Pizza Sandwiches

I love pizza, and by that I mainly mean that I love cheese and bread.  Well, for a sandwich version, take the classics of mozzarella and pepperoni and add a few extras.  Rye bread is one of my favorites, so that's what I use here, but you could substitute whole wheat, white or you favorite Italian bread.  If you want to cut down on grease, you can also use turkey versions of the meat, and it'll taste just as good.  For the perfect side dish, I suggest a simple salad.

Pizza Sandwiches

Servings: 2 (makes 2 Sandwiches, or 4 half-sandwiches)


4 slices rye bread
4 slices salami
32 slices pepperoni
2 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
24 peperoncini slices
Pam butter flavor spray
spray butter (or butter)


Heat griddle or frying pan to medium and cook the salami until it's browned on each side.

Meanwhile, begin to assemble the sandwiches.  Spray one side of each slice of bread with spray butter (or spread lightly with regular butter).  The buttered sides will be the outside of the sandwiches.  Arrange 8 slices of pepperoni on a non-buttered side of 2 of the slices of bread (buttered side facing down).  Once the salami is browned, put 2 slices of salami on top of the pepperoni on each sandwich and then layer each sandwich as follows: 1/2 ounce cheese, 12 peperoncini slices, 1/2 ounce cheese, 8 slices pepperoni, and top with the remaining bread (butter side facing up, the outside of the sandwich).

Heat the griddle or frying pan back to medium, spray with Pam, and cook the sandwiches until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted.  Be careful when flipping the sandwiches over so that no pepperoni or peperoncinis slip out of the bread.

Cut each sandwich diagonally and plate.

Happy eating!
