Oil-Free Pizza Dough or dough of choice

Oil-Free Pizza Sauce or pizza sauce of choice

Other Pizza Pinwheel Ingredients

  • 2 clove of garlic minced
  • 1 small yellow or white onion diced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms sliced thin
  • ½ cup diced sun-dried tomatoes not in oil
  • 6 ounce fresh basil or 1 cup
  • Vegan Parmesan optional
  • Vegan cheese for pizza optional


Mushrooms. Onions and Garlic

  • In a skillet, saute garlic and onions until translucent.
  • Add sliced mushrooms and cook until mushrooms are browned.
  • Use a small amount of vegetable broth or water if the mushrooms begin to stick.
  • Saute until any liquid dissipates; remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • In the meantime, roll out the dough.
  • If using frozen dough, place it in the refrigerator overnight to thaw.
  • To quickly thaw the dough, leave it out on the counter for about an hour until thawed.
  • Lay a piece of parchment paper the size of a large baking sheet pan on a flat surface.
  • Roll the dough on the parchment paper. You may need a small amount of flour for the rolling pin or if you experience any sticking.
  • Roll out the dough thin, less than ⅛ inch evenly across.
  • Although the dough does not need to be perfectly rectangular, make it equal on both ends and sides, even if misshaped.
  • Spoon the pizza sauce evenly over the dough base, making sure a thin layer covers the entire area.
  • Then, spread the mushroom, garlic, onions mixture (now cool) evenly across the sauce layer.
  • Next, add sun-dried tomatoes, again sprinkling evenly across the surface.
  • Add whole basil leaves over the surface and sprinkle generously with vegan parmesan cheese.
  • Now, tightly roll the dough evenly toward you, keeping the ingredients inside the dough.
  • Using the parchment paper underneath, roll the cylinder, covering the dough.
  • Fold at both ends to avoid any moisture getting into the tube.
  • Place the wrapped pizza pinwheel dough in the refrigerator until it is firm again.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Unroll the dough's cylinder, use a sharp knife, and cut the now firm dough into one-inch slices.
  • With the same parchment paper, line a baking sheet, and place each pizza pinwheel piece an inch apart.
  • Bake for 35 minutes
  • Serve with extra pizza sauce or vegan ranch for dipping.
