– Chef Genevieve

Where I got this recipe: My Aunt Diane!

Cooking Partner: My mom

The recipe in three words: soft, fabulous, delicious

What I liked about this recipe: The pretzels are very good and flavorful!

What I would change about this recipe: Next time I need to prove it a little more. And the dough is undercooked. It needs earthy seasoning as an option.

My recommendation: I recommend this as an appetizer for all events!


  • Pre-made pizza dough
  • 1/4 cup of baking soda
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Salt
  • Any dips you want (I like queso dip!)


  1. Roll out pizza dough on top of cutting board and cut into squares that are 2 inches by 2 inches. Roll the squares up into balls.
  2. Bring water to a boil in a deep pot. Add some baking soda and stir.
  3. Add dough balls and cook for about 2 minutes, or until they puff up and double in size.
  4. Remove dough balls with a slotted spoon and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. Brush the egg as a wash on top of each ball and sprinkle with salt.
  6. Bake the dough balls for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown at 415 degrees F.
  7. Allow to cool, dip in your queso or other dip, and enjoy!
