They look like a cinnamon roll but taste like pizza.


  • 1 batch fresh pizza dough
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • approximately 1 tsp salt
  • 3 cups cherry tomatoes, halved and/or quartered
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp finely shredded lemon peel
  • 1/2 tsp finely ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup crumbled, cooked bacon
  • 1 cup basil leaves


  1. Preheat oven to 425F. In a small bowl, mash together the garlic and a large pinch of salt. Toss with tomatoes, Parmesan, 1/4 cup olive oil, lemon peel, pepper, and 1/2 tsp salt.
  2. Roll out pizza dough on a floured surface to a 22 x 14-inch rectangle. Sprinkle bacon and basil over the dough. Spread tomatoes over the surface, leaving about 1 to 2 inches on each border. Carefully roll dough from one long side to the other. Using a serrated knife, cut 1-1 1/2 inch pieces off (like a cinnamon roll).
  3. Carefully place rolls, cut side up, on a baking sheet 2 inches apart. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until crusts are golden. Sprinkle with additional fresh basil before serving.
