I saw this great recipe for Josephinas and I was really in the mood for a yummy bread recipe but the Josephinas didn't really go with what I was serving for dinner. So I decided to alter it with a mediterranean theme. Im happy with how it turned out but if the pesto is too strong, you might want to cut the pesto down to 1/2 cup and add 1/2 cup of mayo.
