17 Best Subway Secret Menu Items

1. Pizza Sub

The pizza sub is a savory delight offering the convenience of a sandwich but tasting like a pizza with cheesy layers, marinara sauce and toppings of your choice. 

You’ll have to be specific with your order since it’s a unique Subway secret menu item. Make your choice of bread followed by the marinara sauce, cheese and toppings (salami, olives, mushrooms, bell pepper, pepperoni, etc). Toasting is optional, but make sure to finish with some seasoning like cheese, oregano or red pepper flakes.
