Fleischmann's®
 
 
Ingredients
 
Olive Salad
1 jar (16-ounce) giardiniera, drained and chopped, if necessary
1 can (6-ounce) halved, pitted olives, drained
2 tablespoons drained capers
1 teaspoon leaf oregano
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 to 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Muffuletta Bread
4 to 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 (4-1/2 tsp.) envelopes Fleischmann's® Quick Rise Yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 egg white, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons whole white sesame seed
Filling
1 pound (500 g) assorted sliced deli meats (salami, ham and/or mortadella)
8 ounces sliced provolone OR mozzarella cheese
 
Instructions
 
Olive Salad: Combine ingredients in medium bowl. Cover; refrigerate.
 
Bread: Combine 2 cups flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in large mixer bowl. Heat milk, water and olive oil to very warm (120to 130oF); add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover tightly with plastic wrap; refrigerate 8 to 24 hours.
 
Divide dough in half; form each half into smooth ball. Place on large greased baking sheet; flatten each to 7-inch circle. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until almost doubled in size, about 45 minutes.
 
Brush tops with egg white; sprinkle with sesame seed. Bake at 400oF for 20 to 25 minutes or until done. Remove from sheet; cool on wire rack about 1 hour before making sandwiches.
 
To assemble sandwiches: Split loaves in half horizontally. Top each bottom half with half of Olive Salad, spreading to within 1 inch of edge. Layer half of meat and cheese over Olive Salad; place tops on sandwiches. Cut each into 4 wedges.
