  • 1/2 pound sliced Swiss cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained

  • On a greased baking sheet, roll pizza dough into a 15-in. x 12-in.
  • rectangle. Arrange pastrami down the center third of rectangle;
  • spread with dressing. Top with cheese and sauerkraut.
  • On each long side, cut 1-in.-wide strips about 1/2 in. into center.
