Saluting the World's Best Sandwiches: Pastrami on Pane Pizza
Sandwich: Pastrami on pane pizza.
Eaten by: Erica Firpo, writer.
Where you ate said sandwich: Around the corner from Rome's Ghetto neighborhood.
Ingredients: Roscioli white pizza bread, home-made mayonaise, mustard, sliced cornichons, thinly sliced New York pastrami and a spritz of lemon.
Flavor profile: Enveloping and warm like a nonna's hug. The freshly toasted pane pizza, pastrami saltiness, crunch of cornichons, and piquant mix of lemon, mayo, and mustard make me feel loved.
Why it was love at first bite: Because the two best things in life are Italy and pastrami, and the only thing I'm missing in my world is a Langer's #44.
