With the nice sunny summer we have been having, I have been pressing the panini press into service to cook up all sorts of meals. Tater tots come out excellent. As do fish sticks. Last night we did bacon wrapped chicken, which, while good, was overdone by the time we felt the chicken was cooked through and the bacon was well done enough.
I almost always try to put the food on parchement paper to assist with cleanup. Things like the chicken though are very juicy and tend to overwhelm the paper.
Anyway, as you have guessed based on the title, I opened up a package of the cheap-o personal sized pizzas I remember so fondly from my university days.

|Still conjoined - if I was on my own, this would count as one serving that way.|
|Note the ceramic plate to add more pressure.|
|In spite of the so-so appearance, he said it was good and we should do it again sometime!|
As per my friend Jeff's inspired suggestion, I have simply been stacking these pizzas with the top one upside down. Now it is only the pizza crust exposed to the panini press and the toppings are kept warm and smushy inside. Much cleaner, and a good excuse to eat two pizza's at once!
