Something Else to Do With Pizza Dough: Cinnamon Bread with Icing

The other day I wanted something sweet, but my cupboard was bare and I didn't want to go to the store. Then I remembered that some pizza places make variously shaped cinnamon things with pizza dough. I thought to myself, self you can do that. I replied, really? You think I can? I told myself I could. Then I looked around to make sure no one had noticed me being extra nuts. The real Bob had, but I somehow doubt he cares. Of course they say if you can't talk to yourself who can you talk to? But please don't ask me who "they" are. Heh.

Ok, enough about my mental problems, I'm sure people are more interested in my sweets problem. So. This is simple and fantastic, you just need some pizza dough, butter, cinnamon and vanilla sugar. You could use normal sugar, but I didn't want to. All you need to do is butter up a cake pan, or something similar, and stretch out the dough in the bottom.

How thick it is determines the texture, thin will make it crispy, thick will make it more bread like. The choice is yours and yours alone. Don't be shy with the butter either, this is a dessert and more butter means more ... well, butter. Also without it you don't get the golden crispy bottom. But you should bear in mind that you're going to be slathering the top with more butter mixed with cinnamon and sugar before it goes in the oven. Those are the next two steps.

It only takes about 10-15 minutes in a 425 degree oven and then it's done, assuming you don't want icing. Oh, you want icing? Well, I mixed up some cream cheese, vanilla and sugar. Then I slathered it on the hot, cinnamony goodness. Then I ate it and it was fantastic. The bottom was golden and crispy, the top was gooey, buttery, cinnamony and marvelous. I have now made this several times, although I don't have a recipe written out. I'll just have to make it again and write it all down. Such sacrifice, such selflessness. These are the things I do for you guys. Heh.

I've seen this only once before, it looks fab, never tried it but always tempted when I see it at the same place.
