Ham and Cheese Braid

I made this for dinner the other night. Had a craving for pizza but wanted something a little different and this fit the bill perfectly.

Ham and Cheese Braid
1 loaf premade bread or pizza dough (I used this recipe)
1 container veggie cream cheese
1 - 16oz pkg deli ham (could use turkey)
1 1/2 C shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Prepare dough for pizza.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Once rolled out to desired size top with cream cheese. Add as little or as much as you want. I added extra because it's just that good.
Top wtih ham slices. again add as little or as much as you want.

Top wtih cheese.

At this point take a pizza cutter and begin cutting slits on each side of loaf. this will help give braided affect.
top with a bit more cheese.

Place braid on foil lined baking sheet and bake in oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted.
(ignore the fact that mine didn't get too brown on top)

Eat with favorite side and it's really good dipped in ranch dressing (my husband did this for he likes most things with a side of ranch)
