Recipe: Spicy Cheesy Rolls

The recipe so nice I made it two weeks in a row. This is a really super simple tear and share style bread which is basically savory cinnamon rolls. If you weren’t in the mood to make your own roll dough you could probably substitute ready made pizza dough as well. The original recipe called for a spicy masala paste but all I had on hand was harissa, I imagine any fairly dry sauce or paste like pesto would do but even a savory jam would probably be nice.

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time2 hrsCook Time25 minsTotal Time2 hrs 25 mins

Ingredients
 200 g flour
 10 g sugar
 1 tsp salt
 4 g yeast
 15 g olive oil
 120 ml water
 70 g gouda
 100 g mozzarella
 2 tbsp harissa

Directions
1

Make the dough: In a large bowl or stand mixer stir together the flour, sugar, salt, dried yeast, olive oil, and warm water until a dough begins to form. Turn the dough out on a floured surface and kneed for 5-8 minutes until the dough becomes smooth (you may need to add flour or water depending on consistency).

2

Let the dough rest for at least an hour, or until doubled in size, in an oiled bowl.

3

Roll out of the dough into a large rectangle and coat with the harissa (or other spiced paste) and grated / cubed cheese leaving about 1/2" of space at the edges.

4

Roll the dough up from the long side and section into about 1" cuts as if you were making cinnamon rolls.

5

Place the rolls in a prepared pan (I used a 9x9" glass baking dish that I lightly buttered) and allow to rise again for an hour, turning the oven on to preheat at 200°C halfway through.

6

Bake rolls for about 30-35 minutes or until the tops have browned and the cheese oozes out.
