I love this recipe! I have been making it for a few years now and always get many compliments! The only change I made is that I don't add the Mozzarella. I think the provolone cheese is enough.

I've made a similar recipe out of a large round of bread. I love the idea of smaller bites!! I also place a heavy pan or dishes on top of them to "press" the sandwiches. Thanks so much for posting!

I have made this many times, excellent make-ahead item for parties. Sometimes I add a little mayo and mustard to the top layer only for flavor. They're always a hit!

I found that making the Muffuletta with real cheeses and the meats it was too expensive. But I thought of a few ideas and I find that corned beef sliced thick makes a great substitute along with thinly sliced mozzarella cheese... I would DEFINATELY make this again whenever I have unexpected guests over. It's a great recipe that everyone loves!
