Italian Cinnamon-Sugar Doughnuts

These easy doughnuts are made of pizza dough!

Ingredients

1/2
pound pizza dough
flour for dusting
1/2
cup sugar
1
tbsp cinnamon
vegetable oil for frying

Directions

  • 1 Gently roll the dough out into an 8” x 8” square on a lightly floured surface. Use a wine glass to cut as many 3” circles out of the dough as possible.
  • 2 Use a narrow shot glass or large thimble to cut out a smaller hole inside the circle so it looks like a doughnut (save the cut-out holes to make smaller doughnut holes).
  • 3 In a medium bowl mix the sugar and cinnamon until fully incorporated.
  • 4 In a deep frying pan or pot, heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Fry the doughnuts and doughnut holes 2 or 3 at a time for about one minute per side or until lightly golden brown. Using tongs, transfer the doughnuts and doughnut holes 1 at a time into the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Use your hands to coat well with the cinnamon-sugar and transfer to a plate. Repeat until all doughnuts and doughnut holes have been cooked and coated.
  • 5 Serve hot with coffee or tea, for dessert or a very special breakfast.

Dessert Alert: Italian Cinnamon-Sugar Doughnuts!

As prepared by Broke Ass Gourmet,

Italian-style doughnuts make a great dinner party dessert or weekend brunch treat with friends!


If you can believe it, the Italians found yet another use for pizza dough: doughnuts! These simple, yet classic, Italian Cinnamon-Sugar Doughnuts are nothing more than lightly fried pizza dough. But a quick dip in some hot oil, plus a dusting of cinnamon and sugar, and they taste entirely different. It’s also not necessary to actually deep-fry them—an inch or so of vegetable oil in a deep saucepan or pot will do.

homemade italaian doughnut recipe

To make about eight doughnuts, you’ll need:

1/2 pound pizza dough

Flour for dusting

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp ground cinnamon

Vegetable oil for frying

Gently roll the dough out into an 8-by-8-inch square on a lightly floured surface. Use a wine glass to cut as many 3-inch circles out of the dough as possible. To cut out the smaller circle inside (and make it look like a doughnut!), use a small shot glass or large thimble. (Save the cut-out holes to make smaller doughnut holes.)

In a medium bowl mix the sugar and cinnamon.

Pour vegetable oil about one inch deep in a pot or a frying pan with high sides (you don’t want hot grease spattering all over). Heat the oil until it sizzles when you throw in a small piece of dough. Fry the doughnuts and doughnut holes two or three at a time for about one minute per side, or until they’re light golden brown. Using tongs, transfer the doughnuts and doughnut holes, one at a time, into the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Use your hands to coat each one well with the cinnamon-sugar and then transfer to a plate. Repeat until all doughnuts and doughnut holes have been cooked and coated.
