One of my all-time favorite restaurants is Olympia Pizza & Spaghetti House, an amazing little greek pizza restaurant near my parents house. They have the best pizza, salads and subs I’ve ever had!
As much as I love their pizzas, I am not a huge sauce fan and so my favorite meal to order growing up was their pepperoni sub. A big crusty french roll with lots of pepperoni and yummy mozzarella cheese… and always served with their simple, but delicious dinner salad.
I haven’t had one of these in years, but for some reason I was thinking about them recently and then realized how easy they would be to recreate at home!
Now, you’ll notice I’m not putting real measurements down for this recipe. You can’t really go wrong on this one as long as you have good ingredients. If you’re making several subs, make sure you have a lot of cheese and pepperoni. If you’re only making one or two, then you don’t need as much.
And as with anything you cook, but especially these with the fewest ingredients, your final dish will only be as good as the ingredients you use!
Pepperoni Subs Recipe
large crusty french or sourdough rolls
good-quality mozzarella cheese (in a ball or chunk that you can slice)
Preheat the oven to 450ºF. Line a baking sheet with foil.
Slice the bread in half lengthwise and place the halves on the cookie sheet. Lay a single layer of pepperoni (slightly overlapping the slices, as they will shrink a bit) on each bread half. Then top each half with a good layer of sliced mozzarella cheese.
Place in the oven (on the center-rack!) for 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted and starting to turn golden brown. Fold the two halves back together and serve with a good fresh dinner salad!
