My kids love a classic grilled cheese, and sometimes it’s really nice to be able to serve quick and easy sandwiches for supper. These Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are the perfect answer to my busiest (or laziest) evenings. The kids love the fact that I have essentially combined two of their favorite foods, while Keith loves the fact that these sandwiches are hearty, flavorful, and stuffed with meats and cheeses!

Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Inside these beauties is a melty Italian cheese spread made up of Parmesan, mozzarella, butter, garlic, and Italian seasoning. How could you go wrong with any of that?! I’ve added some pepperoni, turkey, and bacon to really finish it off! Because everything’s better with bacon.
