Layered Italian Sandwich

Layered Italian Sandwich

Love the layers, but the real deli sandwich secret is the basil pesto slathered on both sides of the bread.

Ingredients

  • 1 round focaccia bread (about 8 inches in diameter)
  • 1 container (7 ounces) refrigerated basil pesto
  • 4 ounces sliced hard salami
  • 6 lettuce leaves
  • 4 plum (Roma) tomatoes, sliced
  • 6 ounces thinly sliced smoked turkey
  • 4 ounces sliced provolone cheese

Instructions

  1. Cut focaccia horizontally in half. Spread pesto on both cut sides of focaccia.
  2. Layer salami, lettuce, tomatoes, turkey and cheese on bottom of focaccia; add top of focaccia.
  3. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to blend flavors.
  4. Cut into 6 wedges.

Expert Tips

Use any of your favorite deli meats and cheeses instead of the salami, turkey and provolone.

This sandwich can be made up to 6 hours ahead of time. Cut into wedges just before serving.
