Cinnamon Swirl Pizza
« on: June 13, 2014, 09:26:54 PM »
I saw a recipe for a Cinnamon Swirl Pizza on facebook posted by Pizza Today. http://www.pizzatoday.com/recipes/cinnamon-swirl-pizza/ 

I recalled I had some frozen Detroit style dough balls in the freezer that had been there awhile.  I took the 3 dough balls out of the freezer and put them in the fridge.  I modified the recipe some, used butter to grease the pan, added raisins and decided to use an icing topping.  My piping bag broke when I first was applying the icing.  I then spread the icing with a knife.

That Cinnamon Swirl pizza was very light and moist.  My granddaughter, great-granddaughter and I each had a slice.  We thought it was very good.  The icing topping has now harden some more.

Jon,

Thanks!  I did not give those raisins a rum, brandy or bourbon soak.  That is a great idea!  :drool: I can imagine a NY style dough or other doughs might work well for a Cinnamon Swirl Pizza.  I baked at about 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes because the ropes I rolled were larger.  I wonder how the Cinnamon Swirl Pizza would work in my deck oven. :-\

Qarl,


I did not use the method for icing in the recipe link below.  What I used for the icing was confectioners sugar, light butter, real vanilla and milk. To make the icing better.  http://www.joyofbaking.com/ConfectionersFrosting.html 

Another recipe for the icing somewhat along the lines I used.  http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/vanilla-buttercream-frosting/39107a19-be94-4571-9031-f1fc5bd1d606 

I have used the quick way of mixing a basic icing taught to me by my Mother for cakes and cupcakes..  I have learned about how much confectioners sugar, butter, vanilla and milk to add.  I just mix the basic ingredients with a mixer, and if a little more confectioners sugar/or milk is needed I then add a little more.

Probably a cream cheese icing would also be good.

Maybe butter is okay now since “butter is better”.   >:D

Dave,

Thanks!  It tastes just about like a Cinnabon.  It held up well until the next day just sitting out.  When microwaving it becomes better.  My daughter asked me if I would make a Cinnamon Swirl Pizza tomorrow for her to take into work on Monday.  Since I only have one more frozen Detroit style dough I would have to mix more dough.  I have to think about doing that.   :-D

A friend of mine on facebook also tried a Swirl Pizza yesterday.  These are those photos.  I think my friends pizza looks a lot better than mine.

Mark,

If you ever decide to try one let us know what your wife says.  She might be begging you to make a cinnamon swirl “whatever” you call it with pizza dough.  :P  Wait, you mean your wife isn't a pizza head like you?  :o

Bob,

I do really have pie envy for my friends Swirl Pizza.  >:D My daughter asked me yesterday again if I would make another one for her workplace.  I told her it would be much easier for me if I just made more dough today at market and then made her one on Wednesday at home.  I am not sure if I am going to try my friends method or not.  I might try a NY style dough.

How about rolling the ropes in cinnamon-sugar before forming the pizza?

Craig,

Your idea sounds very interesting.  :chef: When I posted my photos on facebook, my friend asked me what was that brown gooey stuff on top of my pizza.  I said that was the cinnamon sugar mixture and that was the way the cinnamon and sugar baked when sprinkled on top of the melted butter.  I am guessing that way of baking made something like a sticky bun gooey stuff. 

Since I used cold butter to grease the pan the pizza did not burn or fry on the bottom.  The bottom crust was almost completely white. 

Do you think the bottom would burn at all if the ropes were rolled in the cinnamon-sugar before forming the pizza?

My friend keep brushing butter on the pizza while it was baking.

I think it would be OK - maybe you would want to lower the oven temp some - 350-400F maybe?

Craig,

Thanks!  I did bake at about 400 degrees F, so I will turn the oven down more if I try rolling the ropes in the cinnamon/sugar mixture.
