side down, onto the skillet.

How to Prepare

  1. On each slice in the skillet, evenly distribute 1/2 cup of mozzarella.
  2. Place 4 slices of pepperoni on top of the mozzarella.
  3. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of marinara sauce over the pepperoni.
  4. Cover with another bread slice, buttered side up, to form a sandwich.
  5. Grill the sandwiches for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until the bread is golden brown and the cheese has thoroughly melted.


  • Butter Alternatives: For a lighter version, you can use olive oil or a low-calorie cooking spray on the bread instead of butter.
  • Cheese Varieties: Experiment with different types of cheese such as cheddar for a sharper flavor, or a smoked provolone for a deeper taste.
  • Additional Toppings: Feel free to add additional toppings such as onions, bell peppers, or mushrooms to mimic your favorite pizza.
  • Cooking Tip: For an extra crispy texture, press down on the sandwich with a spatula while grilling.
