Welcome to Riches to Rags by Dori. This is a place where I share a little bit of everything. My experiences, the good the bad and the ugly. Life isn't easy but worth living and my hope is that we can get through it together.

Pizza Crust Donuts - Super Easy!

Pizza Crust Donuts

 Doesn't get much easier and cheaper than this, plus it is bite size which is so much easier and less messy to deal with.


4    Cups vegetable or canola oil
1    Can Pillsbury® refrigerated classic pizza crust
¼  Cup sugar
1    teaspoon ground cinnamon


1. In deep heavy 3-quart saucepan, heat oil to 350°F.

2. Meanwhile, remove dough from can; do not unroll. Cut dough into 12 (1-inch) slices. Cut each slice in half crosswise to make 24 pieces. Roll each piece into ball; set aside.

3. In small brown paper bag (lunch bag), mix sugar and cinnamon.

4. Carefully place dough balls into hot oil; cook about 30 seconds or until light golden brown. Using wire skimmer or metal slotted spoon, transfer doughnuts to paper bag with sugar-cinnamon. Fold top of bag over; shake until doughnuts are coated. Serve warm.

You can use a deep fryer instead of a saucepan.
Use a candy/deep fry thermometer to be sure your oil is at the correct temperature.

Would be a nice gift wrapped up in a pretty package. Pretty easy quick dessert. My kids love this kind of thing.  So easy and very cheap to make. 

 Thanks for stopping by!
