  • 8 slices Sara Lee Artesano Potato Bakery Bread
  • 4 oz sliced Havarti Cheese
  • 4 oz shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 package sliced pepperoni
  • 1 can pizza sauce
  • 1 package Irish butter


  • Melt butter on a large and flat frying pan or griddle on medium low heat.
  • Spread the butter around to coat the bottom of the pan. Melt more if necessary. Place 4 slices of bread or as many as it will fit on your pan. Grill it for 2-3 minutes or until medium golden color is achieved.
  • Stack the bread to one side of the pan while you add more butter and melt it. Place ungrilled side down to toast. Proceed to the next step immediately.
  • Add the mozzarella cheese to all slices of the bread in the pan. Add a spoonfull of pizza sauce and several slices of pepperoni to half of the bread in the pan and 1 slice of havarti to the remaining slices of bread.
  • Cover the pan and reduce heat to low setting. Cook until the cheese is melted 5-7 minutes, and make sure that the steam can vent and doesn't fall in the pan.
  • Join the slices of bread that only have cheese to the ones that have pepperoni and push it gently down to create a bond. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
