A super quick and easy meal that everyone in your family will love, even the picky ones. My mom used to make this for dinner all the time when I was growing up. My brother and sister still love it as much as me!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • left over spaghetti sauce
  • 4 pieces pepperoni

  2. Put a piece of cheese on the butter side down piece of bread.
  3. Put a generous amount of spaghetti sauce on the piece of cheese.
  4. Add what ever pizza toppings you like-remember, you have to flip this so too many toppings will make this difficult.

Yum! We made this for lunch today and Little Miss (DD) and I both enjoyed it. I made a vegetarian version and left out the pepperoni and added red onions, but Little Miss had the exact recipe. It was quick, easy and versatile to any diet. Thank you Little Cook

Had to comment. When I was growing up, there was a local drive-in restaurant that made my absolute favorite sandwich. It was called a "Pizza Bun", mozzarella and spaghetti/pizza sauce with other ingredients on a sesame seed bun. Served in a basket with fries. Cannot wait to try this version!

This is one of my favourite supper dishes. But I have a Croque Monsieur machine, so I just put them in, they brown on both sides, and no turning.
