Cook: 15 minutes
1/2 cup self-rising flour
1/2 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
1 slice reduced-fat Swiss cheese, halved
1 1/2 oz. (about 2 slices) reduced-sodium ham, roughly chopped
2 tsp. mustard
2 tbsp. chopped dill pickles
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
To make the dough, thoroughly mix flour and yogurt in a large bowl.
Form dough into two 6-inch squares, about 1/4 inch thick.
Place on the baking sheet. Evenly top one half of each square with cheese, chopped ham, mustard, and pickles.
Fold the bare half of each square over the filling, so the top edge meets the bottom. Firmly press edges with a fork to seal.
Spray with nonstick spray. Bake until tops are light golden brown and insides are cooked through, 10 - 12 minutes.

SmartPoints® value* not what you expected? We follow the same method as WW (formerly known as Weight Watchers) when calculating the value of a recipe: We add up the SmartPoints® values* of the individual ingredients using the Recipe Builder, not the calculator. (Many foods have a value of zero and remain zero in recipes.)
*The SmartPoints® values for these products and/or recipes were calculated by Hungry Girl and are not an endorsement or approval of the product, recipe or its manufacturer or developer by WW International, Inc., the owner of the SmartPoints® trademark.
