How to make a Crispy Pizza Sandwich?
After we have prepared the topping. We are going to make the pizza sandwich. Put two slices of bread on a plate. Each Pizza Sandwich has 2 slices of bread. Start by spreading vegan butter on one side of a slice. This will become the bottom side of the sandwich. Spread pizza sauce on the other side of the slice. You can make your own pizza sauce or buy one at the store. I made mine with canned tomatoes, Italian herbs, and salt and pepper. Place a few tbsp of the topping on top of the tomato sauce.
Put the second slice of bread on top. And cover the bread with vegan butter. Now both the bottom side and the top side of the sandwich will have a layer of butter. Spreading butter on the outside of the sandwich will help to make the bread extra crispy! Repeat the steps for all sandwiches and grill them in a pan or in a sandwich grill. Make sure you grill both sides if you use a pan.
