Pizza Buns

It's been our tradition to spend New Year's Eve at home, and extend our evening meal over the last few hours of the past year. My wife found a recipe on the KA site for Pizza Buns, and asked me to make them. They are simply a soft dough, stuffed with the usual pizza toppings, shaped and cut like cinnoman buns. I made these with italian sausage, a little pepperoni, and cheese. They are par-baked for 15 minutes, topped with a brushing of pizza sauce and more cheese, and returned to the oven to finish baking.

Happy New Year everyone!

Those look great.  I thought I had read every recipe on the KA site but I sure missed that one.  Definitely going on the "to do" list.

But I can't find the recipe on the KA site - mainly because I'm English and unfamiliar with the site ... can you either point me (us?) to it or tell us in your own words, please?


TIA

When I was in elementary school, back in the 60's, they made the best yeast rolls ever in the lunchroom.  They used what tasted like the same soft and rich dough to make small individual pizzas.  I imagine this recipe might come close to replicating that memory.

 - for the link. The recipe is now in my personal recipe folder. All I have to do is remember to use it ...

Nice!  I can make these and freeze them for a busy school night.  Thank you for posting the link.  By the way, what's pizza flavor?  I have pizza spice but not sure if it's the same thing.  Al

a tablespoon of mixed Italian herb in the dough and a tablespoon of oregano in the store brought sauce. Also some parmigiano cheese in both the dough and the filling.

I didn't have, nor do I intend to buy KA's Pizza dough enhancer. What i did do was add, to the dough, a Tbls. of a mixture of Kosher Salt, and dried basil, tyme, rosemary, oregano, and parmesan cheese. I also put a Tbls. of chopped fennel seed, and a 1/2 tsp. of red pepper flakes in the already seasoned sweet Italian sausage.
