Mini Cinnamon Rolls

cinnrollI made my friend Maria’s  BBQ chicken pizza again last night and the crust makes enough for 2 pizzas, since I didn’t want 2 pizzas I thought “oh make mini cinny’s”.  We love cinnamon rolls in this house so I knew I was making the right choice.  The next time you make some pizza you might want to make some of these babies for dessert your family will love it.

Mini Cinnamon Rolls

Maria’s Pizza Dough Recipe:
2 cups warm water
2 tsp yeast
1-1/2 tsp salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon olive oil
4-5 cups flour
Cinnamon filling:
1/8 cup of flour
1/4 cup of  melted butter
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 T. cinnamon
3/4 cup powdered sugar
4 teaspoon milk

Step 1: In a large mixing bowl, pour water into a bowl and sprinkle with yeast. Let sit for a few minutes, then add salt, sugar and oil, stir.
Step 2: Add flour and mix on low with a dough hook or stir by hand until dough doesn’t stick to sides. Add a little more flour if necessary but try not to exceed 5 1/2 cups of flour.
Step 3: For making the mini cinnamon rolls divide the dough in half.  One for pizza, one for the cinny’s. Now divide the dough for the cinny’s in half again.  Roll out on about 14 in long and 3 in wide.
Step 4: Mix all filling ingredients together. Spread filling onto the dough,
roll the dough together to seal.  Cut the dough with dental floss about 2 inches wide per roll.  Spray 9 in round pan with cooking spray and put your rolls in.
Step 5: Bake in 350 degree oven and bake for 15 min.  Cool for 10 min. turn out onto plate and let cool completely if you can.  
Step 6: Make glaze by mixing the powdered sugar with the milk, whisking until lumps are out.  Drizzle on top and enjoy.

These look so inviting! I should do this for a back-to-school breakfast. My daughters love cinnamon rolls!

I'm sure your girls would love a treat like that before school.

That looks delicious! I have never made cinnamon rolls before as I thought they looked too difficult but your recipe looks very manageable. Thanks for sharing it.

Best wishes,

Thanks Natasha, If you want to try out making them but are afraid of making dough use crescent rolls or French bread dough in the refrigerator section of the grocery store. Hope that helps 🙂

What a great idea to use the extra dough for cinnamon rolls! I will have to do that next time. They looks so tasty!!!

What a great idea! I'd be very popular indeed in our house if I made homemade pizza dough one night and those scrumptious cinnamon rolls for breakfast the next! Thanks for sharing a great idea and your delicious recipes.

Thanks April, using it in the morning would be a super idea.

Those look sinfully yummy! I'm curious about the pizza dough… how long do you let it rise before rolling out? I have a quick rise recipe that uses more yeast but rises for about 10 minutes. It also uses more oil, which I'd love to be able to cut down on.

I made the dough first then let it rise while I got the rest of the pizza ingredients ready. Maybe 1/2 hour until I got to the rolls, not long.

What a great used for left over pizza dough.

This looks really good. I love the presentation. And there's nothing better than a good cinnamon roll, is there?
