Pizza Rolls (easy to make vegan)

This summer while visiting my cousin in PEI, she made these amazing pizza rolls for dinner one night. I thought it wouldn’t be that hard to make it vegan and recently gave it a try.  After my cousin sent me the link, I found it on Pinterest so I wouldn’t lose it. Here you go! From the blog “The Girl That Ate Everything” and Let’s Dish Blog.

Pizza Rolls (made vegan – see the above blog links to original recipes)

Sorry, I’m not a professional photographer but I assume you get the idea :)

Dough:

3 1/2 cups flour (I used 2 cups whole wheat and 1.5 cups of normal flour)

1 cup luke warm water

1 tablespoon of yeast

1 tablespoon of sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup olive oil

1 egg (or Egg Replacer:  1 egg with 1 tsp egg replacer and 2 tbsp water….I use Kingsmill brand)

Directions:

  1. Combine water, yeast and sugar in a bowl; set aside for about 10 minutes.
  2. Mix egg and oil and add to yeast mixture. Add salt and stir.
  3. Gradually blend in flour until a soft dough forms.
  4. Oil dough and place in large bowl. Let rise for one hour.
  5. Additions: chili pepper flakes and garlic powder in dough makes for a tasty base (thanks to my cousin this is what I’ll be doing from now on).

For pizza:

  1. Divide dough in half and roll out to desired thickness (rectangle).
  2. Spread on base one of the following: pizza sauce, pesto sauce, or a spicy olive oil – or your own base sauce.
  3. Add spices of your choice (garlic salt, basil, oregano, rosemary)
  4. Put on your veggies, meat or meat alternative.
  5. Layer your cheese or vegan substitute cheese.
  6. Add any other ingredients you enjoy on your pizza’s.

Roll each half rectangle to form a log and then cut into 1 inch  pieces, place on greased baking sheet. (Little tip from “The Girl Who Ate Everything” – rectangles should be as big as a piece of paper).

Bake @ 425 degrees for 10 – 15 minutes or until lightly brown.

Makes roughly 12 pizza rolls per 1/2 section of dough. You can use it all or freeze the dough for next time.

Let cool, serve and enjoy!

You can also make it into a calzone – see Let’s Dish on how to.
