1 ball HT whole wheat pizza dough
4 tbsp butter

Cinnamon Sugar - 1 tbsp cinnamon & 1/4 cup sugar
Salt - dash
Oil - a splash (tiny, I used grapeseed oil)

Butter - 1 tbsp melted
Powdered sugar - 1 cup (add more to reach desired consistency)
Vanilla - 1 tsp
Milk - splash

Oven at 375°
Melt butter in 9x13 pan in oven.
Take pan out of oven and stretch dough to fit pan then flip dough so both sides are covered in butter. 
Set in hot oven for 2-3 minutes then let rise in microwave while you make cinnamon sugar mix. 

Take cinnamon sugar/butter/oil/salt mixture (resembles wet sand) and spread over dough. Pre-cut the dough into strips in the pan. Cut oven down to 350° bake for 10-12 minutes.

Melt 1 tbsp butter, mix in vanilla, powdered sugar and milk. Drizzle over warm cinnamon sticks.
