Bakery product — or part, so it’s said (4)


I believe the answer is:


Here is my best explanation:

'bakery product' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'part so it's said' is the subsidiary indication.

'part' becomes 'role' ('role' can be a synonym of 'part').

'so it's said' indicates a 'sounds like' (homophone) clue.

'role' sounds like 'roll'.

'or' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for roll that I've seen before include "Barm cake", "wind", "Flatten; register", "Eg, bap", "Bap", "bun", "Register - for continental breakfast?", "Bakery product", "Pass" and "Bun".)
