Mozzarella and Pepperoni Panini

Another great recipe from Lara over at Recipe Shoebox! This tasty sandwich has great flavor and was quick and easy to prepare.

Mozzarella and Pepperoni Panini - Modified from Lara at Recipe Shoebox

1 loaf of Parmesan Italian Fococcia Bread
1/4-1/2 C Balsamic Vinaigrette (Lara has a recipe for how to make your own)
Mozzarella cheese, to taste
Pepperoni (we used Turkey Pepperoni)

Cut your fococcia bread into "sandwich" sized portions.

We got 4 from our loaf. Then, slice them in half.

Slice the mozzarella cheese to taste, enough to cover half of each of the sandwiches. And, pour the vinaigrette into a small bowl.

Brush the bread with the Balsamic Vinaigrette.

Top half of the bread with mozzarella and pepperoni.

Then, place the other bread slice on top.

Place on a grill, in your George Foreman, or on the stove top in a frying pan, and heat/grill until the cheese melts and the pepperoni is warm.

Serve with a tossed salad or green beans, and enjoy.

We think these would be excellent with a pizza sauce on the bread, or with the Vinaigrette and sauteed veggies. Yum.


  1. I really want to try this recipe. Looks delish, something my family would like. Thanks for the recipe. Geri

  2. Doesn't Lara have such great recipes!?! This is one I need to try.

  3. My kids were just begging me to make this one again. I never thought of using a pre-made basalmic vinaigrette, but that would make it easy as can be! I also love the look of your homemade panini bread.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
