These are our incredibly delicious cheeseburger dough balls! They’re fun, bite sized balls made with pizza dough and stuffed with a slice of veggie sausage, dairy free cheese and caramelised onion. The dough balls are sprinkled with sesame seeds to mimic classic mini cheese burgers. So good. So naughty. You will love this!

This is one of our dishes that takes a little bit longer, but it’s definitely worth the wait! We used dairy free cheese and vegan sausages that we got from our local supermarket. These mini burgers are perfect for sharing at a party or for a summer barbeque.

These are a favourite in the #TEAMBOSH studio. The pizza dough is the perfectly soft blanket for the cheeseburger filling. Wow your meat eater friends with these seriously tasty treats, they’ll never know they’re vegan.

We hope you love this recipe! It’s..

  1. 1.

    To make the dough:

    Add the flour and salt to a large bowl and mix well.

    Mix the yeast, sugar, olive oil with the luke warm water and leave for a minute or so.

    Create a hole in the middle of the flour and gradually add the liquid until you have a dough. Tip the dough onto a floured chopping board. Knead for a few minutes until the dough is springy.

    Transfer back to the bowl and cover with a damp cloth for about an hour. The dough should have doubled in size.

    Transfer back onto the floured chopping board and knead again to knock back.

    Divide the dough in half then half again until you get 18 small pieces of dough.

  2. 2.

    To make the onions:

    Add the olive oil and red onion to a small pan cook on a low heat for 20 minutes until soft and caramelised.

  3. 3.

    To make the burgers:

    Microwave the veggie sausages for 2 minutes and allow to cool. Add them to a large bowl with the garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mash together to form a mixture.

    Take small amounts of the mixture and use your hands to form into mini patties.

    Add all the burgers to a large pan with the oil. Fry on a medium heat for 2 minutes on each side. Set aside.

  4. 4.

    To make the cheese burger dough balls:

    Form the dough into a small circle. Firstly add a small piece of cheese, then a little fried onion, then the mini burger and another slice of cheese.

    Fold in the corners of the dough and squeeze together to seal.

    Transfer to a baking tray with a little olive oil in the bottom.

    Continue the process until all 18 are formed and in the baking tray and are nestled close to each other.

    Brush a little melted vegan butter over the top then sprinkle with sesame seeds.

    Bake on Gas mark 4/ 350 F/177 C for 25 minutes until cooked and golden on top.

    Allow to cool a little then dip into ketchup.
