Ingredients

2 cups (8 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
15-ounce carton ricotta 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

Instructions

In a large bowl, combine the cheeses, ham or pepperoni and garlic powder, mixing well. Divide each loaf into eight pieces. On a floured surface, roll each portion into a 5-inch circle. Place filling in the center of each circle. Bring dough over the filling, pinching the seams to seal. Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with sauce, if desired. Refrigerate any leftovers. Makes 16 servings.
