for the icing:


  • Roll pizza dough out into a soft edged rectangle, approximately 10x15. {You want the dough to be 1/4 inch thick.}
  • Cut into 1/2 inch strips and wrap two strips around each other to create twists.
  • Stir sugar and cinnamon together in a shallow dish and set aside. Dip each twist into melted butter and then into the cinnamon sugar. Place onto parchment paper lined baking sheet. Continue this process until all twists are coated.
  • Preheat oven to 350. Let twists rise on top of warm oven for 30 minutes while oven preheats. Bake 15-17 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
  • While twists are baking, stir powdered sugar together with milk and vanilla until smooth. Drizzle over warm twists and serve.
