Fall is here and we’re deep into school lunch season! I’m doing my best not to fall into a lunch box rut. My weekly meal plan includes a lunch box menu that’s as fun for the kids to eat as it is for me to make (not to mention healthy and delicious!).
These pizza roll-ups have quickly become a favorite on the menu. I made them on a whim and now my kids are asking for them every week!
With just 4 ingredients, these are simple enough to prep while making dinner the night before, or make a big batch on the weekend and reheat (pack in thermoses) the morning you are packing. I used olives (a favorite in our house) and Michelle has used Lightlife’s vegan pepperoni but have fun with the toppings and add whatever you or your kids like! Be sure to serve with more marinara or pizza sauce on the side for delicious dipping.Print
These delicious vegan pizza rolls will be a big hit with kiddos everywhere! A great meal idea for the entire family, feel free to add additional pizza roll fillings of your choice!

Where Can I Find the Ingredients?
You can find pre-made vegan pizza dough in the refrigerated section of many grocery stores (such as Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods) or you can make your own. The pictured pizza rolls were made using the Trader Joe’s Garlic & Herb pizza dough, Trader Joe’s pizza sauce (found in a tub in the refrigerated section), Miyoko’s vegan mozzarella cheese, and Yves vegan pepperoni slices (sliced into small pieces). If you want to add an extra handmade touch to these pizza roll-ups, consider making your own vegan pepperoni to throw in!
