Theo's Submarine Sandwich Pizza

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

It took a long time for us to have the same nights off and share a dinner together, but I wanted this to be fresh and not a leftover. Why? Because I have never made this before, but I remembered it from a little cafe that was in downtown Vancouver Washington.

Theo's closed many years ago, too many for me to remember, but this pizza I will never forget. I only enjoyed this delicious pizza a few times, but it was so different and delicious, that when they closed, I knew I needed to try making it myself.

(Delicious and Very Close, But Not Really) Theo's Submarine Sandwich Pizza
by the seat of my pants!
425-degree oven

1 pound of pizza crust dough (I am using the parsley and garlic dough found here, but Theo's used a plain dough)

1/2 c favorite pizza sauce OR use our favorite recipe
8-10 slices honey ham, deli-style
12-14 slices dry salami
8 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 large green pepper
1 large tomato
thinly sliced Peperoncini

On cornmeal sprinkled surface press and pat dough out to about a 12-inch pizza size. I wanted to be able to slide the raw pizza onto the pizza stone heating up in the oven.

Cover with the sauce and get ready to layer on the flavor.

Sprinkle with most of the cheese, layer on the ham and then the dry salami.

Add the green pepper and the rest of the cheese. Now carefully....

....and gently make sure the pizza crust has not begun to stick. Slide a large flat turner around the edge of the dough.

Take the cutting board to the oven, and slide the assembled pizza onto the hot stone baker. I did have to assist in the movement, but after a gentle nudge, the whole pie slides gently off the board and onto the stone.
Bake 20 minutes or until golden.

Remove from the oven, and let cool a minute (or 5 this stuff is hot!), slide back onto the cutting board. Add thinly sliced tomatoes and Pepperoni garnish. Cut and serve! Yum is all I can say.
