Friday Fascinations 4 - Everything Linky Party - Pizza Grilled Cheese

This week we are going to do an everything linky party. You can link up anything that you have been working on, thinking about, writing about, whatever. Literally any post of yours that you would like to share with my readers link it up!

I love grilled cheese sandwiches. I have heard of different types of grilled cheese sandwiches but had never tried them until this one. The staple grilled cheese sandwich in our house is with american cheese (My husband calls them cheese toasties). That is what I had always heard of. I remember the first time that I heard of another option was in The Devil Wears Prada. In that movie the girl's boyfriend makes her grilled cheese sandwiches with another type of cheese (I don't remember what kind) and I thought "You can make them with something besides american cheese?". The funny thing is I don't even like american cheese. The only thing I eat it on is grilled cheese. So when I saw this recipe for Pizza Grilled Cheese I thought I should really try that. I love homemade pizza and pizza pudgy pies so how could it go wrong? My favorite pizza toppings are pepperoni and mushroom but you can use whatever toppings you prefer.

Pizza Grilled Cheese

Cheese (I happened to have slices of provolone left over from a different meal, but if I didn't then I would have used shredded parmesan cheese)
Pizza Sauce (if you want, I didn't use any, but I may next time) 
Toppings (any type that you like on regular pizza)

Assemble your ingredients. You will want to have everything close by and prepared because if you leave in the middle of cooking to get something your sandwich will burn. I forgot to put the butter in this picture, but I did use it.
 Butter your bread. Butter all slices before you put any in the pan because like I said it will burn if you don't get it together quickly.
Put the first slice of bread in the pan butter side down. Add some toppings on top. (I was only making 1 sandwich so the little skillet on the stove worked, but if you are making several you can use an electric griddle and make more at once)
Add your cheese and more toppings (I like mine with a lot of cheese and toppings)
Place the other slice of bread on top butter side up (basically you want the butter to be facing out on both sides)
Flip over when the cheese is starting to melt and the bottom side is brown. This is actually a little browner than I like, you can cook to your ideal level of brownness. It is done when both sides are a good level of brown and the cheese is melted.
Verdict: Pure yumminess! This is the best idea since grilled cheese. And very easy. This is a must try!
