Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Drain the lil' smokies and set them on a paper towel to dry.
Roll out the pizza dough into a 12-inch circle. Use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into long 1/2 inch thick strips.
Place one strip of dough on the baking sheet. Press one lil' smokie on the end of the dough strip and set it in the middle of the sheet. Press it down. Wrap the dough over the lil' smokie and back down to the baking sheet, creating a loop around the mini sausage.
Set another sausage on top of the dough strip, right next to the first lil' smokie. Press down. Wrap the dough strip over the sausage and back down on the baking sheet. *The pressing down ensures the dough is thin on the bottom so it will fully bake.
Repeat the process of adding a sausage, pressing it down on the dough strip, then wrap the dough over the top. As you work, move the loops around the initial lil' smokie creating a spiral pattern.
When you come to the end of one strip of dough. Press the end of a new strip on top of it, creating one long connected piece of dough. Once all the dough strips are gone, use your hands to make sure your crazy bread is in the shape of a circle.
Brush 3 tablespoons butter over the dough and sprinkle it with 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese. Place on the bottom rack of the oven for 35+ minutes.
Bake until the center is puffed and the dough on the bottom is baked through. If the top starts to get dark, set a piece of foil loosely over the top.
Once baked, brush the top with another coating of melted butter. Then sprinkle again with 1/4 cup parmesan cheese.
Serve warm with marinara sauce for dipping. You can pull out several little sausage rolls in the middle, creating a ring, to make room of a small cup of marinara.
This recipe can be prepared in advance and frozen until ready to bake.
