Easy Pizza Panini’s

I enjoy making this delicious sandwich on busy evenings. It is quick, easy, and pleases the entire family. Add a soup or salad and you have a great meal!
1 loaf focaccia bread (you can find these at your grocers bakery, but I purchased this Asiago bread at Panera-I asked them to slice it in half for me), provolone cheese, pepperoni, diced fire roasted tomatoes. 
Open bread and add the cheese and pepperoni 
On other half add roasted tomatoes 
Place on heated Panini press (if you do not have a press you can make this like you would a grilled cheese on the stove)
Press and cook until top is lightly browned and cheese is melted
Slice like you would a pizza and serve!(I made tomato basil soup with oyster crackers along side)

    That looks really good. Sounds nice on a cold day with some soup! Seems like something that would be popular with the kiddos, too. I'm going to have to try it. 🙂

  3. That looks yummy! And the possibility of fillings is endless!! I don't have a panini press but I think a huge cast iron skillet would work well! 🙂

  4. Oh now I can not wait to try this!! Yummy is all I got to say about that!!

    Just wondering if your panini press is only a press or if yours is the one that is also a griddle? Saw those at Kohls and wondered if they worked well. My griddle is getting old and will need to be replaced and, with a small space, anytime an appliance can double up – is good! 🙂

    One comment on making paninis: they work better with sliced loaf bread, such as the Old World Rounds they sell at Marcs. Using your bread above with the crust covering the whole surface, you are merely browning the crust again!

    Also, do not buy a panini press if you have a George Foreman grill or a quesdilla maker. They all work the same way: lotsa heat on a small area!
