Preparation of the Cheese and ham bread roll

  1. Let’s start with the dough! Knead all the ingredients together, form a dough ball and let it rest covered for at least 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile prepare the filling. Sauté the diced cooked ham in a pan with a few tablespoons of oil and a sprig of rosemary. Mix the ham with the ricotta cheese, chopped mozzarella and grated Caciocavallo cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Roll out the dough to form a 40x50cm rectangle and let it rest for another 30 minutes.

Spread the filling by forming a rib along the longest side of the rectangle 2cm from the edge and fold it over the filling. Create another rib next to it and continue in this way to obtain a large stuffed cylinder.


Put in a baking dish, brush the surface with oil and bake in a static oven preheated to 180°C for 40 minutes.
