We’re ending our week of pizza dough with a dessert, our cinnamon sugar messy bread with vanilla icing! It’s super easy to make and fun to eat. I made mini loaves because I thought they were cute, but you can also make one large loaf (baked for a longer amount of time). These are the mini loaf pans that I used. This is a fun way to turn a savory pizza dough recipe into a sweet treat.
I think everyone should bake a prosciutto, butternut squash and kale pizza this weekend, serve it with parmesan-garlic straws and finally finish the meal off with everyones own individual cinnamon sugar messy bread. It’s a great way to use a basic pizza dough, three different ways.
Enjoy! xx Jenny

- 1 ½ tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Recipe instruction visual controls:
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Cut dough into small, 1 inch pieces. Set aside.
