Expert Tips

*All breads made with at least 8 grams whole grain. At least 48 grams whole grain recommended daily.

Use purchased pesto, found near the refrigerated pastas in your supermarket.

Chopped roasted garlic in water, available in jars, is a great convenience item to keep on hand. You can also use fresh garlic, or roast your own.

Prebake the crust for only a few minutes to allow the potatoes to get perfectly done without overbrowning the crust.
