Muffuletta Pizza

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by gailanng

My husband's spin on the famous New Orleans creation. Amounts of toppings can be altered to taste. Provolone can be substituted for some of the mozzarella. The thickness of the crust also determines baking time.

This was fantastic! I don't care for pepperoni, so I used soppresatta instead (and proscuitto for the ham). I had jarred olive salad that I bought in New Orleans. The flavors were perfect, and this made a delicious, filling pizza pie! Thanks for sharing this.
