This pizza roses recipe combines my two of my favorite guilty pleasures–pizza and The Bachelor.  Side note: who’s watching this season of The Bachelor? It took me a couple of weeks, but I’ve officially decided Nick is a jerk man-boy who really doesn’t want to get married. Please go to therapy, Nick.

Anyway, back to the pizza roses. These are DELICIOUS and actually pretty easy to make. There was a little panic mid-making; I wasn’t sure they were going to turn out, but they did! Don’t worry if they aren’t looking perfect when you’re rolling them, once you bake them, they’ll turn out just fine. This recipe is not about perfection!

Now, onto the recipe.

Ingredients:

Pizza dough

Pepperoni (all cut in half)

Pizza sauce

Shredded Mozzarella

Directions:

1. Cut your pizza dough into strips that are about 8 inches long and 1.5 inches wide. Pizza Rose Recipe: pizza roses, pizza rose recipe, pizza rose, pizza recipes, fun recipes

3. Place the pepperoni, slightly overlapping each other, across the length of the strips. Make sure they only cover the top half of the strip, as you’ll be folding the dough over the pepperoni.

And of course, these are also perfect for Valentine’s day. Pizza somehow seems to be a staple on my Valentine’s Days. Like A LOT of pizza. And wine. And cheesy romance movies.

And, if you really want to have fun with it, maybe stick some wooden skewers in them and deliver them to your lady or man as a bouquet. Flowers that are cheesy, carby and have pepperoni?? Now THAT’s a great Valentine’s Day present.
