Ham & Swiss With A Twist

I live in an area that gets pretty warm in the Spring & Summer. Well, the truth is it gets HOT!! So warm in fact that playing outside July, August, and September are pretty much off limits. This time of year I seem to crave either a big salad for dinner or a bowl of cereal and not much else. The past couple of days have been actually quite nice, a bit below the normal temperatures for this time of year. I decided it would be okay to fire up the oven to make this recipe that I found in Woman's Day magazine.

My husband loves his ham. Next to steak, it would be his meat of choice. This is a great way to use up leftover ham or even deli lunch meat ham from the grocery store. This is quick and easy to make. You just pair your ham with pizza dough for a savory supper that rolls right over its sandwich competition. You can either make your own pizza dough or buy the canned kind. I used my pizza dough recipe that you can find HERE. Add a salad or some fruit, we had watermelon, to round out this meal. I hope you enjoy and have a great weekend.

Ham & Swiss With A Twist

1 lb pizza dough (I used THIS recipe)
1 Tbsp whole grain mustard
1/2 lb thinly sliced ham
1/4 lb thinly sliced Swiss cheese
1/2 small onion, thinly sliced into rings

Heat oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll the pizza dough into a large circle and spread with the mustard. Cut the dough into 8 triangles. Divide the ham, cheese, and onions among the triangles. Starting at the wide end, roll the dough around the filling (some of the filling will stick out).

Transfer the rolls to the prepared baking sheet and bake until golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Serve warm!

*The rolls can be prepared and refrigerated (unbaked) for up to 1 day.
