Stromboli Sandwich with Ham
I have been looking for a similar sandwich in Italian restaurants ever since then and I finally had to admit the search was in vain because what I remember was unique and not authentic Italian.
Here is my version based on others I have tried, not close to the one I searched for, but I still think its very good.

1Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Stir together pizza sauce, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
Using your hands stretch pizza crust out to a rectangle approximate 9 by 13 inches. Lay on ungreased cookie sheet.
2Spread pizza sauce on crust. Place ham and cheese on next, spreading evenly. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese on top of all.
Roll up tightly from a short side. Pinch seam to seal. Place seam side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush top of loaf with butter. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese.
3Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Cut with a serrated knife.
You can add mushrooms or green peppers, whatever you like on pizza. If you add more that 1/4 cup ingredients you may need to bakea bit longer.
