  1. Kaiser roll

    The Kaiser roll, also called a Vienna roll or a hard roll, is a kind of bread roll, invented in Vienna, and thought to have been named to honor Emperor Franz Joseph. It is a typically crusty round roll made from wheat flour, barm, malt, water and salt, with the top side usually divided in a rotationally symmetric pattern of five segments, separated by curved superficial cuts radiating from the centre outwards or folded in a series of overlapping lobes. Kaiser rolls are often produced by machine, as well as by hand. Kaiser rolls are traditionally found in Austria, but have also become popular in other countries, such as the United States, Poland, Canada, Slovenia, Croatia, Italy, and Germany. Italian bakers, during the Austrian domination in Lombardy, produced a hollow version known as michetta or rosetta.
