Have you ever had a day where you just want to eat something really good but with a twist? We do that here a lot! I take something that I know we LOVE and add twists to it. Like ham and cheese sandwiches. The regular ham and cheese sandwich on bread or a grilled cheese are the classic versions of this. Here is our twist on the famous combo. It is a FAV here!
2 1/4 tsp (one packet) Active dry yeast1 cup Warm water (110 -115 degrees)
1 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Salt
2 tbs Oil
3 1/2 cups Flour (I used unbleached flour)
Rolling pin (optional)
1 Egg (beaten)
Ham (Your choice of ham. Can be freshly sliced ham from a ham you roasted or lunch meat you bought at your favorite deli)
Cheese (Your choice again. Sliced or shredded. What ever kind you want)
Anything else you want to add. (tomatoes, greens, onions, fruit, etc)
Cookie sheet / pizza pan / baking stone
Dissolve yeast in the warm water.
Add sugar, salt, oil to the yeast.
Add the flour.
Knead until it forms a dough ball.
Let dough rise for 30 minutes (dough will double in size)
Punch down the dough. My family fights over who gets to punch it!
Begin to knead and work with the dough until you get it into the shape and thickness you want for your crust. I use my finger tips a lot for this process.
You can also use the rolling pin you got for Xmas too if you want.
Once you get the crust to the thickness you want, lay it out on the pan.
Now layer your ingredients on it.
Gently fold the crust in half.
Seal the edges of the crust.
Baste with the egg on top.
Bake at 350 until golden brown.
