I grew up in a family that LOVED grilled cheese sandwiches. I know that can be said of many households, but we really got our grilled cheese on. We would normally use cheddar cheese and homemade wheat bread (since it was LONG before we had ever even heard of celiac disease or gluten.) I wasn’t a fan of tomato soup unless it was in a christmas mug for me to dip my grilled cheese sandwich in.
My sister loves grilled cheese sandwiches so much that she served them with little cups of tomato soup at her wedding reception!
Speaking of grilled cheese, how you do you cut your sandwiches? I have always liked to cut my sandwich on the diagonal into 2 triangles.
I like tomato soup a lot more now, as an adult, but I feel like it isn’t necessary for this gluten free pepperoni pizza grilled cheese sandwich. Each sandwich has 2 slices of mozzarella or provolone (my favorite pizza cheeses,) a thick layer of sliced pepperoni, and a little pizza sauce to complete the gluten free pepperoni pizza grilled cheese sandwich experience. Also, and I think this is my favorite part… garlic butter.
Normally when I make a grilled cheese sandwich I spread the bread with a little mayo (like I did when I made Gluten Free Reuben Sandwich Dippers.) I you were to order a grilled cheese sandwich at a diner (if you know a celiac safe diner, let me know!) they would use mayo. It is a natural choice because you don’t have to wait for it to be at the perfect spreading temperature to avoid tearing your precious gluten free bread.
But pizza with mayo? I wasn’t feeling it. And the garlic butter… OH MAN!
Definitely the best choice! It really takes this gluten free pepperoni pizza grilled cheese sandwich to the next level! It takes just a few extra minutes to make. I just softened some butter in my microwave and then mixed in a little minced garlic. That easy! The garlic butter really makes the gluten free pepperoni pizza grilled cheese sandwich taste like a little slice of Italy.
Who doesn’t love the classic flavor of pepperoni pizza? I know that it isn’t everyone’s thing, there is always someone who is an exception, but pepperoni pizza is usually a safe pizza topping to order. MOST people love it! Likewise, I think that most people would love this gluten free pepperoni pizza grilled cheese sandwich.
I think next time I might add a little fresh basil to my gluten free pepperoni pizza grilled cheese sandwich. Make it more of a margherita pepperoni pizza grilled cheese.
What would you add to your gluten free pizza grilled cheese sandwich to make it perfect?
