Take your next picnic or party to a whole new level with my Italian Pressed Sandwich recipe!

You will need...

Ciabatta Bread Tomato Pesto Large Pepperoni Capricola Ham Calabrese Salami Fresh Mozzarella Basil Tomatoes

Step 1

Slice the ciabatta in half longways, and spread tomato pesto on each half. Place a layer of pepperoni and capicola ham on the bottom half of the bread.

Step 2

Top the meat with slices of fresh mozzarella cheese, fresh basil leaves, and sliced tomato.

Step 3

Top the tomatoes with calabrese salami.

Step 4

Place on the top half of the bread, then wrap the entire sandwich tightly in plastic wrap. Put a heavy skillet or pot on top of the wrapped sandwich to press it, and set both in the fridge for at least 20 minutes, up to 8 hours or overnight.

Step 5

Right before serving, unwrap the sandwich and slice off the edges until it's nice and square. Then cut it in half and in half again, and serve!
