The Schmitter is a legendary sandwich made at the historical McNally’s Tavern in Chestnut Hill outside of Philadelphia. I was so inspired by the sandwich after eating it on a recent visit to the city that I wanted to transform it into a pizza! I took a simplified copycat recipe approach in this video so anyone can make it at home!
Despite using simplistic ingredients, this was very tasty, and had a similar flavor profile to the Schmitter sandwich. There’s no substitute for the real thing, but this is sure to be a hit at a party!
The only change I would suggest is using American Cheese rather than the mild cheddar here. Check back soon when I make another version of the Schmitter as a double crust stuffed pie!
