I made as posted to be true to the recipe, then made with some changes. Second time around I sauteed the onions and bell peppers in olive oil before putting on the sandwich. Much better. Also, there needs to be some kind of sauce,,,haven't worked that out yet. I did layer everything as posted, and pre-baked the pizza crusts so they wouldn't get soggy. I am very sorry, but although I love pastrami and salami, I'm not sure I'll make this particular sandwich again. Hate to leave a less than spectacular review, but I have to be honest. So sorry!

This is a great "to-go" sandwich, if you can resist not digging in as soon as it's done. I was a little confused about the pizza crust and not sure how that would work, so I used a lovely potato and chive ciabatta loaf instead. I also used a chive cream cheese spread. I layered everything as posted, but also threw in some slicing pepperoni, as I had some left over and needed to use it. Before setting the top crust on, I sprinkled it liberally with some garlic olive oil and balsamic vinegar, then a few red pepper flakes. I then baked the wrapped loaf in the oven for 25 minutes, let it cool, then sliced it into 5 sections to wrap individually. This was my "to go" lunch for the week and it was fabulous! I will definitely be doing this again. Thanks for sharing this great, versatile recipe.
