Recipe by PetsRus

This is called here in The Netherlands a 'pan pizza' now. When I grew up my mother made this for us as a treat and we just called it 'bread from the frying pan'!

Loved it! Great for a 'kinda' light lunch, and flavors I adore! I used baby swiss and skipped the paprika sprinkling. YUM! I will need to remember this the next time DH says 'grilled cheese?' Made in honor and memory of Pets'R'Us!
