Some common Italian cold cuts include salami, prosciutto, pancetta and capocollo. Other Italian cold cut meats include finocchiona and salsiccia. Salami is perhaps the most common Italian cold cut and is made up of ground pork that is seasoned with salt, garlic and other spices.
Prosciutto is a type of cold cut from a cured raw ham that has pure white fat and deep red meat. There are different types of prosciutto that are either salty or sweet. Some popular types of prosciutto are Toscano, casalingo, salato and dolce.
Pancetta is often confused with bacon since it comes from the same cut as bacon. The main difference is that it is not made with sugar and is not smoked. Pancetta is made with salt, pepper, garlic and various spices.
