Ingredients

  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

  • 6 ounces diced fully cooked ham or sliced pepperoni
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 loaves (1 pound each) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • Warmed spaghetti or pizza sauce, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the cheeses, ham and garlic powder. Divide each loaf into eight pieces.
  • 2. On a floured surface, roll each portion into a 5-in. circle. Place filling in the center of each circle. Bring dough over filling; pinch seams to seal.
