30 Days of Bread: Cinnamon Rolls and Pizza Rolls

I use my Pizza Crust recipe for my cinnamon and pizza rolls.  I divide the recipe in half, using one half for the cinnamon rolls and one half for pizza rolls.  Two in one!

For cinnamon rolls: 

Make dough according to the pizza crust recipe.  Remove from bread machine and divide in half.  Let dough rest for 20 minutes.  Roll out dough into a rectangle shape roughly 16 x 21 inches ( I really have never measured...just press out the size of a large cookie sheet).

Mix sugar and cinnamon together.  Spread butter over dough and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.

1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, softened

Roll up jelly roll style and slice into 12 rolls.  Place in casserole dish. 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Cook rolls until slightly brown and firm.

Meanwhile beat together:      
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt

Spread on warm rolls and serve!

For pizza rolls:

Spread about 1/2 to 1 cup of spaghetti sauce in the bottom of a 13 x 9 inch casserole dish. 

Take the other half of dough and roll out to roughly the same size as your cinnamon rolls.  Coat dough with 1/2 cup of spaghetti sauce and whatever toppings you like (pepperoni, hamburger, green peppers, olives, mushrooms, cheese, etc.)

Roll up jelly roll style and slice into 12 rolls.

Place rolls into casserole dish and spoon a teaspoon of sauce on top.  Top with cheese and bake until golden brown and firm.

These make your house smell like a pizzeria!
