“Forget about ordering in! These hearty stuffed "pizzas", filled with smoky ham and cheese are less expensive than take-out and a snap to bake. Just stock up on prepared pizza dough-readily available in the refrigerated or frozen food sections of the supermarkets.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 (213 ml) can pizza sauce
  • 1 lb prepared fresh pizza dough or 1 lb frozen pizza dough, thawed
  • 8 ounces sliced baked ham


  1. Heat oven to 425°F.
  2. Lightly grease 2 jellyroll pans.
  3. Place dough onto lightly floured surface.
  4. Divide into 4 equal pieces; shape each into ball into a 7-inch circle.
  5. Divide and spread pizza sauce evenly over each circle.
