Copycat Cinnasticks

When my husband and I were in college, there was a Pizza Hut buffet.  We loved going to eat there, because it was all you can eat Pizza Hut pizza, breadsticks, and CINNASTICKS!!  The cinnasticks were our favorite part of the buffet!
When I found a recipe for these copycat cinnasticks on Pinterest, I knew I had to try making them.  We cut some of them into bigger squares and some of them into sticks. These are a great alternative to buying cinnasticks from a pizza place.   These were so easy to make, we used refrigerated pizza dough, and they tasted really good.  

Copycat Cinnasticks
(Recipe adapted from Jam Hands)
Pre-made pizza dough
Butter flavored oil (I used butter flavored popcorn oil)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon melted butter
Splash of milk (I used soy milk, but you can use regular milk)
1.  Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  
2.  Spread the dough out onto the cookie sheet and brush with the butter flavored oil.  Bake for about 11-13 minutes or until golden brown.
3.  Meanwhile, combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and stir together.  Then combine the powdered sugar, vanilla, melted butter, and splash of milk into a medium sized bowl and combine to make the icing.  Use the amount of milk necessary to make a thicker icing or a thinner icing.  
4.  Once the dough is out of the oven, sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar mixture, then pour the icing on top.  Then cut the dough into squares or sticks.

  10. We loved Pizza Huts Cinnastix! Thanks for sharing at Must Try Mondays!

  11. This is a great idea. We have a mom & pop pizza shop down the road and they sell their dough balls for $1.00. Hubby and I love making pizza with them and have talked about a pizza party with guests. This would be the PERFECT dessert- and I’d already have the perfect dough! Does it have to be butter flavored oil or would butter do? If you’re not too busy, I’d love if you would come link up to Sweet Sharing Monday!

    • That’s really nice you can get good dough for cheap. I used the oil but I don’t see why you can’t use melted butter, just enough to lightly brush over the dough. The only purpose was to really just add butter flavor to the dough, which the butter would do. I hope you enjoy it!
