Preheat the oven to 425°F.
Spray 2 baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray.
On a lightly floured surface, cut the dough into 6 equal pieces.
Roll each piece into a 6-inch circle.
In a small bowl, blend the marinara sauce with the tomato paste and basil.
Leaving a 1/2-inch border, spread the sauce over half of each dough circle.
Then sprinkle with the ham, cheese and vegetables.
Moisten the edges of the dough with a little water, fold the dough over filling and seal with a fork.
Place on the baking sheets.
Bake at 450°F for 10 minutes.
