This quick five-ingredient entrée transforms a favorite pizza combo into a melty grilled sandwich. To thinly slice fresh mozzarella with ease, freeze the cheese for about 30 minutes before cutting.
Serves 4 (serving size: 1 sandwich)
1. Spread 1 tablespoon marinara over 1 side of each of 4 bread slices. Top evenly with cheese and tomatoes. Sprinkle tomatoes evenly with pepper and salt. Top tomatoes with basil and remaining bread slices. Lightly coat sandwiches with cooking spray.
2. Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add sandwiches to pan; cook 2 1/2 minutes or until browned. Brush tops evenly with remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil. Turn sandwiches over; cook 2 minutes or until browned. Serve immediately.
