How to make vegan pull-apart pizza bread
Danielle Brown of @healthygirlkitchen recently shared her recipe for vegan pull-apart pizza bread that tastes just as delicious – and arguably better than – a regular “za” slice. To make it, Brown preheat the oven to 425 ° F and divide the fresh wholemeal pizza dough into 13 equal pieces. Then, he takes each individual portion, fills it with a vegan mozzarella cube and wraps it in a bun. In a greased baking tray, Brown places them a few millimeters apart to give them room to grow as they are baked in the oven.
For even more melting, cheese-pulling ability, Brown wedges extra mozzarella cubes into the open gaps between the buns. And to create an even tastier crust, pour a little olive oil mixed with Italian spices on top and cook until golden brown for about 20-25 minutes. Once cool enough to catch, Brown garnish the toast with freshly chopped basil and serve with a hot pizza sauce for a dip.
Some basic conclusions to achieve this recipe with the first try
When cooking this recipe at home, let your pizza dough come to room temperature and rise before baking for at least one to three hours. Using cold dough in the fridge will result in harder, less fluffy buns that will be harder to shape. However, if you can not devote much time to achieving the perfect climb, you can easily turn your Instant Pot into a sealing box to get the job done faster. Using the yogurt setting, add a tablespoon of oil to the bottom of the pot, then place the dough in the center and heat at 95 ° F for about 45 minutes. This easy step will help speed up the time it takes for the dough to rise for fluffier and even tastier pizza rolls. (Find more detailed instructions on how to use Instant Pot for baking bread here.)
I love it so much; See how to turn it into a dessert
One of the great things about using pizza dough is that it is incredibly flexible and easily accessible. If you feel sweeter in this savory dish, you can turn it into an extremely quick and easy bread inspired by cinnamon roll. Meanwhile, the pizza dough withers, preheat the oven to 375 ° F and mix 1/2 cup granulated sugar with a tablespoon of grated cinnamon and set aside. Then melt 1/2 cup unsalted butter (or vegan butter, if you prefer) and cover equal portions (about 1 1/2 inch) of dough balls in the liquid.
Then dip the pizza dough buns in the cinnamon-sugar mixture and shake off the excess. Arrange them in a pan with oil paste, leaving a few millimeters in between and bake for about 20-30 minutes. For extra sweetness, make a simple icing sugar to pour on top by mixing a cup of icing sugar, a tablespoon of milk or alt-milk and a teaspoon of vanilla extract and beat with a fork until smooth.
