The only time I order pizza is when I’m with a large group of people and we’re too lazy to agree on a restaurant to have dinner. We all have our favorite pizzeria, but when it’s Domino’s for the night, I insist on ordering a side of cinna sticks. Cinna sticks are an incredibly smart creation on Domino’s behalf; think of cinnamon sugar coated bread sticks and you have cinna sticks! Now that I discovered the secret behind how to make this dessert, I can enjoy these whenever I want.
- 1 package prepared pizza crust
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/2 lb powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

**Helpful tips and common mistakes
When preparing cinna sticks, choose your favorite pizza dough recipe or use prepared dough from the super market. A Domino’s employee pointed out that the cooks perforate the dough before baking to create a chewier bread stick; I chose to use all-purpose flour to create the same texture. Typically, bread flour yields a crispy pizza while all-purpose yields a chewier one.
If making your own pizza dough, you will realize just how easy it is to prepare. Simply mix the ingredients and let it rise.
Once the dough has risen, roll it out, brush butter and sprinkle cinnamon sugar. The same Domino’s employee commented that cinnamon sugar is sprinkled on top after it is baked at the franchise, but I personally prefer to add it before baking. This allows the sugar to caramelize in the oven.
You can cut the sticks into longer or shorter pieces, thicker or thinner. I chose to cut mine into longer skinnier sticks, but that was just a personal choice. There is no need to space out the sticks when baking since they do not spread while baking.
I initially only used half the butter and sugar but realized that the cinna sticks were too bland. The amount listed in the recipe was the perfect amount as the bread sticks were the perfect amount of sweet. Drizzle with frosting or dip the cinna sticks in the icing for a complete dessert. Who would have thought the secret behind cinna sticks was pizza dough, butter, sugar and cinnamon!
