Chef Ben Rampt, who specializes in grilled cheese sandwich in his food truck, shows ABC Action News weekend morning anchors Lauren St. Germain and Jasmine Styles and viewers how to make a Pizza Grilled Cheese sandwich.

He has included the recipe if you would like to try it at home.

arm-tastic Pizza Grilled Cheese
Serving Size - 2
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
4 slices White Sara Lee Artesano Bread
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1/4 cup marinara sauce 
4 slices provolone cheese (from the deli)
12 slices pepperoni 
1/4 cup chopped banana peppers
1/4 cup caramelized onions 
4 slices mozzarella (from the deli)
Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat.
Spread the butter on one side of each slice of bread and sprinkle with the grated Parmesan, lightly pressing the Parmesan into the butter so it sticks. Lay 2 slices of the bread buttered/cheese-side down in the skillet and then spread 1 tablespoon of the marinara on each. Then 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.
Cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Slice and serve.
