should try with just pizza dough and whatever i like - tomato and cheese, oregano? Pesto Bread - my take included leftover pesto from a jar & a tube of pillsbury simple french bread loaf. unroll loaf, spread pesto. cut into 8 equal sections. grease pan and place in like a cinnamon bun. bake per instructions. brushed w/butter when i pulled them out of the oven. DELISH!
