Every Friday it’s pizza night at our house. I love cooking up fun pizza combinations, but sometimes I crave something a little different. That’s when this Pepperoni Pizza Salad Sandwich was born. I used baked pizza dough as the bread, and then filled it with lightly dressed spring mix, pesto, goat cheese, mozzarella, and Hormel Pepperoni…lots of pepperoni!
On cold, winter nights there’s something very comforting about these Pepperoni Pizza Salad Sandwiches. They’re nice and warm when you bite into them and have all the elements of your favorite pepperoni pizza–and then some!

STEP 3:: Spread the goat cheese & pesto mixture over the crust.
STEP 4:: Sprinkle 1/4 cup of the mozzarella over the top.
STEP 5:: Cover with Hormel pepperoni.
STEP 6:: Slice in half.
