  6. On each sheet pan, spread one-fourth of the pizza sauce mixture on top of each of the prepared pans.
  7. Lay-out 2 lbs 8 oz. of turkey ham on each of the pans.
  8. Top each sheet pan with 2 lbs. of cheese. Spread cheese evenly.
  9. Roll-out remaining bread dough balls to fit over the tops of the pan. Lay on top of cheese layer. Stretch dough to fit to the edge of the pans and crimp.
  10. Prick the top layer of dough with a large meat fork to allow for air expansion. Brush dough with an egg wash, or spray with pan release spray before baking. Sprinkle top with Italian seasonings (optional).
