Cinnamon rolls

BrokeAssGourmet cinnamon rolls!

Pizza dough recipe:
2.5c flour
1c warm water
1 packet dry active yeast
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp olive oil + more for bowl
1 tsp salt

Combine water, yeast and sugar and set aside in a warm place until it begins to foam (4-5 minutes). Meanwhile in a bowl, mixer w/paddle or a food processor, combine salt and flour. Slowly stream in the yeast mixture and add the olive oil. If using a mixer or food processor, turn on and allow ingredients to combine until they form a ball of dough. If you’re using a mixer, now is the time to switch to the dough hook. Knead (either by turning on your machine or by hand) for 2-3 minutes. Set aside in an oiled bowl, covered with a damp dish towel in a warm place (like an oven that has been turned on and then turned off and allowed to cool a bit but is still warm) for 30 minutes. After dough has doubled in size, punch down and allow to rise for another 30 minutes (20 if you’re impatient) then you can do almostANYTHING! See below my favorite uses for pizza dough.
2 tbsp unsalted butter at room temp
2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
2 tsp cinnamon
.5c sugar

.5c powder sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet with oil or cooking spray and set aside.
Mix cinnamon and regular sugar in a bowl. Combine well.
On a floured surface, roll pizza dough into a 14” x 10” rectangle. Use a spatula to spread 4 tbsp of the soft butter over the dough, making sure the entire thing is covered.
Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture over the butter, making sure all is covered. Start at the bottom of the dough and roll the longest way from the bottom to the top, pinching to seal until you have an 10” cylinder.
Cut the cylinder into 10 1” pieces and transfer to prepared baking sheet.
Bake cinnamon rolls for 12-15 minutes or until outsides are golden brown and butter-cinnamon mixture begins to lightly bubble. Allow to cool slightly.
Whisk together melted butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and 2 tbsp water until creamy. Add a bit more powdered sugar if needed to achieve a smooth glaze.
Drizzle the glaze over the warm cinnamon rolls and serve.
Makes 10 cinnamon rolls.
