Add the giardiniera, pepperoncini, olives, tomatoes, capers, and artichokes to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until all of the ingredients are roughly chopped to the consistency of a relish. Reserve.
Combine the mayonnaise and pesto in a small bowl. Place the tortillas on a flat work surface.
Spread about 2 tablespoons of the pesto mayonnaise on each tortilla. Layer 2 slices of mortadella, 3 slices of Provolone, 4 slices of salami, and 3 slices of prosciutto over the mayonnaise spread, covering most of the surface of the tortilla.
Spread about 1/3 cup of the chopped vegetables over the surface of the meat. Roll the filled tortillas and secure with 5–6 sandwich picks along the seam of each, about 1" apart. Slice about 1/2" off of each end of the tortilla and discard. Repeat the process with remaining tortillas.
Slice each tortilla between each sandwich pick, creating pinwheels. Serve.
