Thank you for reviewing this recipe.


Delicioso!!! Mmmmmmm!!!

I'm always improvising so on 1/2 of the rolled out dough I followed directions. On the other half I spread olive oil, then I layered lots of Italian parsley, then sharp provolone and leftover ham. Since it was my first time making this, it was a treat. We all liked both breads but your recipe with the pesto was the favorite. Yes, I got calls for encores as the family loved it. 5 Stars!!!
