Pretzel pizza
We used to buy this from a national pizza chain, then they stopped making it. Oh and of course this was the only pizza I could get the kids to eat (they are weird they do not care for pizza ) Well we needed our Pretzel Pizza fix so I got busy experimenting until I found what we think is perfect. The kids love it!
Pretzel Pizza
Recipe type: Main Dish
  • •1 cup warm water (105°F to 115°F)
  • •1 (1/4-ounce) envelope active dry yeast
  • •Vegetable oil
  • •2¾ cups all purpose
  • •1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • •1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 can or jar of your favorite Nacho Cheese Sauce
  • 1 pkg sliced Pepperoni
  • 1 tablespoon Baking Soda
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ stick melted butter
  1. Instructions
  2. Place the warm water in the bowl of a stand mixer and sprinkle the yeast on top. Set aside to rest until the mixture bubbles, about 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, coat a large mixing bowl with a thin layer of vegetable oil and set aside
  4. Place the flour, sugar, and measured salt in a large bowl and whisk briefly to break up any lumps and combine. Once the yeast is ready, fit the bowl on the mixer, attach a dough hook,and dump in the flour mixture.
  5. Mix on the lowest setting until the dough comes together, then increase to medium speed and mix until the dough is elastic and smooth, about 8 minutes.
  6. Form the dough into a ball, place in the oiled mixing bowl, and turn the dough to coat in oil. Cover with a clean, damp dish towel and let rest in a warm place until the dough doubles in size, about 30 to 35 minutes..
  7. Once the dough has risen, punch it down and knead it on a floured, dry surface just until it becomes smooth and springs back when poked, about 1 minute.
  8. Lightly oil a pizza pan.
  9. On a floured surface roll the dough into a large circle. Transfer it to the pizza pan. I always find I need to use my hands and shape the dough once I have it on the pan. Make sure to leave an edge around the crust.. Let rest for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile in a small dish add the baking soda and water stir until baking soda is dissolved. Using a pasty brush, brush the edges of the pizza with the baking soda mixture and lightly sprinkling with kosher salt. Next spread as much or as little of the Nacho Cheese sauce on the crust that you like I usually use a little less than I would pizza sauce since the cheese sauce is thick. Top with pepperoni and bake at 475 for about 10 minutes or until edge of crust is nicely brown Remove from oven and using a pastry brush, brush melted butter all around edge of crust. Enjoy
