Vegan soft pizza pretzels recipe


These pizza pretzels are soft, chewy, gooey and taste just like a mozzarella pizza, but even better.
I had the idea to combine a pizza with a pretzel when I saw the new Violife mozzarella cheese and it worked out extremely well!

I am over the moon Violife have brought out a new range of vegan cheeses, which taste delicious by the way!
I am featuring the new mozzarella flavoured grated cheese in this recipe. Mozzarella pizza is my favourite and is super quick & easy to make!
This is the first vegan cheese I have come across which actually melts, yay!
It's made with coconut oil, hence why the cheese melts perfectly! 
It is 100% vegan and free from dairy, lactose, gluten, nuts and preservatives.

The new range also includes cream cheeses, block cheese, slices, herb cheese etc.
There are so many options, so check out the range here.
Preparation- 2 hours
Baking time- 8 minutes
Makes- 8 large pretzels
Level- medium

Ingredients for the pretzels
-2 & 1/2 teaspoons of dry yeast powder
-150ml of almond milk (I use unsweetened)
-1 teaspoon of golden caster sugar
-150ml of warm water
-400g of plain flour 
-1 teaspoon of onion granules
-1 teaspoon of oregano
-1/4 teaspoon of salt

Ingredients for the pretzel wash
-400ml of boiling water
-1/4 teaspoon of salt
-3 & 1/2 teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda


-Dairy-free cheese (I use Violife grated mozzarella)
-Tomato sauce
-Basil leaves
-Black pepper
-Onion granules

To make the pretzels
Step 1- Place the yeast, almond milk, sugar and warm water into a bowl and set aside for 20 minutes for the yeast to activate.

Step 2- Add the flour, onion granules, oregano and salt into the yeast mixture and knead.
I used my Kitchenaid with the dough hook attachment, on a low/medium speed until a dough forms. You can always knead by hand.

Step 3- Place the dough ball into a greased bowl, cover with a tea towel and set in a warm place and allow to rise.
This will take around 2 hours. The dough should double in size.

Step 4- Once the dough has doubled, divide it into 8 equal pieces.
Step 5- Form into pretzels.
I used this very helpful video (skip to 2:50) to help create the perfect pretzel shape.

To make the pretzel wash
Step 1- Pre-heat your oven to 230 degrees c and line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper.

Step 2- Place the boiling water, salt and bicarbonate of soda into a saucepan or bowl.
Step 3- Dunk each pretzel in to the wash and place onto the lined trays.
Repeat for all of the pretzels.

Step 4- Brush the tomato sauce over the pretzels, add on the dairy-free cheese, and toppings then place them into the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes.
They will turn a golden brown colour & the cheese will be melted.
Step 5- Carefully remove them from the oven allow to cool on a cooling rack for 5 minutes before serving.

Best enjoyed within a few days of making. Store in a sealed container.
