  • 1 can (11 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Thin Crust Pizza Crust
  • 10 slices Muenster, Swiss, Colby Jack cheese, and/or goat cheese (see flavor combos below to choose your cheese to match your flavor)
  • Your favorite grilled cheese add-ons: spinach, ham slices, bacon, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, etc.
  • butter-flavored nonstick cooking spray


  • 1
    Preheat oven to 425°F. Unroll Pillsbury™ Thin Pizza Crust on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 6-8 minutes, just until the crust is set. It should be just barely light-golden brown around the edges. (Note alternative baking directions in Step 5.)
  • 2
    Use a pizza cutter to slice the cooked crust into 10 small, equal-sized squares. Preheat your outdoor grill to the lowest heat setting possible.
  • 3
    Top 5 of the pizza crust squares with your favorite grilled cheese combos: for CLASSIC GRILLED CHEESE, place two slices of Muenster or Colby Jack cheese. For HAM AND TOMATO GRILLED CHEESE, top your slices with two slices of Swiss cheese, two slices of ham, and two slices of tomatoes. For MEDITERRANEAN GRILLED CHEESE, top your slices with a schmear of goat cheese, spinach, a slice of roasted red pepper, and a slice of Muenster cheese.

    Place a second slice of pizza crust on top of the cheese sandwiches. Spray with butter-flavored nonstick baking spray. Place directly on preheated grill, then close the lid of the grill and allow sandwiches to cook for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip and cook on the other side until golden brown. Serve immediately.

    Grab a tube of Pillsbury Thin Pizza Crust. This is how it starts, people. Prepare for it. It gets better and better from here.

    Unroll the pizza dough onto a piece of parchment paper. Bake it in a hot oven for 6-8 minutes, then slice the cooked dough into 10 even-sized pieces. (Hey, if you want, you can even grill the dough -- just cut it first, place the pieces on low heat until grill marks form, and then keep going!)

    Place a second piece of pizza crust on top of each sandwich, spray the top and bottom of each sandwich with nonstick cooking spray, then toss onto a hot grill turned to the lowest heat setting possible. Cover that grill and let your sandwiches cook for 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip and grill on the other side for 2-4 minutes, or until golden brown.
