Grilled Cheese Pizza Sandwich

2 slices mixed grain bread..
2tablespoons marinara sauce
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese (low moisture, part skim)
1 teaspoon shredded parmesan
Salt and pepper to taste

Spread 1 tablespoon of marinara sauce on each piece of bread. Spread mozzarella cheese evenly, on side with sauce, on first piece of bread. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over mozzarella. Top with second piece of bread, sauce side down. Place in heated pan and cook until cheese inside is melted and outside is golden brown

OR instead of bread and a sandwich presentation use whole wheat small pita's, add some veggies and pop it in the toaster oven for 10 or 15 minutes, until the cheese melts. The pita crisps up just like a thin crust pizza, perfect size for one.
