So much goodness and so easy to make with 3 ingredients!


Ham & Cheese Roll-Ups Recipe

These Ham & Cheese Roll-Ups, crafted from just three essential ingredients and wrapped in pizza dough, are a testament to the joy of simplicity in the kitchen. Perfect for those moments when time is of the essence but the craving for something homemade and comforting won’t subside, this recipe merges the ease of preparation with the timeless appeal of ham and cheese. Whether you’re gathering friends for a casual get-together or seeking a satisfying snack, these roll-ups promise to please without the hassle.


  • 1 pound pizza dough (homemade or store-bought, brought to room temperature for easier handling)
  • 12 slices smoked ham (thinly sliced for easy rolling)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese (or experiment with Gruyere, Swiss, or smoked provolone for different flavors)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper for a non-stick surface.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pizza dough into a rectangle, aiming for about 1/4-inch thickness. This will be your base for the roll-ups.
  3. Lay the ham slices evenly across the dough, leaving a small border around the edges to ensure a tight roll. Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the ham, creating a layer of melty goodness.
  4. Carefully roll the dough from one of the long edges, similar to making a jelly roll. Ensure the roll is tight so the fillings stay snug within.
  5. With a sharp knife, cut the log into 1-inch sections. This will form your individual roll-ups. Place them cut side up on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Transfer the baking sheet to the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the roll-ups are golden brown and the cheese is bubbly.
  7. Allow the roll-ups to cool slightly on a wire rack before serving to let the cheese set slightly.

Variations & Tips:

  • Spice It Up: Incorporate red pepper flakes or a dash of hot sauce into the cheese for guests who appreciate a spicy twist.
  • Vegetarian Option: For a meat-free variation, replace the ham with sautéed spinach and mushrooms, ensuring they’re well-drained to avoid soggy dough.
  • Garlic Butter Finish: For an extra layer of flavor, brush the roll-ups with melted butter mixed with garlic powder before baking.
  • Resting Dough: If you’re working with refrigerated dough, let it sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before rolling out. This makes it easier to handle and shape.

Enjoy your delicious Ham & Cheese Roll-Ups!
