This Vegan Pepperoni Pizza Panini is a delicious pizza in a sandwich! An easy and satisfying lunch or dinner that’s quick and easy, and oh so good!
After coming up with my tasty pepperoni recipe and my amazing vegan mozzarella, I just knew they would make a great sandwich together. Oh, boy, was I right! This is one of the best sandwiches I’ve eaten!
Spicy pepperoni, tangy pizza sauce, and melty mozzarella, grilled to perfection! It’s out of this world!
The pepperoni, the mozzarella, and the pizza sauce can all be made in advance. So this sandwich can go together in minutes! Perfect for when you’re in the mood for pepperoni pizza, but don’t want to take the time or heat up the oven to make one!
What do I need to cook this pizza panini?
If you don’t have a panini press or grill, you can cook your sandwich in a non-stick skillet. Place a weight on the sandwich like a small plate topped with a can of food to press the sandwich while it cooks.

What kind of bread should I use?
My favorite bread to use for this sandwich is homemade sourdough bread. However, any bread can be used. It should, however be more dense than soft. When buying bread, I always check the label to make sure it is vegan and oil free. Gluten free bread or whole grain bread would work well with this recipe.
