Clue Night Reuben Loaf
My family loves Reubens but making so many sandwiches at once became daunting. So I came up with this recipe that serves several people. —Laura M. Hagadorn, North Creek, New York
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 35 min.

- 1-1/2 cups sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained

- 1 tablespoon cold water
- On a greased baking sheet, roll pizza dough into a 15x12-in. rectangle. Arrange pastrami down the center third of rectangle; spread with dressing. Top with cheese and sauerkraut.
