recipe from Celebrations With Carmela's Cucina by Carmela Hobbins 
I added a few ideas
  • 1 carton of refrigerated pizza dough (try Pillsbury)
  • 1/4 -1/2 lbs. of your choice Italian deli meats, thinly sliced (combinations salami, turkey, ham or pepperoni)
  • 1/4-1/2 lbs. your choice of Italian cheese, thinly sliced ( try Provolone, Mozzarella or Swiss) 
  • 1/2 cup prepared pesto sauce (could substitute pizza sauce for pesto)
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • marinara sauce for dipping
  • Unroll pizza dough onto a jelly roll pan lined with parchment paper. 
  • Spread 1/2 cup of prepared pesto onto dough down the middle. 
  • Layer meats and cheese on top of the pesto or pizza sauce
  • Carefully roll the pizza dough from the long end jelly-roll style making sure the seam is on the bottom and ends are tucked under well
  •  Brush the top with the melted butter
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until golden brown and pizza crust is done
  • Let rest 5- 10 minutes on cutting board and then cut into slices on the diagonal and place on a platter
  • Serve with prepared marina sauce
some other suggested fillings include: olives, onions, tomatoes, sliced peppers
