Cinnamon Roll Pizza
By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime
It’s #BrunchWeek! All week long I will be posting yummy recipes for brunch along with a gazillion other bloggers, and there is a giveaway for fabulous prizes from the event sponsors (Contest info will be at the bottom of this post).
I have to admit I got the idea for this gem while I was browsing the bakeshop at Kroger. They had some sort of coffee cake topped with streusel in a pizza shape and I thought it could be easily made at home with a few simple ingredients.
The type of streusel used in this is common in the food service industry, and is often made in huge amounts in a big mixer, and the streusel can be refrigerated or frozen to use later to quickly top coffee cakes, muffins and pies. You can generally tell by the color of the streusel as it has that tell-tale yellow cake color if this type of topping has been used.
The pizza itself is easy to spread out on a pizza pan with a piece of parchment over it. You can use a rolling pin, but I actually slide the wedge of my hand across the parchment the same way I might occasionally spread out pizza dough. I find I have greater control that way and can keep the circles from the rolls fairly uniform in placement across the pizza.
This was well received by all and I am sure it is something your kids and family will absolutely love!
Join me tomorrow as #BrunchWeek continues and I share my recipe for Cinnamon Apple Dutch Baby made with Lady Alice Apples from samples sent to me by Rainier Fruits and sugar from Dixie Crystals.

Cinnamon Roll Pizza
- 1 (12.4 ounce tube) Pillsbury Cinnamon Roll dough
- 1 (9 ounce box) Jiffy Yellow Cake Mix
- 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans
- cinnamon (as pizza sprinkle) (optional)
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Mix cold butter cubes into cake mix until combined and crumbly.
- Place cinnamon roll dough in a circular pattern on an 11-inch pizza pan and roll out edge to edge with parchment between the dough and rolling pin (to keep from sticking).
- Peel off parchment paper, then sprinkle with streusel mixture, then top with pecans.
- Bake cinnamon roll pizza for 12 minutes or until browned at the edges and cooked in the center.
- Open icing packet and thin with 1-2 teaspoons milk or water to get a drizzling consistency.
- Drizzle pizza with icing and sprinkle with extra cinnamon (optional).
- Cut into wedges and serve.
