Mini Cinnamon Buns from

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.
