Supreme Pizza Grilled Cheese

It's starting to finally get cold here in New York. In fact we received a light dusting a few days ago. It was our first snow for the winter here. And now there is a storm heading our way that will be dumping a foot or more of snow. Time to stay in and make a favorite comfort food....grilled cheese. But not just any grilled cheese. This recipe I dedicate to all you pizza lovers out there.

This recipe makes 2 sandwiches.

-4 slices of bread of your choice.
-2 slices of mozzarella cheese
-2 slices of provolone cheese
-2 tablespoons of your favorite pizza sauce
-8 to 10 slices of pepperoni ( 8 if using large slices and 10 if using smaller slices. )
-4 slices of this cut deli ham
-minced onions, sliced olives, grated parmesan cheese, fresh basil, sliced mushrooms.

You can use whatever you want for your sandwich. Think of it like pizza. Use your favorite toppings.

Assembling one sandwich:

Spread some softened butter on one side of one slice of bread. Take the other bread and place on the bottom of your work place. Add 1 of cheese, then sauce and continue with your other toppings until you end up with with the last slice of cheese. ( making that 2 slices of cheese per sandwich )
Place the buttered side up to top it off then place in a heated skillet buttered side down. Now spread butter on the top slice of bread. Cook till golden brown then flip and do the same on the other side.
Serve with tomato basil soup and you are all set to stay in and keep warm.
