  2. Spread pesto evenly over all of the dough, right up to the edges.
  3. Top with salami, then chicken and mozzarella. Sprinkler with basil and oregano. Press toppings gently into the dough.
  4. Starting at the short end of the dough, roll up the dough into a log. Seal the seam by pinching the dough together along the seam. Chill for 25-30 minutes.

  6. Using a sharp knife, cut the log into 6 rolls.
