Chocolate in a rose

What do you do when there is some leftover pizza dough.... We usually end up making some soup-breadsticks or thin crisps or small buns. Once we tried this beautiful roses. Saw this pin on pinterest about various ways to fancy the regular dough to make it look more interesting. There were so many options to look for but only a few stayed in my mind. This is one among them

When we had very little dough left, we just split it into four and made a very small treat for all of us.... just one small bite-size for each of us. Instead of folding it with extra dough in the middle we decided to use some chocolate and cherries that we had in hand. It turned out to be a fun snack for the kids. They loved the way it looked and tasted too

I have used little of pizza dough made using 50% whole wheat flour and 50% all-purpose flour. You can use the same ratio or 100% whole wheat flour or 100% all-purpose flour. The dough will have a little bit of salt but that contrasts really well with the chocolate inside. We loved it that way 

Serves... makes 6 pieces 
Serve option... Warm

This is what u'll need...

Pizza dough - using 1 cup of all-purpose/whole-wheat flour
Chocolate pieces/Cherries - 6
Milk - 1 tbspn

Here is the stir....
  • Make pizza dough using just 1 cup of flour. For step by step instructions to make pizza dough click on the recipe here -> How to make pizza dough. Divide the dough into 6 small pieces
  • Pick one dough piece and roll it out on a dusted work surface into a thick chapathi
  • Use a pizza-cutter or knife and make 4 cuts  in the rolled out dough so that the center stays untouched
  • Place a cherry or chocolate piece in the middle
  • Fold one cut side and place it against the chocolate. See picture for reference
  • Repeat the same with the opposite cut side
  • Repeat with remaining sides and finally it will look like flower bud. If the cuts dont stay together then just use a drop of water to stick them
  • Place this on a baking tray. Repeat the same with remaining dough pieces
  • Brush the roses gently with some milk
  • Bake this in a 180 degrees preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until the top are golden. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes
  • Serve with love and enjoy

                                        • You can use anything of your favourites for the center. We loved using chocolate especially in the ones where the chocolate oozed out a little
                                        • Brushing with milk is optional but it gives a shiny glaze in the end
