Paninis make a boring sandwich a gourmet meal. Pizza is a classic dish and can also sometimes become routine. A grilled pizza panini is a creative way to jazz up the boring sandwich and predictable pizza. Great to heat up as leftovers also for lunch the next day!

  • Preheat a panini press according to manufacturer's instructions.

  • Spread an even layer of tomato sauce onto the cut sides of each ciabatta roll. Sprinkle equal amounts of garlic and oregano onto each roll. Place 2 salami slices side by side onto each roll; top each with 2 slices ham. Divide red onion, mushrooms, red pepper, olives, and basil between the 4 sandwiches and spread evenly atop the meats. Finish by topping with provolone cheese and sandwiching roll halves around the fillings.

  • Cook sandwiches on preheated panini press until there are dark brown grill marks on the bread, the cheese is melted, and the center is warm, about 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Cooking time will vary depending on size of panini grill.

I made it without olives and it was excellent. I can imagine olive will only improve the flavor. I liked the crunch of the crust better than many pizza crust. Read More

This was a very tasty panini! Next time I may add a bit more tomato sauce as I enjoyed dipping it on the side. I do not have a panini maker so I used a griddle and smashed it down with a cast iron skillet. It worked perfectly. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Read More
