How To Make Pizza Roses
A fun way to change up your pizza night is to make a cheese stuffed pizza cone. The pizza cone is like an ice cream cone except it is made with dough and filled with your favorite toppings.
The process is a little more complicated than making a regular pizza, but the results are worth it. The Pizzacraft® Pizza Cone Set makes things easy by giving you a template to cut out your cones and holders to cook the cones upright in the oven. We used our set to make a Pinterest favorite, Pizza Roses, except ours or stuffed with cheese and pepperoni!
Start With a Pizza Cone
Pre-heat oven or grill to 400° F.Roll your pizza dough out to 1/16″ thickness and use the cutter to cut out two pizza cone shapes.
Dab edges of the dough with water and fold over to seal. Use the Pizza Cone Set dough crimper to ensure the seam is closed.
Lightly flour the silicone cone mold and slide dough onto the mold. Par-bake this cone upright for 6-8 minutes, or until it begins to lightly brown.Remove cone from oven or grill, let it rest for a few minutes then remove crust from the cone mold.
Place par-baked crust into the pizza cone stand and fill with your favorite ingredients.Return stand and crust to the oven or grill and bake until golden and bubbly.Let cool before eating… if you can wait that long!
If you want to take things a little further you can add an extra step and make your Pizza Cones pop with Pizza Roses for the top!
To Make The Pizza Rose Top:
Cut a strip of dough that is about 8” long and 1.5” wide.Very lightly spread sauce over the dough.Layer pepperonis longwise across the dough, leaving a little bit of dough open at the end.Add cheese on the Botton portions of the pepperonis and then roll them longwise into a rose shape.Par-bake this rose upright in a muffin pan until it holds its shape. You can use tin foil to keep it in place while baking if your muffin tin is too big.Once both your cones and roses are par-baked, simply slide the rose into the top of your pre-stuffed cone and finish cooking!The result will be a cone overflowing with rose pedal top, which looks just as good as it tastes.
