Recipe: Best Cheese Pizza


a cheese pizza cut on a plate

This recipe reminds me of my favorite childhood grilled cheeses, ones just oozing with cheese and so comforting. Now as an adult I still enjoy a classic grilled cheese or alternately a cheese pizza, though I usually make them with the addition of tomato and fresh herbs for some added flavor!


This combination is also great to help you use up odds and ends in your fridge. You can use a variety of cheeses for this and don’t be afraid to mix it up! If you have a bit of cheddar and also some brie lying around use them both! Maybe you have some soft goat cheese and also some parmesan and a tiny bit of gouda, that’ll work! The same goes for herbs here. Fresh herbs are a great addition to add some punch to this pizza and you can use anything from chives and basil to rosemary and parsley. Even some green onion would be a great addition.
