Servings : Makes 8 Roses
A small twist on my famous Rose Rolls, these are what I now call Pizza Roses!! Gorgeous soft flowery rolls with a deliciously satisfying cheesy chicken filling, they taste just like rolled up pizzas and are so delicious especially when warm.

- pizza sauce - recipe link in instructions
- spicy chicken filling - recipe link in instructions
- mozzarella & cheddar cheese, grated
- 1 egg yolk, beaten with 1 tbsp milk
- sesame seeds
For the dough, I used my basic pizza dough. You can use the same dough as the Rose Rolls, but I find this dough works best with a cheesy filling as it is a lighter-textured dough (no egg added to it).
Here is the dough recipe: Pizza Dough (Makes 8 Pizza Roses)
The procedure for shaping the roses is exactly the same as before, with just a few extra touches. You can check the step by step pic here to see at which stage the pizza sauce and cheese are added: Pizza Roses Step by Step.
After shaping the roses, if you are using the Pizza dough, allow them to rest for about half an hour or until the roses double in size before brushing them with an egg yolk beaten with 1 tbsp milk. You can sprinkle sesame seeds if you like. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 C for about 20 minutes or until done. If using the Rose Rolls dough recipe, there will be no need to allow them to rest a second time, simply shape, brush with egg and bake!
