Hi everyone! My name is Kacey and I am here today from my food blog, The Cookie Writer, to share with you something special just for Andi’s readers! I am so happy to be a contributor here at The Weary Chef, and I hope you love this leftover ham pizza as much as my family did.

After the holidays we often see a ton of leftover food. It is no wonder seeing as everyone brings something to the table (and prepares a dinner-sized portion of each item)! In our family, it is not uncommon to see a lot of ham hanging around. It is a cheap, versatile meat that speaks to many.

Personally, I think ham is great in split pea soup, but we wanted to take it a step further this time around. Seeing as I do not eat meat myself, it was only my husband and daughter trying to devour a 6.5 lb ham themselves. What was I to do with the herb crusted ham in the slow cooker after so many days of eating the same meal?! Well, my friends, say hello to this easy, leftover ham pizza!

I prefer making everything homemade (which includes the sauce and dough,) but I know many do not have the time for that. That’s why this recipe is so awesome! Store-bought pizza sauce and pizza dough work perfectly here, and all that is left for you to do is slice up your ham, a large onion, and some mozzarella cheese! Talk about quick and easy!

You can easily get creative with your toppings. While our leftover ham pizza only contained onions, I think a mix of bright peppers and mushrooms would work perfectly here. Basically when I make pizza, I like to clean out my fridge with any veggies that are needing to be used up :) Who doesn’t love a new way to use up leftovers?! Oh! If you decide to go with store-bought dough to save time, remember to follow their instructions accordingly (but it really shouldn’t be too different than what I have listed.) I would love to have a pizza stone on hand, but my pizza pan works perfectly for our pizza nights :)

Leftover Ham and Cheese Pizza

This leftover ham pizza can be made using store-bought ingredients, but just remember to adjust cooking time accordingly to your dough’s instructions!

  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x




  1. Preheat oven to 475F. Lightly dust your counter-top in flour.
  2. Using a rolling pin, roll out your pizza dough until desired size and thickness is reached. Carefully transfer to pizza pan and adjust accordingly.
  3. Spread your sauce to about 1-inch from the edge of the pizza dough. That uncovered part will be your crust. Evenly spread out the ham and onion. Finish off with mozzarella cheese.
  4. Place into oven and bake for 15-17 minutes, or until mozzarella cheese is nicely browned and crust is golden.
  5. Allow to cool slightly before cutting!

Yum! I think we are going to be freezing some of our ham leftovers (since we’ve been eating them for days)…this may have to go on the menu in a week or two when I am ready for more ham! It looks delicious!

What an great idea for using up leftover ham, Kacey! We eat pizza once a week and are always changing it up so that we don’t get bored…and I just happen to have a bunch of leftover ham hanging out in the fridge. Guess what’s going on the pizzas this week? ;)
