Ham & Cheese Roll Ups Recipe

Servings: About 12 roll-ups


1 pound pizza dough (homemade or store-bought)

12 slices smoked ham (thinly sliced)

1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese


Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

On a floured surface, roll out the pizza dough into a 1/4-inch-thick rectangle.

Lay the ham slices over the dough, leaving a small border around the edges.

Evenly spread the shredded cheese over the ham.

Roll the dough tightly from a long edge, as you would a jelly roll.

Cut the log into 1-inch sections and place them on the baking sheet.

Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown and the cheese is bubbly.

Let cool slightly before serving.

Variations & Tips:

Add red pepper flakes or hot sauce to the cheese for a spicy kick.

Experiment with different cheeses like Gruyere, Swiss, or smoked provolone.

For a vegetarian version, use sautéed spinach and mushrooms (drained of moisture) instead of ham.

Brush the tops with melted butter and garlic powder before baking for extra indulgence.

Let the dough rest at room temperature for easier handling.

Feel free to customize these roll-ups with your favorite ingredients, keeping in mind not to overstuff them. Enjoy the process and the delicious result of this simple, yet delightful dish!
