Zesty Italian Subs Pizzaria Style

Cody was craving an Italian sub from the local delivery place. The cost $7.99 + tax and delivery. This got me thinking and I made a trip to the grocery store. For the price of 1 sub, I bought enough ingredients to make 6 subs!

Sub-style buns
Deli ham
Deli hard salami
Provolone cheese slices
Lettuce shredded
Bannana peppers sliced (mild yellow in a jar)
Onions (optional)
Zesty itallian dressing

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a piece of foil, place bun and layer with ham, salami, pepperoni and provolone cheese. Bake for 10-12 minutes until cheese is bubbly. Top sub with shredded lettuce, peppers, olives and Zesty Italian dressing. Eat right off the foil that its cooked on…no dishes!


BBQ Chicken Pizza with Bacon

I have a serious addiction to the BBQ Pizza at my local pizza place. For the price of this homemade pizza…I can make over 3-4 of them! Not to mention I can add more chicken and customize.

1 store bought Large premade pizza crust (I got mine from Plumb’s  bakery, made fresh that day)
1 Cup of your favorite BBQ sauce
1 large cooked chicken breast diced (I made extra earlier in the week so I would have leftovers)
3-4 pieces of cooked and crumbled bacon (also made earlier and used the leftover pieces)
Thinly sliced red onion to taste
About 1 1/2 – 2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese (Buy on sale and freeze…keeps very well)
1 TBS butter or margarine
2 TBS toasted sesame seeds (optional, but highly recommended)

Spread BBQ sauce with the back of a large spoon onto crust avoiding edges. Sprinkle with Chicken, Bacon, sliced Red Onion and top with Mozzarella Cheese avoiding crust. With a basting brush, lightly coat crust with softened butter, sprinkle crust with toasted sesame seeds. Place pizza directly on the rack of a pre-heated 375 degree oven until ingredients are warmed and cheese is melted. About 12-15 minutes.
