Deconstruct Caprese Salad: And Make a Sandwich

Caprese salad is a simple dish but one that packs a lot of flavor-vine ripened tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, basil, a dash of salt and a drizzle of balsamic, olive oil or both!  With snow outside my window and a longing for the days of summer and ripe tomatoes, I decided to experiment. What if I deconstructed the caprese salad and turned it into a hearty sandwich instead?  As usual, I had some extra pizza dough on hand (if you haven't heard me say it before, pizza dough makes excellent sandwich rolls!) and had just bought some pretty decent "hot-house" tomatoes at Whole Foods. Because we're a "pizza household" I had all the other ingredients on hand as well.  The only heavy lifting for this experiment would be putting the Baking Steel in the oven-DONE!  Now let's deconstruct some salad and create some caprese love on Baking Steel bread!
