Let’s face it:
I’ve been stuck thinking about munchies ever since I published my 52 Favorite Vegan Munchy Recipes last week.

Is that a bad thing? Hell no!
Munchies are always in fashion, especially with the weather getting nicer by the day. 😎

While caught in the endless loop of craving vegan comfort food, I discovered this recipe from King Arthur Flour!

Could it be? The answer to my dreams?

There could only be one way to tell; Veganize the hell out of it and see how they turn out!

Holy hell, guys. I’m sure you can guess how it went (considering I’m here talking about it today!).
This has to be my favorite recipe I’ve made to date!

These vegan pizza rolls are:

  • delectable
  • easy to make
  • overflowing with flavor
  • the perfect amount of crispy/chewy goodness that you would expect from a flawlessly golden dough

Vegan Pizza Rolls for Any Occasion!

Like I said before, these vegan pizza rolls were made to be shared!
(Although, I definitely ate them all the first day 😭)

Being one-handed means these babes travel well, are easy to eat, and don’t require any plates or utensils!

Even better, these vegan pizza rolls are easily refrigerated or frozen for maximum longevity.. You could make a huge batch now to last through the entire season’s pool parties! Talk about being prepared!

Customizability is Key!

Now, my favorite pizza is definitely pepperoni (vegan, of course!).  What if you like pineapple on your pizza!?

Fortunately, you can top these vegan pizza rolls with whatever you want (even if pineapple pizza is a crime against humanity..), the choice is yours!

Ingredients

    For the Dough
  • 1 1/4 cups lukewarm soymilk
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast (1 standard packet)
  • 3 1/2 cups bread flour (regular will work, but it won't rise as well)
  • 3 tablespoons oil (I used grapeseed, any mild-flavor oil will work)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • For Topping
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • Daiya mozzarella cheese (I used slightly less than a whole bag)
  • Chopped vegan "pepperoni"
  • 10 basil leaves, rolled up and roughly chopped

Instructions

  1. Warm the cold soymilk in the microwave for 45 seconds (or you can use the stove!). Too hot and it will kill the yeast, so just slightly warmer than room-temperature is perfect!
  2. Mix the soymilk and the yeast in a small bowl and let sit for 5 minutes until nice and bubbly
  3. In a stand mixer, add the bread flour, oil, salt, and yeast mixture. Using the dough hook attachment, mix on medium speed until the dough starts to form
  4. If it's slightly too dry and not pulling together after a couple of minutes, add a splash of water. On the other hand, if the dough is extremely sticky simply add a dash of flour
  5. Allow the mixer to knock the dough around a bit to reduce the amount of hand-kneading you'll have to do, around 4-5 minutes on medium speed
  6. Once you have a rough dough formed, transfer it to a lightly floured surface
  7. Knead by hand until you have a beautiful, smooth ball of dough
  8. Transfer to a greased bowl and let rise for 1 1/2 hours (until doubled in size)
  9. Remove from bowl and transfer back to the floured surface
  10. Gently pat the dough down and start forming it into a 12x18 square
  11. Once the dough is shaped, add the sauce
  12. Cheese
  13. Pepperoni and Basil
  14. Start from the top and start tightly rolling the tube-of-pizza down towards you
  15. Grab some floss, thread, or a sharp knife and start sectioning off 1-2 inch rounds. For floss and thread (the easiest option!), loop underneath the log, cross opposite sides on top and pull until it's cut guillotine style
  16. Transfer the cut rounds to a parchment-lined baking tray
  17. Allow the rounds to sit for another hour or so, until they're nice and fluffy
  18. After the 45 minute mark of rising, go ahead and preheat the oven to 350ÂșF
  19. Bake for 25 minutes until slightly golden
  20. Let cool for a couple of minutes and enjoy!
