1 recipe of Pizza dough (Pillsbury Pizza in a tube will do fine)
3-4 Tbsp. Pesto
4-6 slices Deli Ham (I buy Boar’s Head brand deli meats)
4-6 slices Sharp Provolone Cheese (also Boar’s head)
6-8 slices Hot Cappicola
2-3 Roasted Bell Peppers (jarred is ok, I make my own)
1 Egg White, beaten
Preheat the oven to 400º
Roll out the Pizza dough into a rectangle 24″ X 12″, with the longer side closest to you
Spread the Pesto on the dough, stopping 2 inches from the edges
Place a layer of cheese, then the meats and lastly the peppers, again stopping 2 inches from the edges
Start to roll the dough into a log with the edge closest to you
Roll as tightly as you can
Pinch the edge into the log as well as the ends
On a sheet pan, sprinkle some Cornmeal and place the log seam side down onto the pan.
Brush with the beaten Egg White and bake for 20-25 minutes, it should be very firm.
Allow to cool completely.
Slice as desired with a serrated knife.
*This is terrific as an appetizer for a party, an after-school snack, lunch with a side salad; it can be served at room temperature or cold.
My SIL put in Pepperoncinis, we are not fans. I think next time I'll try some Hot Cherry Peppers, diced, rather than the roasted Red Peppers. Maybe Roast Beef or Turkey breast; Swiss cheese or Cheddar?
The sky's the limits.
A recipe is just one else's idea.
