Turn on grill to high temperature. Slice bread lengthwise and open up. Drizzle with olive oil and set aside. In a small blender/chopper, blend basil leaves with two tablespoons of olive oil to make pesto spread. Slice tomatoes and Fresh Mozzarella Cheese into 1/4 inch thick slices. Drizzle filets with olive oil, and dust with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium and grill filets for 2 ½ minutes per side to medium-rare. Slightly toast the rolls on grill and add cheese to filets to melt. Remove rolls, spread with a thick layer of pesto and tomatoes. Add steak with cheese and top with the other half of roll. Cut in half and serve.
