Cinnamon Nuggets

We made calzones the other night and I’ve got an enormous amount of pizza dough left over. I wasn’t planning on making more pizza, and I haven’t really been in the mood to make homemade hot pockets, so today I decided to try making homemade cinna-stix. Or nuggets rather.


  • pizza dough
  • splenda
  • cinnamon
  • buttery spray (I like Parkay)


  1. Take your pizza dough (however much you’ve got left) and roll out into a log shape.
  2. Cut your nuggets (should be about 1″ around)
  3. Spray each nugget with buttery spray, flip, repeat.
  4. Mix Splenda and cinnamon (however strong you like) in a ziplock baggie.
  5. Toss nuggets in the baggie about two at a time and shake until coated.
  6. Lay them out on a baking sheet or pizza stone and bake at 400 degrees for 13 minutes.
  7. Enjoy!
