Holiday Breakfast

When I was growing up we often spent Christmas at my grandparents. I always loved being at their house at Christmas time. It was always so festive. A beautiful Christmas Tree and decorations all over the house. My Granny did a lot of plastic canvas needle work and she had these fun holiday baskets scattered around that were always full of candy. Perfect for sneaking, even when you weren’t supposed to be eating it!

Christmas Eve was always steak and baked potatoes, but Christmas morning we had a huge breakfast. It was the only meal of the day so you had to eat up. Eggs, grits, biscuits, gravy, and of course someone was sure to have popped open a canister of cinnamon rolls. Those were the days. Of course now, being gluten free, Christmas Breakfast has changed quite a bit.

Gooey Cinnamon Rolls

In case you didn’t already know this, gluten free cinnamon rolls are hard to find. They do not make canisters that you can just pop open. I actually hadn’t even had a cinnamon roll since going gluten free until recently, and boy, have I been craving them.

I know a lot of people like the kind with the frosting on top, but I love the ones with gooey caramel. Gooey Cinnamon Rolls are my favorite. They are like heaven, especially when they are warm out of the oven.

Now, I am not a huge fan of any recipe that takes a whole lot of steps. If there is a shortcut that will still get me a good result, I am all for it. When it comes to gluten free cinnamon rolls, I have found the answer.

Enjoy Life Pizza Crust

Gooey cinnamon rolls are the perfect start to any breakfast & they are Top 8 Allergen free!Enter Enjoy Life Pizza Crust. I bet you had no idea you could make gooey cinnamon rolls from pizza crust. So easy, so delicous. Plus, the by using the Enjoy Life Pizza Crust, making these little beauties Top 8 allergen free was a breeze!

 Recipe Notes

Honestly, these little babies are easy to make, but there are few little tricks.

Enjoy Life Pizza Crust Mix

Follow the instructions on the package, but you are going to roll the whole thing into a big rectangle, about 12 x 15. Don’t over knead it or it may get tough. If you can’t find Enjoy Life Pizza Crust Mix you can order it online or use another brand. If you use another brand, I can’t guarantee the same results.

Dairy Free Butter

An essential part of any cinnamon roll is the butter. I used Earth Balance Soy Free Buttery Spread and it worked great, but you can feel free to use your favorite dairy free butter.

That’s about it! The only other two things you need are sugar and cinnamon. Doesn’t get any easier than that!

When you try them, be sure to take a picture and tag me @eatatourtable and @enjoylifefoods on instagram. Don’t forget the hash tag #bakefreely!

If you are looking for a Gluten Free Yeast Free Cinnamon Roll, try these from Veggie Balance.

Happy Gluten Free eating!

    I just finished making a batch of these for the family.. they are delicious! Thank you so much for this fabulous recipe- so easy & wonderful, and I actually have a few boxes of the pizza crust mix and we made it up the regular way a few weeks ago and none of us really liked it as pizza crust! ? BUT as cinnamon rolls the mix is great! I’m so glad it won’t be going to waste but turning into ooey gooey yumminess! I substituted coconut sugar for half of the sugar and used melted coconut oil with a pinch of salt in lieu of the butter. Also, I’m going to add diced pecans to the next batch too- yum!!!
