Pizza Dough Pretzel Bites
- 1 (16 oz.) wheat pizza dough from our bakery
- 9 cups water
- ½ cup baking soda
- 1 egg, beaten
- Sea salt, for sprinkling
- ¼ cup honey
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- ¼ cup Dijon mustard
- 1 Tbsp. white distilled vinegar
- ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
Directions1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside. 1. Roll the dough into long ropes. Cut the rope into 1-1 ½-inch pieces to make bites. 1. Bring the water and baking soda to a boil in a large pot. Drop 8-10 pretzel bites into water and let sit for 20 seconds (or until they float). Remove with a spatula and place onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them evenly so that they do not touch. 1. Brush beaten egg over each pretzel bite. Sprinkle with sea salt. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. 1. While pretzels are baking, in a small bowl, whisk together honey, mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar and cayenne pepper until smooth. Set aside. 1. Remove from oven and serve with honey mustard. Best served warm.
Allow pizza dough to sit uncovered at room temperature for one hour in order to rise. If your water does not come to a boil after several minutes, don’t fret! The baking soda actually increases the boiling point of the water. So, if it’s been several minutes, feel free to proceed by placing the pretzel bites into the water until they float.
