Try this sandwich version of the kid favorite

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4 small Italian rolls or 1 loaf French bread cut into four 3-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup bottled pizza sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella or a blend (such as Kraft 5-Cheese Italian)
  • 1 cup frozen chopped broccoli, thawed, or 16 slices pepperoni
  • 4 tsp grated parmesan cheese

Let’s get started

  1. Preheat indoor grill or grill pan. Split rolls in half. Spoon 2 tablespoons pizza sauce on half of each roll. Top each with 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella, 1/4 cup broccoli or 4 slices pepperoni, and 1 teaspoon parmesan cheese. Top with remaining bread.
  2. Place sandwiches on grill, cover, and cook them for 4 minutes, until cheese is melted. Cool slightly and slice on diagonal. Serve with sliced yellow or red peppers.
  3. You can also cook panini on a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Place a smaller skillet on top of sandwich to flatten slightly. Cook 2 minutes, carefully flip, flatten, and cook 2 more minutes.
