Yield: 8 servings.

2 tubes (10 ounces each) refrigerated pizza crust
1 cup light ricotta cheese
2 cups diced fully cooked low-fat ham
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
Dried basil
Shredded Parmesan cheese, optional
Meatless spaghetti sauce, warmed, optional

Unroll one pizza crust, stretching gently to make a 14-in. x 11-in. rectangle_ Spread half of the ricotta on half of the dough lengthwise, to within 1 in. of the edges. Sprinkle with half of the ham and mozzarella. Fold unfilled side of dough over filled half and press edges together firmly to seal. Transfer to a baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray. Repeat with remaining crust and filling ingredients. Bake at 400º for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with basil and Parmesan if desired. Slice into serving-size pieces. Serve with spaghetti sauce for dipping if desired.
