This Cinnamon Sugar Monkey Bread is like the simplest cinnamon roll you’ve ever made, but easier because this pull-apart pastry comes together with only 4 ingredients. It can be a fun way for the little monkeys in your life to help out in the kitchen–kids will love dipping dough squares into melted butter and coating them in cinnamon sugar almost as much as they’ll love pulling apart and tasting this ooey gooey, sticky-sweet treat. Warm dough can get unmanageably sticky, so handling is easiest when it’s kept refrigerated until just before using, and a pizza cutter works great for cutting the squares.

  • 16 oz pizza dough
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup (half a stick) unsalted butter, melted


1) Grease a Suvie pan. Pat pizza dough into an 8″ x 4″ rectangle and cut into 1” squares.

2) In a medium bowl, mix together brown sugar and cinnamon. Working in batches to prevent dough squares from sticking together, roll dough squares in cinnamon sugar and arrange evenly in prepared Suvie pan.

3) Add melted butter to remaining cinnamon sugar left in the bowl and mix to combine. Pour mixture over top of dough and insert pan into your Suvie. Input settings, and cook now or schedule.

4) Remove pan from Suvie and allow to cool in pan for 3 minutes. Carefully invert the pan onto a serving plate, using a butter knife or offset spatula to loosen the bread from the sides of the pan if necessary. Serve warm.

Note: If you would like to make this recipe in Suvie 1.0, insert pan into the top zones of Suvie, fill reservoir, and set to Slow Cook on High for 2 hours.
