Pizza Dough Cinnamon Rolls

If there is anything that would make your homemade pizza night be a little bit more yummy, it's using the leftover pizza dough to make these warm and fragrant cinnamon rolls. When I make my pizza dough recipe, it makes enough dough for two very large pizzas. Being that I only need one pizza to feed my little family, I sometimes stear away from baking up the other crust for future pizza and bless my family with some delicious cinnamon rolls for dessert and breakfast the next morning. Have a fun family game night with pizza and cinnamon rolls!

Prepare the pizza crust from my homemade pizza blog post.

Ingredients for the rolls:
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
1 tsp nutmeg

Ingredients for the icing:
1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
2 TBSP milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

Roll the dough out into a thin square. Spread with half a stick of softened butter. Spread the brown sugar evenly over the dough, going clear to the very edge. Sprinkle very heavily with cinnamon. Sprinkle the nutmeg. Roll the dough towards you keeping it very tight and even down the edges. Cut the log into thirds. Cut those 3 into thirds to get 9 rolls. Place into a greased 9x9 pan. Cover with a clean towel and raise for an hour. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Don't let them get too brown.

Whisk the icing ingredients together until it's a thick syrup consistency. If yours ends up too thin, add more powdered sugar. If it's too pastey, add another splash of milk. Easy! Pour icing over them while they're still warm... Devour!
