Just What the Italians Intended: A Grilled Cheese Pizza


You have to imagine that, when the original concept of the pizza was dreamed up many, many years ago, with the finest dough base, the tastiest sauce and the freshest toppings, the last thing that the good people of Italy had in mind was the grilled cheese pizza.

Having said that, one would have to doubt that the Mexicans could have ever imagined such a thing as chili cheese fries. But hey, this is America. We will take your food and twist it inside and out until it is unrecognizable.

And so it is that Pizza Inn (NASDAQ: PZZI) has conspired to devise the grilled cheese pizza. We are holding judgment until we get to try one, and it can't be any worse than the chocolate and marshmallow pizza that was in the stores back when the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were all the rage.

Wait a minute though – PZZI has also created the buttered cinnasugar pizza. Mama Mia.

According to Pizza Inn spokesman Charles Morrison, “Our Pizza Inn team members know our customers so well. The Grilled Cheese Pizza and Buttered Cinnasugar Pizzert are proof, once again, that great ideas and delicious recipes can come from the field. Thanks to another incredible Culinary Challenge at Pizza Inn, we look forward to serving these new additions across our network."

Apparently, the grilled cheese pizza was born out of a desire to create a pizza that tastes like something mom used to make. Expect the pot roast pizza, the pigs in blankets pizza and the leftovers pizza to be available soon.
