Yesterday was a busy day for me so I was in need of a quick dinner solution. Luckily I had all the ingredients needed to make us some hot, crispy pizza paninis.
All you need for this simple panini sandwich is some bread, sauce, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni. Try not to leave the sauce on the bread too long before cooking it. The bread gets a little soggy if you leave it sit too long to absorb into the soft bread.
The possibilities for this panini are endless. Treat it like a pizza and add any desired topping you wish. This makes a great snack late at night too!
fresh loaf of Italian or Sourdough bread
your favorite sauce
sliced deli pepperoni
1. Preheat your panini machine or a plain griddle pan. Slice the fresh bread and spread sauce on one side of each piece.
2. Slice fresh mozzarella and place two slices on each sandwich.
3. Add the desired amount of pepperoni to each sandwich.
4. Cook your sandwich on your panini machine until cheese starts melting and the bread gets browned and crispy.
