Pizza Sandwich


This might possibly be the best sandwich on the face of the earth. No seriously. It’s super delicious and I’ve already gotten exactly two people hooked on them. The hubs, my brother and myself. Make that three people.


I’m also a little proud of myself because I created this masterpiece on my very own. I am not a cook and pretty much only cook because the hubs in hungry. Oh and me to.

Back when we were flying back from Chicago we stopped at this restaurant called Potbelly’s (I think)! We ordered this amazing pizza sub. Ahhh-mazing. So amazing that I thought about that pizza sub for days and wondered how I could recreate this little piece of heaven for myself.

And thus, the pizza sandwich was born.

Here are the ingredients:

  • Pizza sauce (or spaghetti sauce, apparently they are the same according to Wyatt aka the hubs)
  • 2 slices of toasted bread
  • Pepperoni (I use turkey pepperoni)
  • Mozzarella cheese


After your bread is toasted spread about a tablespoon of sauce on each slice of toast. Of the many variations that I tried to get this sandwich perfect, I tried bread that wasn’t toasted. Non-toasted bread=soggy sandwich. Be warned.


Place your pepperoni on top of your sauce.


Place your mozzarella cheese on top of the pepperoni. I use our little toaster oven to bake mine but you could just as easily use your oven, heck maybe even the microwave.


Take your bread slices out of the oven when the cheese has melted.


Then slap those babies together.



And this is usually the place I tell you that this is so NOT healthy for you. Well I can say that no it may not be healthy for you but the calories are pretty low in this little sandwich.

Let me give you a little calorie breakdown:

  • 2 slices of Natures Own Honey Wheat Light Bread, 40 calories a slice = 80 calories for 2 slices
  • Turkey Pepperoni, 17 slices = 70 calories
  • Pizza Sauce, 2 Tbsp = around 15 calories (not for sure exactly but pretty close)
  • Mozzarella Cheese, 1/4 cup = 84 calories

Total = 249

If you love pizza like I do, you will love this sandwich. You can thank me later.
