When I was a kid, we used to drive to a nearby town to get hot subs at a pizza place - they were so delicious. I have never seen a pizza place or a sub place that had anything like them, but I've always kept an eye out for a similar recipe or restaurant sub (most subs, even Italian, are served cold). The meats in this are what attracted me and I was not disapointed! I don't care for yellow cheeses on pizza, so I changed out the cheddar and American for provolone. Otherwise made it exactly like the recipe - terrific. I will try wrapping the sandwich in foil next time as I remember the roll being more soft than crisp. Thanks so much for posting.

This was a very good sandwich; perfect for a casual meal. I cut this down to 2 servings, using large grinder rolls. I left out the American cheese, and the sandwich was still plenty cheesy without it.

We love pizza and my family loved this sandwich. Your are right about it being a mouthfull. All the delicious pizza flavors combined in a thick, hearty, hot cheesy sandwich. A great idea and a good change of pace recipe. Thanks Nurse Di.
