Quick Cinnamon Sugar Twists from Pre-made Pizza Dough

I was cruising past the deli section of my local grocery store and noticed that the pizza dough was on sale. Ninety-nine-cents? I thought. I can work with that. So, for less than the price of a candy bar, here are a dozen-and-a-half hot and chewy Cinnamon Twists. Quick, easy and yummy even at full price. (For a savory version, dip in butter and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and Italian herbs.)
Pizza Dough Cinnamon Twists

1 lb. of pizza dough
flour for dusting
3 Tbs butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tb cinnamon

1.) Dust your surface with some flour. I used whole wheat. I know, kind of besides the point, right? Anyway, roll the dough out into a semi-rectangle like so.
 2.) Cut the dough into 9 strips and then cut those in half for a total of 18.
3.) Alternately dip the strips of dough into the melted butter and then roll into the sugar mix.And don't forget to smile.
 
 4.) Twist the strips and lay out on parchment-lined sheets.
 5.) Bake in 375' oven for 18 minutes. Serve hot. But really they're good cold too.

    1. Thanks Danielle! They're not as airy as churros since they're made from pizza dough. They're more like a yeast doughnut. The texture would probably be lighter if you wanted to fry them and then roll them in sugar. My boys both asked for these for breakfast this morning. I think I've created little sugar monsters. :-)
