  • 1 package refrigerator Pizza dough
  • 2 to 3 cups cubed ham
  • 1 cup Pepper jack cheese
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1/3 cup dried parmesan cheese (canned)
Mustard Dip
  • 3 Tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1/4 Cup sour cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Get all your ingredients ready.

    Make up the mustard dip by mixing all the ingredients together until well blended.

    Give the ham a quick sear in a heavy skillet. It helps to bring out the flavor.

  2. Cut the pizza dough into quarters.

  3. On the edge of each square, place 1/4 of the ham, cheese and a tablespoon or two of the mustard mixture.

  4. Fold the dough over and pinch the edges to seal (make sure you've sealed it well).

  5. Place on a baking sheet that is very lightly oiled.

  6. Brush the top of each with the melted butter then sprinkle with some parmesan cheese.

  7. Bake at 350° for about 20 minutes, or until the dough is browned and golden.

  8. Remove from oven and  allow to cool a little before eating - there is a lot of steam inside that will burn you!

  9. Serve with pickles on the side (you can also chop them up and put them inside!)
