Dry Ingredients

Wet Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients. 
  • In a smaller bowl, whisk all the wet ingredients together until well combined.
  • Pour the wet into the dry ingredients and mix with a large spoon until it comes together. It will be like a dough that is pretty rough at this point.
  • Turn the dough onto a work surface and knead until smooth. Break into 3 sections and shape each section into logs about 2 inches in diameter. 
  • Wrap tightly in aluminum foil, twisting the ends to secure.
  • Bake for 60 minutes, placing the foil-wrapped logs directly on the oven racks. 
  • Remove from oven, unwrap and let cool for 5-10 minutes. Slice the pepperoni very thin, or thicker if desired. Store extra pepperoni in an air tight container or plastic wrap. 


  1. Use homemade vegan pepperoni on pizza, in calzones, sandwiches or make your kids homemade lunchables with crackers and vegan cheese squares!
  2. If you shape the log very large, you will need to cook it for closer to 90 minutes. I like to make a few small logs to make smaller pepperoni rounds.
