These tasty pretzel bites are so easy to make, you’ll never stop by the pretzel shop in the mall again!  They are so soft and perfect for dipping in your favorite sauce.  These make the perfect appetizer for any party!
 
Twisted Pretzel Bites Recipe:
Ingredients:
Nonstick cooking spray
Flour
1 (13.8 ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust
5 cups water
1/3 cup baking soda
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt
1 (10 ounce) jar queso dip, heated

Directions:
Heat oven to 450 degrees.  Spray baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.  Unroll dough on a lightly floured surface.  Cut the dough into 3 x 1/2 inch strips.  Using your hands, roll each strip into a rope about 5 inches long.  Tie each strip into a knot and place on the baking sheet.
In a large sauce pan, heat 5 cups of water and the baking soda until it boils.  Drop dough knots, 6 at a time, into the boiling water.  Let the knots cook for about 30 seconds or until dough looks slightly puffy and dimpled.  Using a slotted spoon, remove knots from the water and place on the cookie sheet about 1/2 inch apart.  Brush knots with egg and sprinkle on salt.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until well browned.  Serve pretzel bites with warm queso dip or any dip you prefer.

    I tried these tonight, but made them out of pillsbury bread stick dough. We couldn’t find the pizza dough. They came out amazing. I dredged them in butter and then sprinkled them with sea salt! So easy and so good.
    Happy New Year!

    I made these tonight with the whole grain artisan pizza dough! They were super good! I used traditional yellow mustard to dip them in. Just beware that the baking soda does give it a salty taste so keep that in mind when you’re adding the salt. I also brushed mine with butter when they first came out of the oven! Would definitely make these again! Thanks!

      It depends how much you are multiplying it by. If you were just doubling the recipe, you would probably be fine with the original measurements. Hope this helps! -The Six Sisters

    I tried these for New Years Eve; DELISH!! So excited to have “homemade” soft pretzels that don’t require actually making the dough :D Question: I’m thinking about simplifying it even further and cutting slightly shorter and wider pieces, skipping the knotting, and going for more of a nugget. Do you think this would turn out if I followed the rest of the directions as noted? Thanks for your advice!

    I am wondering about using the fresh pizza dough that you can purchase in the deli departments at grocery stores. If you were to roll that out, cut and knot would that work?

    These came out a little doughy for me. The outside cooked quicker than the inside. Maybe I made them too big? How many is this recipe supposed to make?

    I think it’d be nice to have 2 types of dip to serve with these. Does anyone have a favorite mustard dip recipe to share?

    I’m confused by the measurement for the strips of dough. Are you cutting them into 3 1/2 inch strips and then rolling them into 5 inch long ropes? Just wanted to clarify that. Thanks!

      Hi Kathyn, You have it right. Cut them into 3 1/2 inch strips. Then roll each strip into a 5 inch rope!
