Pesto & Prosciutto Italian Focaccia Sandwich


Rich, flavorful, fluffy Focaccia layered with fresh greens, cured Italian meats, and creamy burrata for the most dreamy sandwich recipe! This Pesto & Prosciutto Italian Focaccia Sandwich is my go-to lunch that's on repeat, especially for when I've made a batch of focaccia for the week ahead.

How to Make Homemade Focaccia:

I have two recipes for focaccia, one is yeast-based (store-bought yeast that is) and the other is sourdough based. Both are equally just as delicious, but I personally love the health benefits and taste of sourdough focaccia the best. Check out the recipes for both linked below!

Ingredients you'll need to Make an Italian Focaccia Sandwich:

  • Hal’s NY Backyard BBQ Chips (optional)
  • Focaccia (about 3” x 6” rectangle)
  • Pesto
  • Burrata, preferably room temperature
  • Thinly Sliced Prosciutto
  • Thinly Sliced Salami
  • Baby Arugula
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Black Pepper, to taste

Can Focaccia Sandwiches be Made in Advance?

Absolutely! Focaccia holds it's firmness pretty well which makes it a great bread for picnic sandwiches.

My two recommendations when making sandwiches in advance is to (1) make sure any liquids like olive oil or vinegars are adding in the middles of the sandwiches. Such as, make sure the lettuce is the last thing touching the bread, or maybe the cheese, to help any liquids from being absorbed by the bread. And (2) wrap in parchment paper then a sandwich bag to help the sandwich hold it's crisp texture and stay together.
