Baked Cheesy Ham Deli Sandwich

I am often on the prowl to find good meals for lunch.  This meal definitely qualified as good, as I gobbled it up at work. You can serve with marinara sauce or eat by itself, like I do. Easy to make and can eat it for a few days.  Also, try it with different toppings inside for many more yummy lunches.


1 loaf (1 pound) bread dough or wheat pizza dough
1 1/2 tablespoons light butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon basil, chopped
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 pound sliced deli ham, reduced sodium
6 thin slices part-skim mozzarella cheese
6 thin slices cheddar cheese
Marinara sauce, warmed, optional


  • On a baking sheet coated with cooking spray, roll dough into a small rectangle. Let rest for 5-10 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, combine the butter and seasonings. Roll out dough into a 14-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Brush with half of the butter mixture. Layer ham, mozzarella cheese, turkey and cheddar cheese lengthwise over half of the dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Fold dough over and pinch firmly to seal. Brush with remaining butter mixture.
  • Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into 8  1-in. slices. Serve immediately with pizza sauce if desired.
