The only negative thing about it is the time because it needs to rest for a couple of hours...but preparing it is actually much faster so you can just make it and do something else while you let it rest! :)
The dough is very similar to a bread dough so you probably can imagine already how good it is, and the smell during the baking is amazing!
The classic filling is ham and cheese but you can adjust it to your own taste and try endless combinations.
Everybody will love it!
And let's not forget about its look...a bouquet of roses will impress your guests!
Step 1: Ingredients
- 400gr (3.2 cups) all-purpose flour
- 140ml (a little over 1/2 cup) milk
- 12gr (0.42 oz) yeast
- 1 tsp sugar
- 50ml (3.38 tbsp) olive oil
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp salt
- cheese (any kind you like)
Step 2: The yeast first
This is because (in case you don't know already) the yeast is alive and needs to "eat" something sweet like sugar or honey to be able to grow. If you put the yeast in contact with salt it will most probably die and the rising of your dough won't happen.
For this reason, let's start dipping the yeast in the milk with a tsp of sugar.
Use your hands to make sure that the yeast completely melts in the milk.
Now put your flour in a bowl and add the milk/yeast mixture that you've prepared and mix everything a little.
I used a mixer but you can use your hands for the whole recipe if you don't have one.
