|Since it is Friday and we have a busy weekend ahead of us, I decided to start this morning off with a bang! I threw these little babies together in about 5 minutes! We had pizza night the other night and I decided to use half of the dough for pizza and save the other half for some quick cinnamon rolls. This makes it way too easy. Pizza dough can stay in the fridge for a couple of days and the flavor only gets better.
I promptly woke up, worked out and threw these in the oven. I had some happy campers around here this morning! I also felt really accomplished for really doing nothing. Seriously, anybody could do this and feel like a champion. I highly recommend this little cheat when you have guests arriving this holiday season!
Pizza Dough Cinnamon Rolls
(a method, not really a recipe)
pizza dough (enough for a 12 to 16 inch pizza)
about 1/4 cup dairy free butter (softened)
1/2 to 3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 to 2 cups powdered sugar
Roll out pizza dough to make a rectangle. Smear the butter over the dough and then sprinkle evenly with brown sugar and cinnamon making sure to leave about an inch of dough on one of the long sides. Starting the the long side that has sugar on it, roll the dough up. Slice the dough to make your rolls and place them cut side up in a 8 x 8 dish sprayed with cooking spray. Place in a cold oven and then turn the oven on 375 degrees. Bake the rolls for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from oven. Next mix a tablespoon of water at a time into the powdered sugar to make a glaze. Pour the glaze over the rolls while they are still warm.
*Putting these in a cold oven gives them a little proofing time while the oven preheats. It cuts down on time and they puff up very nicely!
