  3. Spread the barbecue sauce. Top with shredded chicken, Italian chicken, cheese mixture.
  4. Rolling the crust, pinching the seams lightly to seal. Spread cooking spray on a baking sheet with the seams facing down.

  6. Garnish with chopped parsley.
  7. Use a spatula to lift off the rolls. Serve immediately.
