Pizza Lover’s Grilled Cheese

Let Us Know What You Think




Combine butter, oil and salt in a small bowl.

Combine Mezzetta® Regional Recipes Pizza Sauce and basil in a separate small bowl.

Heat 1 large non-stick skillet over medium heat. For each sandwich, spoon an equal amount of sauce mixture over the center of each slice; spread evenly. Place mozzarella slices over sauce mixture; arrange Mezzetta® Julienne Cut Sun-Ripened Dried Tomatoes and Mezzetta® Pitted Greek Kalamata Olives over each layer of mozzarella. Sprinkle each with Parmesan; top with a slice of fontina and the top slice of bread. Spread butter mixture on outside of sandwich.

Cook 2 to 3 minutes; or until bottoms are golden, pressing each sandwich firmly with a spatula. Turn sandwiches and press each again with a spatula. Continue to cook until bottoms are golden and cheeses are melted. Also can be cooked in a panini press.


Chef's Notes: For a comforting meal, serve with tomato soup.
