Makes about 24
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
- 8 ounces pizza dough (at room temperature)
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1/2 tablespoon water
- 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a mini muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
On a lightly floured surface, roll the pizza dough into a rectangle, about 12 inches long by 8 inches wide. Sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon over the pizza dough. Starting from a long (12-inch) side, roll the dough up tightly into a log. Use a sharp knife to cut the log into slices (approximately 24, this will be about 1/2-inch slices).
Place the slices into the prepared muffin tin. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the edges are light golden brown. Meanwhile, stir the glaze ingredients in a small bowl; set aside. Allow the cinnamon buns to cool about 2 minutes, then remove from pan and flip upside down. Cool an additional 2 minutes. Dip the cinnamon buns into the glaze, allowing excess to drip off the sides. Serve the cinnamon buns warm; store leftovers in an airtight container up to two days, or freeze.
