Pizza Buns

Pizza buns are like cinnamon buns (or rolls as some may say) - but instead of using a lethal sweet concoction of sugar, cinnamon and butter inside - you add some savory goodness.

The recipe is pretty simple - b/c you just use whatever regular bread recipe you use. I used a combo of whole wheat and white flour on these ones.

You prepare your dough as if you are making cinnamon buns - all the same steps except what you put inside.


Once you've rolled out the dough - spread on a thin layer of pizza sauce, sprinkle with shredded cheese and pepperoni (as much or as little as you want). Roll it up - slice and put in a pan to rise the second time.


Bake for about 25 min at about 375 degrees...

It's a little more healthy than a slice of pizza (well guess depends on how "healthy" your bread recipe is) and less messy - so it's something that is easy to take along in a lunch or in the car. They are best a little warm - but they are good at room temperature also.

Ds loves them...dd isn't as crazy about them...I think partly due to the fact that there isn't a whole lot of cheese and pepperoni inside...but again - you can add as much or as little as you desire.
