Pizza Sandwiches

Pizza Sandwiches by Martha Stewart

This is one of my first introductions to goat cheese and other Italian meats. Thanks Martha Stewart. Actually, I think this recipe was in the same magazine as the roast chicken. And like the roast chicken, it's way yummy.

The recipe calls for homemade dough, but store-bought pizza dough, will work just fine I'm sure. I love the mixture of textures and flavors that is in this "sandwich." There's the spiciness of soppressata (a type of salami), the taginess of the goat cheese, the sweetness of the tomatoes and the richness of the mozzarella cheese.

It is a pretty rich little pizza though without the arugula. The arugula with the lemon juice adds a nice freshness to this dish and helps cut through the richness of the stuffing.

If you don't make your own dough, it's not a hard dish. The ingredients may be a little pricier than your normal pepperoni, but it's a fun indulgence every now and then. And again, thanks to Martha for introducing me to goat cheese and soppressata.
