Ingredients:

  •  1/2 pound fully cooked corned beef, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  •  1 tablespoon butter
  •  1/2 cup chopped onion
  •  1 1/2 cups frozen cut broccoli, defrosted
  •  1 cup (4ounces) shredded Swiss cheese

  •  1 package (10 ounces) refrigerated pizza dough
  •  2 tablespoons prepared Thousand Island dressing
