  1. Put all the ingredients together (except pesto sauce and cheese) in a bread machine.
  2. Set the machine to "Dough/Pasta" and let the machine take care of kneading .

  4. Spread pestro sauce and sprinkle cheese.
  5. Roll up the dough.
  6. Sprinkle 1/4 cup cornmeal over the pizza stone or a cookie sheet.Place the rolls.

  9. Bake at 420° for 13 min. and cover the rolls with a sheet of aluminum foil (This prevents rolls to become too dark.) and continue to bake 5 min. more.
