Pizza Sandwich

Sometimes despite my best efforts, I have some pizza sauce and toppings leftover when pizza is made. They are not enough for a whole pizza but can be made into small sandwiches. These yummy sandwiches were the result of one such evening. They are tasty with tangy sauce, fresh vegetables and stringy cheese. They can be packed into tiffins and or eaten as a snack. I made these when I had onions, tomato and green pepper pizza but this would taste good with any toppings you may have.

Ingredients:

4 slices bread
4 tablespoons pizza sauce
1/2 cup chopped or 4-6 thin slices green peppers (capsicum)
1/2 cup chopped or 2-4 thin slices onions
4-6 slices tomatoes
2-3 tablespoons shredded mozzarella
Butter
Apply a light layer of butter on the bread. This helps the bread not turn soggy with the pizza sauce. Next spread 1 tablespoon the pizza sauce on it. Top with half the onion, peppers, tomatoes and cheese. Cover with another slice of bread layered with butter and pizza sauce. Make the other sandwich the same way. Apply a little butter on the outer sides the bread slices. This will help the bread turn golden but it is optional.  Place in a sandwich toaster or a panini maker and grill till its crispy and golden. Enjoy with tea or as a lunch with chips!

Filling variations:
Jalapeno and pineapple
Olive, artichoke hearts and mushroom
Tomato, roasted garlic and spinach
