These are a throwback from my high school cafeteria that i started re-creating a few years ago. This is a quick and dirty writeup for the inquiring minds of twitter.

Ham & Cheese Rollups

Course: Main Course
Keyword: cheese


  • Your favorite pizza/bread dough I will get the balls of pre-made pizza dough at the store to make this even easier
  • 2 c. shredded cheese Cheddar, Swiss, Gruyere, any of ’em will work
  • 1 c. finely cubed ham or just sliced ham chopped finely would work too
  • 1-2 T. butter melted


  • Heat oven to 350°. Lightly grease an 8″ square or round baking pan with butter or cooking spray (you can also cook in a lightly greased cast iron skillet).
  • Roll out the dough into a rectangle (12″x18″). Brush the dough with the melted butter. Sprinkle with the shredded cheese and then the ham. Be sure to cover the dough all the way to the edges. I usually leave a 1″ edge at the top though. Roll up from the bottom to the top, pinching to seal the top edge. Cut roll into 2″ slices.
  • Place slices into greased pan. Sprinkle with a little additional cheese, if you feel the need (I almost always do). Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
