Homemade Pizza Buns Stuffed with Pepperoni and Cheese
Beautiful, spiral cinnamon buns are actually what inspired these adorable mini pizza spirals. They're made using the same basic method as cinnamon buns, too, except that we've swapped a basic yeast dough for a flavorful olive oil pizza dough, and instead of a cinnamon sugar filling these pizza buns are stuffed with pizza sauce, melty mozzarella cheese, and chopped pepperoni.
Pizza buns are sure to be a hit with kids of all ages (our toddler devoured them just as quickly as my husband and I did!). Whether you're serving them during the Big Game or for your family's weekly pizza night, these pizza buns are sure impress!Print
