In the bowl of your stand mixer (fitted with a dough hook) or a large bowl, add the pineapple juice and sugar, mix until the sugar has dissolved then add in the instant yeast, vegetable oil, and salt and mix again.
Add in 1 cup of bread flour + 2 cups of all-purpose flour. Mix until just combined. Add in 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour and mix until just combined, then add in the remaining 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour and mix until fully combined. The dough should pull away from the sides of the bowl. Beat the dough for about 2 more minutes. By hand, it can take anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes (make sure to flour your surface if kneading by hand)!
Lightly grease a large bowl with vegetable oil and place the dough in the bowl turning it to coat all sides in the oil. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until double in size (about 1-2 hours).
Lightly grease a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with butter. Divide the dough into 15 equal parts, I recommend using a scale for this step if you want your sweet rolls to be picture perfect. Roll each piece of dough into a ball and then shape by tucking under to create a perfectly smooth top. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until puffy (30 minutes to an hour, I usually do 40 minutes). Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400F.
Brush the rolls with milk and bake for 20-21 minutes or until golden brown on top. A toothpick inserted in the center of a sweet roll should come out clean. Remove from the oven and immediately brush with melted butter (optional but recommended). Serve!
