Cooking: Italian Sub Roll-Ups

We love Italian style subs, even more so since we visited Great Lakes Grinders in Ohio.  The Heavy Italian sub was to die for, literally.  I was craving one and obviously we are nowhere close to Ohio so I decided to come up with a version of my own.  Now, we are on the Keto Diet, so bread was not an option.  These little roll-ups satisfy the craving, are delicious and are low carb!  If you decide you want to make this with bread, go for it, to be honest I am kind of jealous! 😉


  • Ham
  • Salami
  • Pepperoni
  • Sliced Provolone Cheese
  • Shredded Mozzarella
  • Sliced Pepperonchinis
  • Shredded Lettuce
  • Creamy Italian Dressing

These ingredients are purely suggestions and I encourage you to add or take away ingredients to meet your preferences.

Step 1: Lay down two pieces of sliced provolone cheese vertically.  These pieces should be slightly overlapping each other.

Step 2: Next layer two pieces of ham sticking with the overlapping theme.

Step 3: You should now have a length of ham and provolone cheese.  Add about 3 -4 pieces of salami directly on top of the ham and cheese.  Layering the pieces on top.

Step 4: Following the same method, add 4 -5 pieces of pepperoni.

Step 5: Next add a small handful of shredded mozzarella cheese to the length of the meats.

Step 6: Top the mozzarella cheese with pepperonichis and lettuce.


Step 7: Starting at the top, roll carefully and pin with a toothpick.


Step 8: Serve with creamy Italian dressing for dipping.


Step 9: Enjoy!
