      I hope you don't mind but I did this using sandwich sized ciabatta rolls and it was deliicous! I loved all the flavours although at first I was a bit hesitant to use cucumber, but then thought what the heck and went for it! I used smoked turkey. I WILL make this again!

      I tried this with ham instead of turkey, and while it had good flavor, the cheese didn't melt fully, even after 45 minutes in the oven. The bottom of the sourdough round had a pizza crunch to it, which I enjoyed.
