This is tasty and so easy to make - a great idea when you don't have a lot of time to get dinner on the table. I heated up some red sauce for dipping, and we were happy!

Made this after Liza's suggestion in her blog and I was so happy with the results. I used some pizza dough from Trader Joe's and poked a few holes in the top to let some steam escape. The leftovers are greated heated in the microwave too!

Very easy recipe and easy to modify! I used turkey, ham, mozzarella and provolone and added red onions and sun dried tomatoes to the pesto. Very quick to put together and DH was very impressed!

Great kid pleaser and can't be easier. For me and my husband, I added red pepper, feta, spinach. For my toddler, I used red sauce instead of pesto.

We made this for lunch today, I used puff pastry instead of the pizza dough and sprinkled italian spices on top and a bit of parmesan, it was an excellent lunch

Wow, wow, wow, wow! So delicious!!! I used Simple Roasted Garlic Pesto that I had in the freezer, with 8 oz peppered turkey, and havarti instead of provolone (it was what I had on hand). I baked on parchment paper and left them for a few extra minutes to get fully browned. All but one leaked pesto just a bit but for the most part they held together well. Thanks for sharing - will definitely be made again!

This is a great recipe. The nutritional info is way off though. 600 calories per serving as is. I reduced the cheese and turkey to 2 slices of each. This is with a pillsbury pizza crust, sliced provolone and turkey lunch meat. It was difficult for me to seal it even with 2 slices of each.

This was awesome! My husband and I just loved it. I can't wait to have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Fast, easy and great taste - what more can you ask for?

This was one of the easiest, most delicious recipes I've tried. It's also very easy to modify to suit to taste. The Mad Scientist's only complaint is that there wasn't enough for the next day, so I'll need to double the recipe.
