Saving Dough

What can you make with pizza dough other than, well, pizza? Meet the adult Hot Pockets and cinnamon rolls you didn't know you could afford to make yourself, until now.


  • One pizza dough ball
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 8 to 10 half-and-half creamers


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out pizza dough into a large circle. Spread softened butter over dough. In a small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over buttered dough. Roll up dough into a large cylinder and cut into 8 pieces (about 3 inches thick). Place pieces in the cast-iron skillet and bake for about 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the powdered sugar and half-and-half. Drizzle over warm cinnamon rolls.
