Ever heard of a wedgie? No? No worries, let me introduce you to a fun and unique sandwich!
This is a sandwich I grew up eating. It was popular in the tri-state area of West Virginia, Western Maryland and Pennsylvania and served at the pizzeria Fox’s Pizza Den. A wedgie is basically a pizza crust cut in half and filled with your favorite deli meat and toppings.
I like a classic wedgie turkey, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and of course a side of ranch for dipping! Next time I make a wedgie, I think I’ll add some back olives and sun-dried tomatoes!
The fillings can be anything you like, new-age wedgies are filled with meatballs, pulled pork and buffalo chicken! So the sky is the limit, fill it what anything you are craving!Print
- 1 pizza crust – I used a Boboli premade thin-crust
- 8 pepperoni
- 6 slices of turkey
- 3 slices of cheese – I used American but use your favorite
- a little mayo and/or mustard if you like
- toppings of your choice, i.e. lettuce, tomatoes, black olives, etc
Preheat oven to 350F
- Bake crust for about 5-8 minutes to get it warmed through and slightly crispy.
- Remove crust from oven.
- Cut the crust in half. On one half of the crust build your sandwich. I start with the mayo, then turkey, pepperoni and finish with cheese.
- Place both sides of the crust back in the oven and bake about 8 minutes. Remove the half of the crust w/o any toppings. Then turn the oven to broil and cook until cheese is starting to brown and get all bubbly.
- Remove from oven and top with the other half of the pizza crust and serve while hot!
