Sharp, briny olive relish balances the richness of Italian meats in this classic New Orleans sandwich turned calzone.
Why This Recipe Works
With layer upon layer of meat and cheese, a traditional muffuletta is a hearty sandwich large enough to feed a small family. We took the original concept, trimmed it down, and converted it into a Muffuletta Calzone. To vary the texture and flavor of the relish, we used a mix of black and green olives. Making homemade dough was time-consuming and unnecessary. We got great results from premade supermarket dough. Although we found most of the deli meats for our Muffuletta Calzone recipe prepackaged in the supermarket, tasters preferred the meats bought freshly sliced from the deli counter.
