{Recipe} Pizza Panini #MakeThatSandwich

Pizza Panini

Mezzetta was kind enough to send me a whole box of goodies. It was the perfect chance to work on another #MakeThatSandwich entry. (I want to win!)

I’m a huge fan of pizza and lived on homemade pizza pockets with my illegal sandwich maker in college. (High heat appliances were a huge no-no!) Now that I’m vegetarian (*sniff* I’ll miss you, pepperoni!) I’m working to perfect a new hot pizza sandwich that’s every bit as good.

Mezzetta has me covered, though. I just layered country white bread with their marinara sauce (they have pizza sauce, too-the marinara was just what I happened to have) with sliced olives, red peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms and mozzarella. A few minutes in the panini press and you have an ooey, gooey sandwich that will absolutely need a fork! (And will satisfy any pizza craving!)

Have you entered the #MakeThatSandwich contest yet? Hurry-time’s running out!
