  • 1 Wholly Gluten Free Pizza Dough Ball
  • 3-4 tbsp Basil Pesto
  • 1 Cup Mozzarella
  • 3 tsp Olive Oil (to brush)


  • Preheat oven to 350° 
  • Roll out the Wholly Wholesome Gluten Free Pizza Dough Ball with a rolling pin on a worktop into a rectangle. Cut in half to make two small rectangles. 
  • Start spreading the pesto on top of the rolled-out dough. Make sure to leave a little space on the edge. Add the chopped mozzarella on top, if desired. 
  • Roll the rectangle lengthwise. 
  • Lay dough on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet. If it doesn’t fit exactly right, lay it diagonal. 
  • Cut the dough in half, lengthwise.
  • Turn both halves of the dough with the cut side up and then start braiding.
  • Keep in one long braided line or wrap it all the way around to make a circle.
  • Brush the top with a small amount of olive oil.
  • Add a little more chopped mozzarella on top, if desired.
  • Bake for about 30 min.
