I would make this again with a few alterations. The Calamatta olives over powered it so I would use a milder olive. I will use a sweeter tomato like a cherry or grape, cut in half and I would not use olive oil but use the balsamic vinagrette recommended.
I made this with pepperoni since my grocery store was out of salami. It was a good choice. Hopefully I'll have salami for the next time but overall, the recipe was a good one.
