“This is my take on a Rachael Ray recipe: Inside Out Pizza Panini. I don't follow it in it's entirety, if I did I would use the same title. I have a panini press I have fallen in love with, and this is like my two favorite things in the world (pizza & panini). I am putting *my* favorite ingredients in this, but just like pizza you can do what you want. Unlike a lot of these recipes I do not add pizza sauce, I serve it heated on the side for dunking.”
