Pizza Loaf/Ham & Cheddar Loaf

I originally came across this recipe for a ham and cheddar loaf many years ago. We really liked it but quickly we started to think of how great it would be with pizza toppings. Ever since it's been a meal that we make often!


1 pound frozen pizza dough, thawed
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
Flour for rolling


Pizza Loaf - 1/2 cup pizza sauce, 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, and pizza toppings of your choice (I use pepperoni, mushrooms, onion, green olives).

Ham & Cheddar Loaf - 9 ounces shaved ham, 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, and 1/4 cup miracle whip.


Roll out dough on a floured surface.

Pizza Loaf: top with pizza sauce leaving a border around all sides. Next, top with cheese and any pizza toppings you would like to add.

Ham & Cheddar Loaf: top with ham (overlapping slices). Leave a border around all sides. Mix cheddar cheese and dressing. Spread/crumble over ham.

Moisten edges of the dough with water. Fold 1/3 of the dough over the filling then repeat with the other side. Pinch ends of the dough together to seal. Place seam side down on a lightly greased baking sheet (I use a foil lined pan instead for easy clean up).

Cut small slits in the top of the dough. Brush evenly with egg. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Let cool for a little while before serving.

Some other things we have added to our pizza roll:
• Oregano or pizza seasoning in with the toppings
• Sprinkle with garlic powder on the outside of the dough.

The possibilities are endless!
