Pizza Dough Cinnamon Rolls

By Chef Tessa Turcotte-Novosedlik


  • 1 recipe Pizza Dough
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 6oz Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 2 cups Icing Sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/8 tsp Salt


  • Grease a 9x13” baking pan with softened butter or spray oil. Set aside.
  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and mix well until combined. Set aside.
  • Lightly flour a work surface. Place the pizza dough onto work surface and punch down to remove excess air. Roll the dough out to a roughly 24”x15” rectangle.
  • Using a spatula, smooth the cinnamon filling over the whole dough rectangle. Starting on the longer end, roll the dough up tightly.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut the cinnamon rolls into 12 equal portions and place into the greased 9x13” pan. Allow to rise for 20 minutes. While rising, preheat oven to 375F.
  • Once the cinnamon rolls have doubled in size, place in the preheated oven and bake for 20-22 minutes, or until golden.
  • While the buns are baking, make the cream cheese frosting. Place the softened cream cheese into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment or use a hand mixer and beat well. Add in the icing sugar, butter, vanilla and salt. Whip well.
  • When the rolls have slightly cooled, frost with cream cheese frosting and enjoy.
