Delectable filling includes a combination of
caramelized onion, sweet ham, mozzarella,
parmesan, parsley and a white sauce.

Yields: (8 Hand Pies)
Prep: 30 Mins. (Not including pizza dough 1-Hr/10-Mins. prep/rise time)
Bake: 30 Mins.

2 teaspoons olive oil, plus more for drizzling
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
Pinch of sugar
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 recipe of homemade pizza dough
All-purpose flour, for dusting
2-1⁄4 cups shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup finley chopped sweet, cooked ham
2 tbsp. finely chopped fresh parsley
homemade ranch dressing
3 tablespoons homemade ranch dressing, plus more for dipping when serving
1⁄2 cup shaved parmesan

-- Egg wash:
1 large egg slightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon water

-- Coarse kosher salt, sprinkle tops before baking


If previously refrigerated, make sure pizza dough is at room temperature (takes about 1 hour).

Meanwhile, heat 2 teaspoons olive oil a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, sugar, salt, and pepper, and reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until caramelized, about 30 minutes, let cool. [Can easily be prepared ahead of time.]

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

Dust work surface and dough lightly with flour. Using a rolling pin, roll dough into a rectangle large enough to cut out 16 squares about 1⁄4" thick. Use a 3-1/2" square cutter, or knife, to cut dough into squares. If dough becomes hard to roll, simply let it rest 10 minutes, then continue working it.

Brush olive oil over center (not edges) of half of the square bottom sections. Dividing ingredients equally among half of the squares without over-filling - sprinkle each with half the mozzarella. Top with ham, caramelized onion, and parsley; drizzle with ranch dressing. Sprinkle remaining mozzarella and the parmesan over top of each. Place top of squares over filled bottom squares, press edges to initially adhere with fingertips, then with a fork tines to completely seal.  Brush center of tops of pizza pies with egg wash mixture. Finish tops with a light sprinkle of kosher salt.

To cook the pizza hand pies, place pies on prepared baking sheet, cut two small slits on top of each (to vent steam while baking). Bake until crusts are puffed and golden, about 30 minutes. Let set for 5 minutes before serving. ~ Enjoy!

Feel free to substitute the ham with finely diced chicken or turkey, that's divine too!
