Serves 4 | Prep Time 5 | Cook Time 10

Ingredients

8 slices thick-cut sourdough bread
1 ball (16 ounces) fresh mozzarella, cut into 1/4-inch slices
4 Roma tomatoes, cut into thick slices
1 (7 ounce) package of basil pesto
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Extra-virgin olive oil


Pre-heat your panini pan and press according to the manufacturer's instructions (alternately, two pre-heated skillets may be used, with one skillet serving as a press/weight).


Spread the pesto on each slice of bread.


Top four pieces of bread with a layer of tomato.


Lightly season the tomatoes with salt and pepper, if desired.


Add a layer of mozzarella and then place another piece of bread on top to complete the sandwich.


Drizzle olive oil on the panini pan or skillet.


Place sandwiches in the pan and cover with the panini press or second skillet.


Turn sandwiches over after 4 to 5 minutes and replace weight. The sandwiches are ready when golden brown and the mozzarella has melted around the edges.
