This mastermind of a recipe comes from the super genius Shutterbean!
Its a super fun take on pizza and was absolutely delicious.
I also have this thing with daiya cheese. I dont really like it on pizza, but when its IN something, it gets kinda creamy and delicious; and since you bake the cheese IN the dough, I’m all for it!
I added some spinach, olives and tofurkey sausage to mine. I will definitely be adding these to the mix! Loved them!
- 1 lb. pizza dough (this is my go-to pizza dough!)
- pizza sauce
- basil leaves, finely chopped, plus more for serving
Preheat oven to 450F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and grease the baking sheet with olive oil.
On a floured surface, roll out pizza dough into a rectangular shape, roughly 9 x 16 inches and position so the short sides are parallel to you. Spread the sauce evenly on the rolled out dough, leaving about a 1″ border around the dough. Place about 1 cup shredded cheese, followed by your veggies and some of the basil.
Using your hands, lift up the bottom edge of the dough and roll it forward into a tight cylinder. Place dough cylinder, seam side down, on a cutting board and, using a thin, sharp knife, cut cylinder crosswise into 8 equal-size slices. Nestle the slices, cut sides up on a parchment lined baking sheet. Brush 1 tablespoon olive oil onto the edges of the dough and bake until golden brown about 15-20 minutes. In the last two minutes of baking, pull rolls out of the oven and top with more cheese if youd like. Place rolls back into oven and bake until cheese melts. Remove rolls from the oven, let rest for 5 minutes and sprinkle with chopped basil for serving.
