Salted Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls (Made with Store-Bought Pizza Dough!)
If you like taking shortcuts and buying things pre-made, then you will eat this UP. Literally.
This salted caramel apple roll recipe is the ULTIMATE Fall comfort food hack. The main hack here is that we are using pre-made pizza crust instead of making our own dough. This gives us more time to focus on our sexy, divine salted caramel apple filling, which is the STAR of the show. In this recipe, I do make the caramel from scratch, but if that’s not for you I understand. If you really don’t even want to try making caramel on your own…I see you and I understand you. You could go with 1 cup of store-bought pre-made caramel sauce as the base of your filling instead of making your own. I’ll let you decide. I won’t judge you either way.
Let’s talk about the dough. I used the Pillsbury pizza crust in the can, but you can go with any other pizza dough. I can’t promise they will work exactly the same, but they should if they are classic yeast pizza crusts.
You can also totally make your own cinnamon roll dough (like the yeast-free dough I made for these brown butter sticky rolls) and just use the filling recipe here! It will taste AMAZING. No matter what you do (unless you burn your caramel or use rotten apples) these will sweep you off your feet. I can’t wait to see what you think!
Let’s get the party started.
