Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon crushed garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, garlic, and Italian seasoning.

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pizza dough into a 12-inch square. Brush the entire surface with the seasoned olive oil. Top with 1 cup of shredded cheese and an even layer of ham. (Reserve the extra cheese and ham for Round 2 Ham and Cheese Croquettes.)

  • Starting from the bottom edge, tightly roll up the dough to form a log. Using a sharp serrated knife, slice the roll on the bias into 1-inch thick pieces. Arrange the rolls on their side on a nonstick or lightly oiled baking sheet. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes to proof.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg with 2 tablespoons of water. Brush the tops and sides of the rolls with the egg wash. Bake until golden brown, about 30 to 35 minutes.

  • Remove from the oven, transfer to a serving platter and serve.
