Louisiana has the Pizzaletta from Cascio’s Market Bistro, Bossier City. It is a pizza sandwich. To make this tasty pizza sandwich it calls for muffaletta ingredients. This would include Genoa salami, Black Forest Ham, olive salad and provolone you then add a second pizza crust and sprinkle it with mozzarella, provolone and crushed red pepper. I thought this was a fun pizza to make. I used a New York Pizza Dough recipe. I made the olive salad the night before. It is best for it to sit overnight in your fridge. Both recipes will be added for you to try. If you would like to make this pizza you start by putting the olive salad all over the bottom crust, I then layered the salami and ham (I got the meat from the grocery deli), top with slices of provolone. You then put the second crust on top of those ingredients. You top with shredded mozzarella, provolone and crushed red pepper.
The family results; Martin, Rachel and I enjoyed it the best. Everyone else passed or thought it was too heavy with flavor.
I always make my pizza dough the night before. I just put in the fridge and then take out a couple of hours before I make the pizzas. It makes less work for me Friday night. I also made the olive salad Thursday night at midnight. I really enjoyed whipping this up. I searched online for a combination of olive salad recipes. I then take those recipes and make up a recipe of my own.
Funny story for Thursday (at least I think it is funny). I was roasting a red pepper in my oven. All of a sudden the smoke alarm starts loudly beeping and Scrappy starts barking, barking, barking. I grab a chair to reach the alarm to turn it off. I am too short to reach it! Lily came to the rescue and gets it silenced. All I could think of were Kent and Eric were upstairs sleeping and I have a crazy circus going on in the kitchen. No one got up so I assumed they must have slept through it. It was funny because Friday morning Kent wanted to know what I was cooking up to make the alarm go off and get Scrappy barking. That dog always gives me away! 😉
