♫ Listening to: Chain My Name by Poliça

Pizza Dough Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons yeast
  • 2 cups warm water (I use around 110 degree water)
  • 2 teaspoons raw sugar
  • 5 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2-4 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • extra flour for dusting rolling surface

Pizza Dough Directions:

Mix the yeast, water, and sugar in large bowl. Add 3 cups of the flour. Mix well to blend. (I use my kitchenaid for this because kneading dough is my nemesis.)

Add the oil, salt, garlic, nutritional yeast, and remaining flour and stir well.

Place the dough to a flour covered board. Dust your hands with flour. Knead for 5 minutes, adding flour if it gets too sticky. (Or, do this with your kitchenaid.)

Roll dough into a ball and place into a lightly oiled bowl. Cover bowl with towel and set in a warm place for 45 minutes to rise.


Pizza Pinwheels Ingredients:

  • olive oil
  • pizza sauce (I usually mix one 15 oz can of organic tomato sauce with one 6 oz can of organic tomato paste, and then I add basil, oregano, and garlic)
  • 1 package grated nondairy cheese (I use follow your heart mozzarella)
  • Any other pizza ingredients you like, cut into very small pieces

Pizza Pinwheels Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350°.

Line 2 cookies sheets with parchment paper or sprinkle cornmeal onto a baking stone.

Divide the dough into 2 equal sized pieces.

Roll out one section of dough into a rectangle, flouring your surface and your rolling pin before starting. I use this rolling mat, and it has made my pizza life and cleanup SO MUCH easier!

Brush the surface with olive oil.

Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce on your dough.

Add the toppings one-by-one, but don’t overload it, and make sure you chop your toppings into small pieces.

Making Pizza Pinwheels

Roll slowly and gently, starting with the long end and working your way from one end to the other and back again.

Rolling the Vegan Pizza Roll

Chill the roll for 20 minutes while you make the second one.

Repeat the above instructions for the second roll, and when you place it in the fridge to chill, remove roll #1.

Place the first roll onto a cutting board and cut into one-inch slices.

Place the pinwheels onto a baking sheet, leaving space in between each one for room to grow.

Repeat with roll #2.

Sprinkle the tops with seasonings (optional).

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until they start to brown.

Serve with the remaining pizza sauce to dip into.
