Think of this as an open-faced cinnamon roll. Other toppings, such as chocolate or butterscotch chips, coconut, jelly beans, and nuts, can be added.
Makes two 12-inch pizzas
- 1 pound frozen bread dough, thawed
- ½ cup butter, melted
- ⅔ cup brown sugar, packed
- ⅔ cup white sugar
- ⅓ cup cinnamon
- 1 cup raisins (optional)
- 3 cups confectioners' sugar
- ¼ cup heavy cream
Place thawed bread dough in a bowl in a warm spot. Cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
Remove to a floured surface and divide in half. Roll each half into a 12 inch round and place in a lightly greased pizza pan.
Brush melted butter liberally over each crust. In a bowl, combine sugars and cinnamon. Allow children to spoon cinnamon sugar over crust until well covered. Add raisins if desired.
Bake pizzas at 400° for 15 to 18 minutes or until puffy and browned. Let stand for a few minutes.
Whisk together confectioners' sugar and cream until smooth. Pour into a squeeze bottle and allow children to squeeze crosshatches of glaze over the pizzas. Serve in wedges.
A Little Dough
Frozen bread dough makes great homemade sweet rolls. If a “pizza” format isn't important, follow the above recipe and tightly roll topped dough into a log instead of leaving open-faced. Slice the log into rolls and let stand a few minutes to rise. Then bake until browned. Drizzle with confectioners' sugar glaze or brush with melted jam.
