Pepperoni Pizza Grilled Cheese- a delicious grilled cheese that is loaded with pepperoni. Enjoy dunking it into pizza sauce!
This grilled cheese is a fun spin on the traditional! The grilled cheese is stuffed with pepperoni and instead of dunking into tomato soup you dunk it it right into pizza sauce. Yum!
I’ve always known that my kids eat a lot, but being home with them this whole summer has really put that into perspective. They don’t ever stop eating!!! Holy smokes!
It feels that every time I turn around they are asking for a snack or when the next meal is going to be. Growing active kids demand good food. Apparently all day too!
They love a variety of foods too, which allows me to be creative with their meals and snacks! Some of their favorite things this summer have been Arnold® Organic Kids White made with Whole Wheat Bread featuring Disney’s Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse for their sandwiches, Thomas’® Pick Me Ups soft-baked oatmeal squares and Thomas’® Mini Croissants for breakfast, and Entenmann’s® Minis Brownie Chocolate Chip Cakes with their afternoon snacks.
In order for them to be satisfied with their meals and for me not to go too crazy, I’ve started to make modified cheeseboard lunches for us. This way everyone is happy. I pull out a bit of everything from the fridge and pantry and arrange it on a big cutting board.
Now, there can be no whining about what I’ve put together: sandwiches, fruit, vegetables, and a few other of their favorite things. Something for everyone in our whole family to enjoy.
Pepperoni Pizza Grilled Cheese
The grilled cheese is a classic sandwich that everyone loves- from kids to adults! It’s simple, tasty, and quick to prepare.
Traditional grilled cheese using American cheese but this uses provolone and mozzarella to embrace the great flavors in Italian dishes and pizza.
When you layer the slices of pepperoni in between the cheese you are adding in salty, robust flavor that takes the grilled cheese to the next level!
Instead of enjoying with tomato soup, dunk the grilled cheese in pizza sauce for a flavorful and hearty lunch.
Starting with the Arnold® sliced bread, I laid out 4 slices of bread to make our sandwiches.
My kids love the NEW Arnold® Organic Kids White made with Whole Wheat Bread because they have Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse on the packaging which is fun for my Disney addicts. But I love serving them delicious bread because it is soft, smooth and slightly sweet that is great for sandwiches and toast. I also really like that it is baked with the finest ingredients and is free from artificial preservatives, colors or flavors, and no added nonsense.
Repeat this process- laying the pepperoni with the slices of cheese. In total you will have 2 slices of provolone and mozzarella, and 12 slices of pepperoni.
On a griddle plan, or in a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Spread the butter out as it melts. Place the assembled grilled cheese sandwiches on the buttered surface to toast the bread and melt the cheese.
I suggest to do this over medium- low heat so that the bread doesn’t brown too quickly before the cheese melts.

Our family loves the Entenmann’s® Minis Brownie Chocolate Chip Cakes! They are a great combination of a Chocolate Chip Cookie and a Brownie in a perfectly sized treat! The Minis Brownie Chocolate Chip Cakes are individually wrapped so they stay fresh and they are perfect for our for your on-the-go lifestyle. They are a great snack or dessert that we can enjoy at the park or at the beach while we watch the sunset.
For breakfast or lunch, my kids love Thomas’® Mini Croissants. The new Mini Croissants are made with mess-free, flakeless dough, which is great for me because I love low stress, no mess things my kids can enjoy. Each 3 piece serving contain 3 grams of protein and just 4 grams of sugar.
Another favorite are the brand new Thomas’® Pick Me Ups soft-baked oatmeal squares. They are soft and chewy you can feel good about eating yourself or giving to your kids.They are made from real, high-quality ingredients, including rolled oats, seeds, cranberries, and chocolate chips The easy to open pouches make them a great anytime, anywhere snack too.
This Pepperoni Pizza Grilled Cheese is going to be a family favorite when you are looking for a great lunch or dinner to get on the table in 15 minutes. Can’t get pizza on the table in that time!
What ingredients are used
- Mozzarella Cheese
- Provolone Cheese
- Pizza Sauce
Top Tip: Don’t burn the grilled cheese!
Burning a grilled cheese is the worst!
Go low and slow to avoid burning the bred before you melt the cheese fully. I never use a temp over medium- low to help with that. Covering it with a lid can also help keep the heat in to melt the cheese quickly as the bread toasts.
- 4 slices of Arnold® Organic Kids White made with Whole Wheat Bread
- 24 slices of pepperoni
- 8 slices of mozzarella cheese
- 8 slices of provolone cheese
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 1 Cup pizza sauce
- Assemble each sandwich by layering 2 slices each of provolone and mozzarella cheese and 12 slices of pepperoni.
- On a griddle plan, or in a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium- low heat. Spread the butter out as it melts. Place the assembled grilled cheese sandwiches on the buttered surface.
- Flip the sandwiches over to toast the other side of the bread and to continue to melt the cheese. As you are flipping the bread, add the remaining butter to the surface for the other side.
- Serve the grilled cheese with pizza sauce. Enjoy!
