Katie Lee’s Parm-tastic Pizza Grilled Cheese

This parm-tastic Pizza Grilled Cheese on Artesano Bread from Chef Katie Lee is cheesy perfection.

11-20 Minutes


  • 4 slices Sara Lee® Artesano™ Bakery Bread
  • ½ stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup marinara sauce
  • 4 slices Provolone cheese
  • 12 slices pepperoni
  • ¼ cup chopped banana peppers
  • ¼ cup caramelized onions
  • 4 slices Mozzarella cheese


  1. 1. Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Spread the butter on one side of each slice of bread. Sprinkle with the grated Parmesan, lightly pressing the Parmesan into the butter so it sticks.
  2. 2. Lay 2 slices of the bread buttered/cheese-side down in the skillet and spread 1 tablespoon of the marinara on each. Top each with 2 slices of Provolone, followed by 6 slices of pepperoni, half of the banana peppers and caramelized onions and 2 slices of Mozzarella. Spread the remaining marinara on the unbuttered side of the remaining 2 slices of bread, then place one slice of bread on top of each sandwich with the buttered/cheese side facing up.
  3. 3. Cook until golden brown, approximately 3-4 minutes per side. Slice and serve.
