Rhodes Warm-N-Serve rolls have been a huge lifesaver at dinnertime lately! As the weather warms up, life seems to get busier and we try to avoid turning the oven on really hot days.
Rhodes Warm-N-Serve rolls have been a huge lifesaver at dinnertime lately! As the weather warms up, life seems to get busier and we try to avoid turning the oven on really hot days. I love that the Warm-N-Serve rolls are already baked and they still taste just as yummy and fresh out of the microwave as the traditional Bake-N-Serve rolls do out of the oven, but in a fraction of the time.
Start by baking or microwaving your Warm-N-Serve Rolls. Slice them in half and get ready to fill them.
Fill them with your favorite pizza toppings--try to avoid anything that has too much moisture, or you'll end up with a soggy sandwich. We used ham, deli-sliced pepperoni, cheese, and sliced olives.
Brush the outside of the rolls with olive oil and sprinkle with Italian seasoning and garlic salt and press in a panini press until cheese is melted and bread is toasty. Alternately, you can place them in a casserole dish and cover them with foil and bake at 350 until hot and melty.
Serve with pizza sauce for dipping.

Pizza Panini Dippers
1 bag Rhodes Whole Wheat Warm-N-Serve Rolls (6ct)
12 slices deli ham
18 slices pepperoni
6 slices provolone cheese
6 slices mozzarella cheese
Sliced olives (optional)
¼ cup olive oil
Garlic salt, for sprinkling
Italian seasoning blend, for sprinkling
For the dipping sauce:
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
1 tablespoon italian seasoning
¼ teaspoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon honey
Warm rolls according to directions on bag--either in the microwave or the oven. Once they are cooled to
room temperature, cut them open.
To prepare the dipping sauce, in a blender combine diced tomatoes, tomato paste, italian seasoning, garlic salt and honey. Blend until smooth. Heat in a small saucepan on the stove top or in a microwave-safe bowl.
Keep warm until dippers are ready to serve.
Preheat a panini press to medium-high.
Place a slice of mozzarella cheese on the top of each sliced roll and provolone on the bottom of each roll.
(Having the cheese on the outside will help hold everything together when it melts.) Layer 2 slices ham, 3
pepperonis, and sliced olives (if using). Close the roll and brush both sides with olive oil. Place sandwich on panini press and sprinkle with garlic salt. Press each roll and cook until the cheese is melted and filling is
Serve immediately with warm dipping sauce.
