Easy Ham and Cheese Pie

Easy Ham and Cheese Pie

Extremely delicious, this pie can be a beautiful appetizer, a good option for a picnic or when travelling, or to share with colleagues at work :) Sofia really liked it, she told me it was like a giant sandwich.

The pastry is a bit more interesting as it's got yeast in it and a softer texture. The poppy and sesame seeds on top are suitable and give an extra taste. And they look beautifully.

I would call it low-cost, but it has a large amount of cheese and ham, which are not really cheap. The quantities of ingredients were adapted for a large oven sheet and I don't regret making such a large pie, it got eaten quickly :)


400 ml
Bakers yeast
25 g
or 10g dried yeast
White flour
600 g
4 pieces
Sunflower oil
160 ml
Semolina flour
2 tbsp
1 tsp
Smoked ham
500 g
or salami, sausages - anything you like
Yellow cheese
300 g
Sesame/poppy seeds
2 tbsp

Step by step

Step 1

Combine the yeast with warm milk, mix.

Measure the right amount of flour, place in a bowl, then add here the milk with the yeast, eggs, oil, salt.

Mix well with a whisk or spoon until there are no lumps.

Step 2

You will have a rather thick batter, like the sour cream.

Line an oven sheet with baking paper.

Pour half of the batter and smooth out. Sprinkle with semolina over the entire surface.

Step 4

Arrange thin slices of ham over the batter (it will help a lot if you buy already sliced ham).

Step 5

Next comes a layer of grated cheese, using the largest shredding holes. 

Over the cheese, there should be another layer of ham. I didn't have any more left, so my pie only had one layer of ham + one layer of cheese. If you have enough, I recommend putting the last ham layer, as well.

Then pour the remaining batter over the entire surface and carefully spread with a spoon, to perfectly cover the filling.
