Pizza Panini

Super FAST and EASY recipe coming at you today....and of course, TOTALLY TASTY!
In case you didn't know...panini is just fancy-talk for a grilled-cheese like sandwich.  I do not have a panini press, so I put these on my grill pan and topped it with a cookie sheet, weighted with a big-ol butcher block cutting board on top of that.  Cause I'ma fancy that way, lol!
Everyone loved I was the "coolest Mom EVER" loved them. I threw a salad on the plate and I was done-daddy-done.

Pizza Panini
Recipe Source:  Life as a Lofthouse via Cassie Craves
  • 1 box frozen Texas Toast Garlic bread
  • Pizza Sauce (jarred or homemade)
  • Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Pepperoni and/or other favorite pizza toppings

Place the frozen garlic bread on a baking sheet lined with tinfoil, and bake according to package directions, making sure they don't get too crispy.
Meanwhile, heat your panini press, grill pan, or skillet to medium-high heat.
Take one piece of cooked garlic bread and top with favorite pizza toppings. (Sauce, Cheese, etc)
Top with another piece of garlic bread and place on panini press. Close lid and cook until cheese melts and sandwich is hot. About 2-3 minutes.
Repeat with remaining pieces of garlic bread and pizza toppings. You can serve extra dipping sauce on the side if you would like.  Serve immediately!

  1. Yeah, I use a ghetto panini press too! No need to spend $100! Love the sandwich!

  2. What a GREAT recipe! Would you come over to Cast Party Wednesday and share it with us?
    I hope to see you there!

  3. Yummy! I don't even have a grill pan (can you say wayyy behind the times?), but I think I might just put them in a pan :)

  4. You inspired me to pull out my panini maker, which my father gave us several years ago. So we've been enjoying this recipe, other panini, and quesadillas all weekend!
