For the Dough

For the Filling


  • In a large bowl for a stand mixer, combine flour, sugar, yeast, and salt. 
  • Turn stand mixer onto low and add in the water, oil, and vegan butter.
  • Once ball is formed, grease the same bowl mixed in and place the dough ball back into the bowl. 
  • Cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let sit for 60-90 minutes in a warm, draft free place until doubled.
  • Once dough has doubled in size, pull out the dough and lay it out on a lightly floured surface.  
  • Using a rolling pin, roll dough into an approximately 17×25″ rectangle that is 1/4″ thick.  
  • In a bowl, combine the vegan butter, garlic, and Italian dressing
  • Gently spread the softened butter mixture across the dough.
  • Sprinkle the vegan parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese shreds evenly across the top.
  • Carefully roll the dough into a log from the longest side up. One completely rolled, place seam side down. Cut into 12 even sized pieces.
  • Place into a greased 9x13 baking dish and cover to rise for 45-60 minutes.
  • Preheat to 350 degrees F.
  • Once heated, place dish inside and bake in oven for 30-35 minutes. During the last 5 minutes turn the heat up to 450 for a crispier top (pay attention carefully so not to burn)
  • Serve immediately.
    Store leftovers in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 3-5 days. Reheat by microwaving 30 seconds at a time.
