Take your next picnic or party to a whole new level with my Italian Pressed Sandwich recipe!
Ciabatta Bread Tomato Pesto Large Pepperoni Capricola Ham Calabrese Salami Fresh Mozzarella Basil Tomatoes
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.
Top the meat with slices of fresh mozzarella cheese, fresh basil leaves, and sliced tomato.
Top the tomatoes with calabrese salami.
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.
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!
