Ingredients
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons ground true cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla paste
  • 2 pounds prepared pizza dough from the Well Seasoned: A Gourmet Food Store freezer
  • For the egg wash:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • For the Icing:
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla paste
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease a 9-by-13-inch pan with nonstick spray.
  2. To prepare the filling: In a medium bowl, mix the melted butter with the sugar, flour, cinnamon and vanilla to combine. Set aside.
  3. To make the rolls: On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into a ½-inch-thick rectangle, about 12 inches by 15 inches. Dollop the cinnamon filling all over the dough, then spread evenly to cover, reaching all the way to the edges. Starting with the long side of the rectangle, roll the dough into a tight spiral. When the dough is fully rolled, use a serrated knife to slice the dough into 9 even pieces, about 1½ inches thick. Transfer the cinnamon rolls to the prepared pan, leaving space between them for the dough to expand. Next, in a small bowl, whisk the egg and water to combine. Brush the egg wash onto the rolls, then transfer the baking dish to the oven. Bake until the rolls are golden and the filling is bubbly, 30 to 40 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes.
  4. To make the icing: In a medium bowl, whisk the icing sugar with the milk and vanilla to combine. Drizzle the frosting over the slightly cooled rolls. Serve warm.
