Grilled Cheese Sandwich + Spaghetti Sauce = Pizza

For some inexplicable reason, my wife gets very dubious whenever I’m in the kitchen. But the other day, I was in there and had a culinary epiphany: a pizza is a pastry product topped with cheese and tomato sauce.

A pastry product with cheese? Sounds like grilled cheese sandwich to me. And tomato sauce? I’ve got a whole jarful of spaghetti sauce where tomato is the first ingredient. Therefore, grilled cheese sandwich + spaghetti sauce = pizza.

Of course, you can’t just put spaghetti sauce in a sandwich. It’d be way too messy. (I found that out the hard way…) You have to put the spaghetti sauce in a bowl and use it like a dipping sauce. It also helps to cut the grilled cheese sandwich into sticks for easier dipping, too.

    I did this once prior to getting married, on one of those lonely single hungry nights where you don’t have much in the kitchen, lol. I had an epiphany to make a grilled cheese with provolone and dip it in some out of the jar sauce warmed up of course. I had it again after I got married and my wife thought it was weird and it wasn’t anywhere near as tasty as I rememberd on that night…

    It’s all relative. Ramen made with actual boiling water (instead of eating it straight out of the package) tastes fantastic when you’re a starving college student…
