Mini-Recipe: Ham and Cheese Pinwheels

My fave pizza dough recipe makes enough for 2 pizzas... we had pizza last night, but didn't want to make a second one today. Enter Ham and Cheese Pinwheels. Totally easy, totally good! We made a salad and called these dinner (and a snack, but who's counting.)

Ham and Cheese Pinwheels
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees

1/2 recipe Pizza Dough
1 cup shredded cheese (I used cheddar, but pepper jack, Swiss, or Parmesan would be good) 
1/2 cup chopped ham (I used deli sliced ham, but I think turkey would be good too)
1 tablespoon butter - divided: 1/2 tablespoon for buttering the dough, 1/2 tablespoon for greasing the pan 

Roll out pizza dough very thin (mine was cold from storing in the fridge overnight and it was fine) and spread a very thin layer of butter all over. Sprinkle cheese and ham over the entire dough and roll it up tight. 

Slice the roll into 1 1/2 inch slices and arrange in a buttered baking dish. Let the rolls rest and puff up for about 15 minutes and then bake for about 25 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.

Eat and enjoy!
