Prep time: 10 min

Cook time: 15 min

Serves 4


  • 1 can pineapple rings, thinly sliced in half

  • 1 medium red onion, half-moon thinly sliced

  • 1 small tomato, thinly sliced

  • 1 bunch spinach

  • 1 load italian bread

  • 6oz thinly sliced mozzarella cheese (or vegan mozzarella cheese)

  • 1 lb deli roasted ham, thinly sliced (or vegan ham, tofurky or Yves)

  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter (or vegan butter)

  • kosher salt and black pepper, to taste


  1. Heat the oven to 400F. Spray a large sheet pan with non-stick spray.

  2. Season pineapples with salt and pepper. Place tomato, pineapple and onion slices on a sheet pan in a single later. Bake for 6-7 minutes, or until they're browned and caramelized.

  3. Season spinach with salt and pepper, to taste.

  4. Build your panini by layering 1 slice of bread with 1 slice of cheese, ham, pineapple, onion, tomato, fresh spinach and top everything with another slice of cheese. Cover with another piece of bread.

  5. Spray a panini press with cooking spray and a bit of butter. Add sandwich, top with another bit of butter and close press to cook the sandwich until golden brown on both sides. If you don't have a panini press, you can toast the sandwich in the oven and just press it together after toasting or you can use a big pan and press the sandwich down with a heavy skillet until pressed. Enjoy!
