Quick Meal: Pizza-nini

Last night was one of those evenings where I had an hour after getting home from work to not only make dinner but eat it too as we had an appointment to get to. I didn't want to just go through the drive through on my way home so I whipped up something I have made before that is super simple, delicious and you don't even need to turn on your oven.

A pizza-nini is essentially, a panini made out of pizza ingredients. I use store bought pizza crust and spread on my favourite toppings. Instead of baking the pizza in the oven, I fold it in half, brush it with some olive oil and grill it on my panini press until the cheese is all melted and then eat it like a sandwich.

You can go classic with cheese and tomato sauce like this pizza-nini for my hubby:

Or you can get a little fancier like this proscuitto, ricotta, fig and arugula one for me:

Get creative!

To round out the meal serve with a salad and you have a quick and delicious dinner in no time. These are great for entertaining and make great appetizers or hors d'oeuvres when cut up into bite size pieces.
