Pizza Dough Pretzels or Bavarian Bagels?

Posted on


happy cooking.





Ingredients for 6 homemade soft pretzels:


1 pound prepared pizza dough, plus all-purpose flour as needed, divided into six balls


6 cups water


1/3 cup baking soda


coarse salt



– Bake at 400 F. for about 20 minutes, or until beautifully browned, and stretch marks have formed. Exact times will depend the specific size and shape of your pretzel.



– Tip:  if you’re making rings, be sure to stretch them out, so your pretzels are not too thick. You don’t want them any fatter than I made, otherwise they become too bready. Larger, thinner dough rings we’ll give you a chewier pretzel, closer to the ones you get at the mall.
