Ingredients:
1 lb. pizza dough (enough for one large pizza)
2 tbsp. butter, melted and divided
1/3 c. pecans
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
flour, for rolling out the pizza dough

Chop pecans into small pieces. Roll out pizza dough onto a floured surface about the size of a large pizza. Spread 1 tablespoon of butter over the dough. Sprinkle the pecans, sugar and cinnamon over the dough such that everywhere is covered. Cut into rows and columns of approximately 3 inches, so that you are left with 3-inch squares. Create stacks of about 4-6 of these squares, one on top of another. Line a loaf pan with a sheet of buttered parchment paper. The paper should go up and over the sides of the pan. Carefully lay each stack of dough squares on its side into the pan. The stacks will likely somewhat come apart, and there should be some small gaps between sections of dough. Bake for 30 minutes at 350. pour the remaining butter over the bread. Bake for another 20 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.
