with Vermont Cheddar Dipping Sauce
These pretzel bites are the perfect snack for any event!
1 pkg. Family Size Pizza Crust
1/2 cup baking soda
Egg wash (1 egg and 2 Tbsp. water, beaten)
Pretzel salt (optional)
1 cup heavy cream
Kosher salt to taste
1 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
Cayenne pepper (optional)
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Unroll refrigerated Family Size Pizza Crust onto lightly floured counter. Cut dough into thirds and squeeze each third into a log and then roll out into a rope about 1-in. in thickness. Cut rope into equal size pieces and place on parchment lined baking sheet (using the parchment from the dough package). Repeat with remaining two pieces.
Mix baking soda with 4 cups of water and bring to a boil, dissolving baking soda. With a batch of 6-8 at a time, drop the dough pieces into the water and boil for 20 seconds. Remove with a strainer and place pretzel bites back on baking sheet. Repeat with all remaining dough pieces.
Place the enclosed parchment paper on a baking sheet and spread out the dough pieces. Brush all pieces with egg wash and top with pretzel salt (salt optional).
Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes until nicely brown in color.
