Vegetable oil, for frying

1 pound of prepared pizza dough

¾ cup sugar

1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon




Pour vegetable oil into a large frying pan to reach a depth of 2 inches.  Heat the oil over medium heat until a deep fry thermometer registers 375 degree F.


Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to ½ - inch thickness.  Using a floured 2 inch cookie cutter, cut out doughnut rounds, using a floured 1-inch cookie cutter, cut a hole in the center of each doughnut.  Gather the dough scraps and re-roll to cut out more doughnuts.


Whish the cinnamon and sugar in a medium bowl to blend.  Set the cinnamon-sugar aside.


When the oil is hot, working in batches, fry the doughnuts until they puff but are still pale, about 45 seconds per side.  Using a slotted spoon, transfer the doughnuts to paper towels to drain.  Cool slightly.  While the other doughnuts are still warm, add to the bowl of cinnamon-sugar and generously coat each 2 times with the cinnamon-sugar.  Serve warm.
