1 lb Bakery pizza dough
1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
Olive oil cooking spray
Flour (for rolling dough)
1/4 cup+ 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
2 tablespoons basil pesto
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Tomato-basil pasta sauce (optional)

•    Remove dough from refrigerator and let stand 1 hour (do not remove from bag until stand time completed).

1.    Cut cream cheese into small chunks; place in bowl to soften. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat baking sheet with spray. Flour hands lightly; turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a 13- x 9-inch rectangle.
2.    Stir into cream cheese: 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, pesto, salt, and pepper; spread over dough leaving a 1-inch border. Place dough on baking sheet. Starting with a long side, roll into a log, sealing the long edge. Use a pizza cutter or sharp knife to split the dough in half lengthwise. Place the 2 halves, cut-side up, side by side; twist or "braid" the two logs, then pinch the ends to seal.
3.    Coat the dough with spray and 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden. Let stand 5 minutes to rest. Coat with spray and remaining 1 tablespoon cheese. Serve with pasta sauce, if desired. (Makes 8 servings.)
