Here's another neat way to use pizza dough. Yummy cinnamon sticks. I saw something a similar on Guy's Big Bite, so I decided to try it out. Plus, I love cinnamon and I don't need to tell you about my love for bread.
I lightly pan-fried these in canola oil rather than doing the deep-fried way. Deep-frying absorbs way too much oil. This is not too oily and just right. ooks like you baked them in the oven. They begin to puff up within a few second of hitting the hot oil. It's really neat. This is so delicious with the cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top. Have it with some ice cream or whatever dessert you want. Reminds me of going to the county fair or an outdoor festival. It also reminds me of churros. I do love my churros. Or a doughnut. Yum!!
Pan-Fried Cinnamon Breadsticks
1 pizza dough
canola or peanut oil
1 Tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Combine the sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
Roll out the dough on a flat surface and cut them into strips the width can be to your choosing.
Coat the bottom of a skillet with oil. When it is hot enough, carefully place the dough in the oil. They will puff up after roughly 30 sec. Cook both both side for about 60 sec. Then place on a paper towel to remove the excess oil. Sprinkle the sticks with the cinnamon mixture. Serve warm or cooled.
