quick and easy cinnamon rolls by Edible Times

Quick and easy cinnamon rolls


Turn leftover pizza dough into breakfast!  Any kind of yeast-leavened dough will work, just be sure to use it within a day or so, or the rolls will be less likely to rise. 



Cinnamon rolls

  • 8 oz pizza dough, store bought or pre-made
  • Brown sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Butter, melted

Cream cheese glaze

  • ¼ cup cream cheese, softened
  • 2-4 tbsp milk, any fat percentage
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • confectioner's sugar, for frosting


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.  Combine brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl, measure amounts to your taste and the number of rolls you choose to make.  Add a pinch of salt.
  2. On a floured surface, roll dough into a large rectangle, as thin as possible.  Cut into three or six strips, lengthwise. Brush all with melted butter.  Sprinkle a generous mound of sugar mixture along one side of each strip. Roll each strip tightly lengthwise, then spiral dough from one end to the other to create roll.
  3. Arrange rolls in a greased, glass baking dish or pie plate, leaving a small amount of space between each. Bake 10-12 minutes, but try not let rolls brown (they won't be as soft).
  4. To make frosting, whisk cream cheese with confectioner's sugar to your taste. Thin with a little milk if desired. Spread over warm cinnamon rolls.


If you don't have cream cheese on hand, a simple glaze of any milk or citrus juice with confectioner's sugar whisked in gets it done.
