Hi, I’ve just made the easiest, tastiest, lunch ever: Perfect Panini Pizza. It’s so simple, yet so delicious.
Our daughter is at home, working hard on study leave. It’s exam time people! That means lots of study and lots of brain fuel – FOOD!! So in an effort to make lunchtime fun I decided to turn 2 panini rolls (ciabatta rolls would work fine too) into something other than a sandwich! Not that sandwiches aren’t good, but I wanted to change things up a bit and treat Star to a fabulous lunch. Perfect Panini Pizza totally hit the mark!
I’ve made pizza using baguette before, but I’ve always found it really, really hard to stop the curved edges of the baguette from toppling the whole pizza over, dumping the topping as it rolls. Now I’ve found a solution – Ciabatta bread. It’s flat!! I know right!! Takes me a while to catch on sometimes (always!!!!). But I got there in the end and ooh what a delicious result.
The best thing about this recipe is that you can top your pizza with whatever you have in the fridge. I’ve used Salami, but ham, peppers, olives, sweetcorn, really the list is endless. If you try this please let me know what toppings you try?
1 Panini roll/1/2 ciabatta loaf per person
Tomato Salsa – or tomato pasta sauce (in a jar!)
Mozzerella Cheese – or any other good melting cheese
Salami – or any topping of your choice!
Method : Preheat oven to 200C/185C fan
I specifically haven’t given quantities for the ingredients above as it really depends on how many pizzas you are making and how hungry the people you are making them for are!!
Here is how I made our Perfect Panini Pizzas :
Bake in the oven for 20 mins until the base and edges are all crispy and the cheese is gooey and melting over the sides!
Star and I thoroughly enjoyed our Perfect Panini Pizzas and had fun deciding what other toppings we’d like to try. The perfect break from studying. Rested and refuelled.
I’m sending lots of love to all students and school children ( it’s SATS week ) who are studying and taking exams at the moment.
What is your favourite refuel food?
