Mozzarella and Roasted Red Pepper Strecci Sandwich
Have you heard of Sullivan Street Bakery located on Sullivan Street in Manhattan? Well, if not…I will tell you that they are famous for their delicious Brick Oven Artisan breads. R&S Meat Market is lucky enough to receive fresh bread delivery from Sullivan Street bakery..every morning!
Amongst the favorites, are the Strecci bread which is made from pizza dough, sea salt and olive oil. We cannot seem to keep it in the house! If you would like to make these super simple, yet tasty sandwiches be sure to order your loaves ahead of time…this way you will avoid disappointment!
For the sandwiches on the platter in the photos, I used one Strecci bread and one small Ciabatta bread. You can use any type of bread that you like.
Plan to make these sandwiches several hours before you’d like to serve them. Let them set on the counter covered with plastic wrap.
You will need:
2 loaves of bread
One ball of fresh mozzarella; sliced into rounds and then cut in half.
One cup of roasted red peppers, sliced and cut in half.
Good quality Olive Oil
Freshly ground salt and pepper
(You could also add some fancy prosciutto such as Jámon Ibérico or Jambon de Bayonne…)
