Easy Cinnamon Buns Recipe

Pizza dough makes these quick & easy.

1 ball homemade or store-bought pizza dough (enough to make a 12” pizza)
Softened butter
Brown sugar
Chopped pecans


Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Step 2: Take the pizza dough and roll it out on a lightly floured surface until it’s a long rectangle, about 1/4” thick.

Step 3: Spread the dough with a generous layer of softened butter, lots of brown sugar, chopped pecans and cinnamon, making sure to leave a 1/2” of clean space around the dough’s perimeter.

Step 4: Roll lengthways into a long log and seal the edges. Set the log into a buttered baking pan, such as a pie pan, spread it with more butter and sprinkle on more brown sugar. Then slice the log into 2” rounds, turning them upright and fitting them snugly into the greased baking pan.

Step 5: Pop the pan into the preheated oven for about 30 minutes, and voilà, amazing buttery hot cinnamon buns.
