If you love double-crust white pizza, this sandwich will satisfy your craving without making a whole pizza or ordering out. Great served with a side of marinara sauce for dipping and wonderful with a hearty salad.

LOVED this sandwich! Great combo of flavors, and the onions were a great addition. I did just eyeball the rosemary b/c I didn't want to use the whole tsp., as I thought it would be too much for me. No Italian bread in the house, so I used a butter bread that I had on hand. Really, really great....a definite keeper~YUM, YUM, YUM!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More

Good but really just a 3-cheese grilled cheese sandwich. Perhaps if it had some pepperoni mixed in? Read More

I made this tonight and it was a hit with my son! I had to make a slight alteration as I didn't use American cheese. I replaced it with Vermont white cheddar. It came out very creamy and delicious. For the second sandwich I added some sautéed mushrooms. That was a wonderful addition. Grilled cheese fun!! Read More

Great sandwich to make for a quick meal or easy casual appetizer. Adjust seasonings and cheeses to suit you. I agree with a previous reviewer about the rosemary -- too much for our liking so I scaled it down a bit. I also used white cheddar in place of American. Easy recipe to tweak according to your own tastes. Love the onions and the idea to add mushrooms. You could also add bits of chopped pepperoni crumbles of Italian sausage or other "pizza" toppings. Let the sandwiches cool for a couple minutes so the cheese doesn't run out everywhere. I quartered them. Serve with marinara sauce. A big hit! Thanks for submitting the recipe. Great idea! Read More

Delicious grilled cheese that's always a hit! I made these classic sandwiches for a group of women at my house yesterday and then another group at a friend's house today because I had leftover ingredients. I prettymuch followed the recipe the first time except used chopped dried onions (some friends will eat these but don't like fresh onion.) Today I used my Italian seasoning and sprinkled it on the butter I spread on the bread slices; then sprinkled the onion and garlic on the grilling bread slices before putting together to flip over. And I think I'll look for sliced mozzarella next time AND remember to put out the marinara which I forgot both times! Read More

Used what I had on hand, buttered the bread with butter, garlic powder, oregano mix. Use just mozzarella, provolone, and Havarti slices. 6 kids ate 15 sandwiches, hubby ate 3! Definitely will be making again and again! Thanks Read More
