Vegan Spelt Pizza Rolls

I’ve officially been on a cinnamon roll kick for a while now. Recently I’ve shared recipes for strawberry and carrot cake rolls and today I’m super excited to share a savory variation.

I wasn’t totally sure if this recipe for Vegan Spelt Pizza Rolls would work out…but I’m very happy to say that it more than exceeded my expectations!

I kept the fillings simple and just used onion, garlic, mushrooms and spinach but you could easily go crazy and add all sorts of veggies and/or faux meat. For the pizza sauce I used Eden Foods and went with Daiya Pepperjack for the cheese.

One thing to note- we ended up adding extra sauce on top when we ate the rolls and you may want to plan for that ingredient-wise.

Working on this recipe hasn’t done much to end my roll kick…now I’m dreaming up tons of other savory roll recipes so stay tuned!



Vegan Spelt Pizza Rolls
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: entree
Cuisine: vegan
Serves: 6
  • 1 tsp dry active yeast
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1.5 cups spelt flour
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • dash of salt
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • ⅔ cup pizza sauce
  • ½ cup vegan cheese+ extra for sprinkling
  1. Pour water into a small bowl and add yeast and maple syrup. Let sit for 10 minutes, until bubbles form.
  2. Stir in flour, 1 tbs olive oil and salt. Knead for 2 minutes. Dough should feel slightly sticky, add more water if needed. Place in bowl and cover with towel. Let rise for 45 minutes.
  3. While dough rises, heat 1 tbs olive oil in a pan at medium-high. Add mushrooms, onion and garlic and sauté for 5 minutes. Add spinach, sauté until wilted and set aside.
  4. Sprinkle a clean surface with extra flour. After dough rises for 45 minutes, punch it down and use a rolling pin to roll it out to rectangle ¼" - ½" thick.
  5. Spread sauce over dough, then layer onion/mushroom mixture and cheese. Start on one end, gently rolling dough into log. Spread a little olive oil over a knife and slice the roll into 1"-2" pieces. Place the pieces on a greased baking dish (I used 8" round). Place dish in a warm spot and let rise for 1 hour.
  6. Bake rolls at 375° for 20 minutes. Sprinkle extra cheese on top and bake for 5 more minutes. Serve warm.

  1. Hi :) these look wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing! I can’t wait to see what you come up with next:)

  2. It sounds delicious. Is there any other way to make the dough to remove a step and / or make it less time consuming?

    • Thanks, I think it’s super delicious! As of now, this is the most simplified version I’ve tried. If you’re looking to shave off a little time perhaps you could try pre-made pizza crust? :)

    • Hmm, I haven’t tried it but perhaps you can try to omit the oil from the dough and add a little extra water? I’m not sure if the consistency would be great though! I wish I had a better suggestion but I haven’t tried it oil free!
