Separate the dough in half and color one part red and one part green.
Put one of the freshly made dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll 11 x 9 inches and 1/4 inch thick.
Repeat with the other color dough.
Put the rolled dough including the parchment paper, on a cookie sheet and refrigerate for 10 minutes or longer.
Take the top layer off both dough’s and lightly wet the tops. Sandwich the two colors together, using a paring knife trim the edges to make straight edges.
Remove the top layer of paper and start rolling up and use the bottom layer of paper to pull it tight. If the dough tears you can just pinch it together.
