Cut off the two heels of the baguette and cut the baguette into two 10-inch lengths. Cut each in half horizontally. Spread each half with 1 teaspoon pesto. Evenly layer the sopressata on each bottom. Cut the roasted peppers to lay flat. Arrange the roasted peppers over the salami. Top with a layer of the provolone. Place top on sandwich. Cut in half crosswise to make 4 sandwiches total. Preheat the Cuisinart™ Griddler in the closed grill position to 375°F. When Griddler is ready, open and place the sandwiches on the bottom grill plate. Close Griddler and press lightly on the handle for 30 seconds. Grill for 5 minutes, until the bread is golden, toasty and well marked, the filling is warm and cheese is melted. Serve warm.
