"I thought the dough was hard to work with and roll out; might use the Pillsbury Pizza Dough next time. Also thought about changing up the ingredients b/c my 17 y/o, who doesn't normally have a picky pallet, didn't care for the pesto. Thinking about doing just pizza sauce, pepperoni, sausage, and mozzarella cheese. My husband and I really enjoyed it."

"Delicious! You can easily change the meat, cheese to your liking - make a different stromboli each time! I think the pesto is my favorite part of it.

I made my own pizza dough from my bread machine."

"This is a very tasty recipe. I used Pillsbury Pizza Crust instead of the dough because I have a hard time working with the bread dough. That also made it easier to make only one instead of 2."

"This recipe was awesome! Perfect cold day lunch, with a nice bowl of soup. And it is so easily adapted to your preference - I made it once with all ingredients suggested, once with salami and american and then with meatballs and parmesan cheese and all were top notch!"
