Recipe: Margherita Pizza Grilled Cheese

After going to New York City a few years ago, a classic brick oven Margherita Pizza became my favorite thing in the world. We went here and absolutely loved it!

Unfortunately, I do not have a brick oven in my house – but how cool would that be? I don’t typically try to make Margherita Pizza at home, I save that for going out! However, I have been craving it and decided to make it grilled cheese style.

Super Simple Ingredients

  • Tomato Paste (or crushed tomatoes, if you don’t mind the texture)
  • Bay Leaves
  • Bread (I used Artisan Asiago Bread from Albertson’s)
  • Fresh Mozzarella (Get from the deli or they have a packaged, pre-sliced option)

How To Put Together:

  • Cut up bread to desired thickness. I preferred slices that were a little thicker but it was a little difficult to bite at first. Thinner slices will be much easier to eat, especially for children.
  • On two pieces of bread, layer on tomato paste. Since I had thicker slices of bread, I used quite a bit. I like my pizza to be saucy anyways – I used around 4 tablespoons for just my sandwich.
  • Place 3 bay leaves on one side and 2-3 slices of mozzarella on the other.
  • I broiled mine on low for 5-6 minutes. You can also heat it up in a pan like this to get beautiful grill marks on the bottom. If so, cook on low-medium heat for 10-15 minutes until the cheese has melted.
  • Let cool until it’s at a safe temperature to eat and tada, you have a very impressive grilled cheese sandwich!
