This Hawaiian Pizza Grilled Cheese Recipe is everything I want in a perfect grilled cheese.

Hawaiian Pizza Grilled Cheese is my favorite twist on an absolute classic recipe. Growing up, my Grandma would always make me the best grilled cheese with ham. I can still taste it and envision her slicing it down the middle; the cheese oozing out from every side possible.

As an adult, I’m absolutely obsessed with  the flavors of Hawaiian Pizza…lots of cheese, ham, and pineapple. Hawaiian Pizza Grilled Cheese?? Heaven!

Those flavors also just so happen to make an amazing grilled cheese. I’m here to tell you how to make the BEST Grilled Cheese EVER today…and if  you want to add in Hawaiian Pizza toppings…I say DO IT!

Hawaiian Pizza Grilled Cheese is the ULTIMATE Grilled Cheese Recipe to celebrate National Grilled Cheese Month!

April is GRILLED CHEESE MONTH and that gives me an excuse to eat one of these Hawaiian Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwiches all day every day (Not that I needed an excuse). I’ve been loving Sara Lee® Artesano™ Bread each and every time I make Grilled Cheese lately. It’s SO good and is such a delicious bakery style bread at a better price point.

Sara Lee Artesano is thick sliced bread that comes in two flavors, Original and Golden Wheat. Both are thick sliced (perfect) bread with No artificial colors or preservatives and NO high fructose corn syrup! I love feeding Henry this bread. It’s the perfect Grilled Cheese Bread!

To celebrate National Grilled Cheese month, Sara Lee Bread is hosting a “Grilled Cheese Worth Celebrating Photo Sweepstakes”. You could win $1,000 OR a year supply of Sara Lee Artesano Bread.

Tips for making the PERFECT Grilled Cheese Sandwich:

Making the BEST Grilled Cheese is quite the art form. I have burned many a grilled cheese attempt in my lifetime. I did a lot of research for this recipe (hello, GRILLED CHEESE MONTH) and here are the best tips I have for you. You too can make a delicious and perfect Grilled Cheese Sandwich each and every time!

  • Always use REAL mayonnaise on the outside of your bread. This is one time that using homemade is not best! Just trust me.
  • Use a nonstick skillet or griddle over medium/low heat. You have to allow the cheese time to melt while at the same time not burning the bread. A tricky feat! You can do it!
  • I always add 1/2 tablespoon of butter onto my skillet per side of bread. Once it melts over medium/low heat, I know it’s time to add my bread/sandwich. You’ll hear a slight sizzle while the bread toasts, but remember we aren’t on a high heat. I let my grilled cheese cook for 3-4 minutes per side and I have found that’s just about perfect.
  • Get creative with ingredients! This Hawaiian Pizza Grilled Cheese is an example of how fun add-ons can take a classic from good to great! Another great way to punch up the flavor is to use jellies or spreads like mustard, jam, and more to create an intense and unique flavor.
  • ALWAYS serve with tomato soup. :)
