This is such a knockout-- super impressive to serve guests, none of whom will have any idea how easy it was. Seriously, this comes together in a snap. It's hearty, delicious, and gorgeous. Oh-- and it's like winning a free trip to Italy. What more could you ask?

How to Make Italian Torta Sandwiches

Step-by-Step

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray or grease bottom and sides of an 8- or 9-inch springform pan. Roll 2/3 of dough into a circle and press onto bottom and up sides of pan. (I can give you a great pie dough recipe if you like, or use a convenience package.)
  2. 2. Fill crust with remaining ingredients, except egg, layering them in order. Roll out final 1/3 of dough into an 8-inch circle, and place atop fillings, pinching seams with bottom crust to seal. Make vent holes with a fork, then brush with beaten egg.
  3. 3. Bake 50 minutes. Let rest 15 minutes, then remove from pan. Slice into wedges. This is also great at room temperature or cold. What a different, delightful sandwich!
