Homemade Soy-Free Pizza Rolls

Hello! Welcome to Beyond Soy!

When it comes to pizza, Ashley and I have been on a pizza roll kick lately. Because of the challenges with finding soy-free bread products (and how frequently frozen pizza contains soy) we make them at home, including the dough, using the recipe below.

One of the things we love about this recipe is how fast it is! We usually prep some pizza dough ahead of time and freeze it, and then we’ll throw the dough in the refrigerator in the morning so it is soft by the time we are ready for dinner. Making these pizza rolls is as simple as rolling out the dough and then rolling it up!

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 cup warm water (105 - 115 F)
  • 1 package yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
  • 3.5 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (plus a bit more, if necessary)
  • 1/2 lb mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Pepperoni
  • Parchment paper
  • 1 cup pasta sauce

What To Do:
The Dough

  1. Add the yeast to the water and let sit for 5-10 minutes
  2. In a bowl, mix the flour and salt together
  3. Add the yeast and water to the flour mixture
  4. Add olive oil
  5. Knead the dough for ~10 minutes (don’t worry, you can’t over knead it!)
  6. Coat a separate bowl with olive oil
  7. Place the kneaded dough in the bowl, cover and set in a warm place to rise for 1 hour (we put it on the stove and turn the over on to 200 F)
  8. Split dough in half (at this point, you can wrap the dough in cling wrap and freeze, if desired)

The Pizza Rolls

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 F (if you have one, make sure your baking stone is in the oven before preheating)
  2. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface
  3. Brush a small amount of olive oil onto the dough
  4. Cut dough into strips approximately 2 inches wide and 6 inches long
  5. Place shredded cheese and pepperoni onto the strips
  6. Roll up the strips, stretching and pinching the ends to contain the cheese
  7. Put parchment paper on the baking stone (careful--it will be very hot!) or line a baking sheet with parchment paper (to avoid burned cheese)
  8. Place the pizza rolls 1 inch apart on the stone or baking sheet
  9. Bake for 10-15 minutes until lightly brown on the outside
  10. Serve while hot with pasta sauce for dipping
