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
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)
- Combine water, yeast and sugar in a bowl; set aside for about 10 minutes.
- Mix egg and oil and add to yeast mixture. Add salt and stir.
- Gradually blend in flour until a soft dough forms.
- Oil dough and place in large bowl. Let rise for one hour.
- 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).
- Divide dough in half and roll out to desired thickness (rectangle).
- Spread on base one of the following: pizza sauce, pesto sauce, or a spicy olive oil – or your own base sauce.
- Add spices of your choice (garlic salt, basil, oregano, rosemary)
- Put on your veggies, meat or meat alternative.
- Layer your cheese or vegan substitute cheese.
- 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!
