Innovative Recipe for 'Grilled Cheese Pepperoni Pizza' Is Honestly As Good As It Gets

We're thankful we can’t gain weight from watching a video. We've watched this one several times now, and we just can’t get enough of that cheesy crunch! TikTok content creator @thejoshelkin gives us his recipe for grilled cheese pepperoni pizza, and we may have just died and gone to heaven.

Once you feast your eyes upon this masterpiece, you’ll be hooked!

This leaves us feeling all sorts of delighted! For this dreamy creation, he uses a fresh, bakery-round bread. He trims the loaf, butters one side of each piece, and begins to make the grilled cheese using both cheddar and Munster slices. Once both sides have a golden crisp, he adds a few drops of water to the pan and then the lid to help get that cheese all nice and melted. When the grilled cheese portion of the sandwich is done, he tops it was sauce, low-moisture mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni slices. It goes off to bake in the oven, and when it comes out, you have a grilled cheese + pepperoni pizza in one sinful slice. Holy pepperoni, we must have this!

This recipe got the audience thinking. Viewer @Preston Harris commented, “Bacon would be my substitute for pepperoni and provolone for the Muenster. Yours looked amazing, and I'm definitely gonna try it. Thanks for the idea.” Hmm, that sounds great, too! Viewer @stillisstillmovingtome commented, “My mind is blown. And I want to put mac and cheese on it as well (including pepperoni). thanks for sharing this inspiration.” Oy, our cholesterol went up just thinking about it, but it sure sounds good!

We didn't know we wanted a grilled cheese like this, but now that we’ve seen it, we won’t be happy until it’s in our belly!
