Very creative way to make a sandwich!!! I actually made it more of a pizza sandwich. I added a bit of pizza sauce to the mixture and added some ham along with the pepperoni. Awesome!

This sandwich is very similar to the muffuletta. At lunchtime these sandwiches walk out the door by the dozen from the Central Market on Decatur St. in New Orleans. They are the best!

This was delicious, and the whole family enjoyed it. I didn't have any pimiento stuffed olives, so I had to leave those out. I did add a grated carrot to the olive salad (mostly to get more veggies in my four year old). I also used ham, salami, pepperoni, provolone and mozzarella cheese. I served this with some minestrone soup and we had a great dinner.

This is the best sandwich !!!!!!!!!!!!!! I Have made it numerous times and everytime it just gets better. I add sliced provolone along with the sliced Mozz. I use italian bread and have also used chibatta but any loaf of bread works great. This is truly a great sandwich.

Super yummy! I got rid of the dried oregano and the roasted red peppers because that just didn't sound appetizing, but it turned out to be great!

Really good! I used up some leftover Muffaletta mix, and omitted the roasted red peppers because mine had mold on them (ewww). Very similar to the original you get down at Central Grocery in New Orleans (I miss that place!).

Made this to take to the winery with us and everyone went crazy over it. Added some prosciutto but don't necessarily think it added/detracted from anything. Let it sit overnight then cut it and plastic wrapped each section. The tapenade is fantastic!
