These savory pesto grilled cheese sandwiches with tomatoes and pepperoni are simple to make and incredibly satisfying!
I’m so excited to share this recipe with you because it’s probably my favorite sandwich EVER!! Toasted bread is full of pesto, mozzarella, tomatoes, and pepperoni to make a cheese, flavorful sandwich in no time at all.
I mentioned on Facebook the other day that I had to eat dessert for lunch so I could take photos in the daylight. Today, I had to make one of these pesto pizza grilled cheese sandwiches for myself for lunch for the same reason. Then, I made them again for dinner. Even when I was on my second sandwich for the day, I was sad when the last bite was over.
These savory sandwiches are so, so simple to put together, but they are flavorful, cheesy, and wonderful. Seriously. I chose to bake them in the oven instead of cooking them in a pan like a traditional grilled cheese sandwich. Since they are already full of pesto, cheese, and pepperoni, I didn’t want to cook them in oil or butter. They toast up beautifully, and baking them makes them an even easier dinner idea since there’s not much cleanup!

2. For each sandwich, spread pesto on both slices of bread, and place a slice of cheese on each slice. Evenly arrange pepperoni over the cheese on one slice of bread and tomato slices over the other.
