NUTTY CARAMEL STICKY BUNS

Make some ooey-gooey sticky buns with leftover pizza dough.

Homemade caramel sauce and a sweet filling turn extra dough into something extra special.

NUTTY CARAMEL STICKY BUNS

1/2 recipe pizza dough

(for a delicious dough recipe, see my Pizza Margherita recipe)

1/3 cup coarsely chopped pecans

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon butter, divided

1-1/4 cup brown sugar, divided

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon cinnamon

DIRECTIONS

In a saucepan, melt 6 tablespoons butter over low heat.  Add 3/4 cup brown sugar and cook over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.  Gradually add heavy cream and bring to a boil.  Remove from heat and add vanilla.  Pour 1 cup of the caramel sauce into a 13×9 inch baking pan sprayed with cooking spray.  Tilt pan to evenly coat with sauce.  In a small bowl, combine remaining 1/2 cup brown sugar and cinnamon.  On a well floured surface, roll dough out to a 10×15 inch rectangle.  Melt remaining 3 tablespoons butter and brush over surface of dough.  Sprinkle brown sugar mixture evenly over dough, leaving a 1/2 inch margin.  Scatter chopped pecans over sugar mixture.  Starting with a long side, roll dough up tightly, pinching the seam to close.  Slice into to 12 sections.  Place cut side up in baking dish.  Cover with plastic wrap and place in a warm and draft free spot for 45 minutes.  Bake uncovered in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.  Remove from oven and immediately invert onto a serving plate.
