Introduction: Spicy, Zesty Italian Sub

This sandwich is the perfect balance of spicy, tangy, and savory. A flavor-packed delight.


You will need:

  • Ciabatta Bread
  • Provolone Cheese (2-3 slices)
  • Spicy Pepperoni (3-5 slices)
  • Capicola (Or other Italian meat)
  • Pepperoncinis
  • Red Wine Vinegar
  • Italian Seasoning (Oregano works too)

Step 1: Gather Your Indgredients

Gather the ingredients mentioned in the supplies section of this instructable.

Step 2: Slice Your Bread

Cut your Ciabatta into two pieces so you can fill the sandwich.

Step 3: Add Your Cheese

Add the Provolone Cheese to your bread. Melting the cheese is optional. I recommend adding 2-3 slices.

Step 4: Add the Meat (Part 1)

Add your pepperoni or spicy meat. Go heavy so you can get lots of layers of meat. I recommend using 3-5 slices.

Step 5: Add Your Meat (Part 2)

Add your second meat. I chose Capicola. What you choose is up to you.

Step 6: Add Your Lettuce

Add a layer of lettuce on top of the meat. This will give the sandwich a lighter, more fresh tone. Iceberg Lettuce is preferable, but other types like Romaine will work too.

Step 7: Add Pepperoncinis

Pepperoncinis are my favorite ingredient in the sandwich. They are very bold, spicy, and crunchy. Put on a big helping, but not so much they will sog out the bread.

Step 8: Add Vinegar

A splash of Red Wine Vinegar, along with the pepperoncinis, gives this sandwich acidity that it needs.

Step 9: Add Seasoning

Add Italian Seasoning or Oregano to the top of your sandwich. Adds more Italian flavor.

Step 10: Enjoy!
