Easy Ham and Cheese Roll-Ups

Hot ham and cheddar cheese all wrapped up in a little pinwheel.  Delightfully simple and delicious, too!
Ham and Cheese Roll-Ups
1 can refrigerated pizza crust or 20 minute bread dough
1/2 pound deli sliced ham (5-10 pieces)
2 cups cheddar cheese (or less, as desired)

Unroll pizza crust onto a floured surface.  I used floured parchment paper because the dough is very sticky.  Place ham in a single layer over the dough.  (If you like a lot of ham you can overlap some.)  Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top.

Roll dough into a "jelly roll" beginning on a long end.  Pinch dough together at the seam (as pictured).  Cut the rolled dough into twelve equal pieces.  Place roll ups, about an inch or two apart, on a greased baking sheet or parchment paper.  Bake at 350° for 14-19 minutes.  Tops should be slightly brown.   

Edited: Minced onion and bacon pieces make a tasty variation!
I was inspired by this recipe which uses homemade dough, but needed to keep my Ham and Cheese Roll-Ups easy.  

Please Note:
~  These really are super easy!  
~ You could also sprinkle some chopped onion with the cheese.  Easily adaptable!
~ I served these warm, but they could be served cold.
~ Breakfast, anyone?  My stepmom had the idea to take them to a ladies' breakfast.
~ The parchment paper made the cheese super easy to clean!

Enjoy!!  

What would you put in a roll up?
