vegan pretzel bites with spicy maple mustard dip
Here’s a classic, salty and savory pretzel bite with a tangy dip! I guarantee this will be a hit at your next cocktail party.
- 1 pre-made ball of pizza dough
- 5 C water
- 2 tbsp baking soda
- 1 to 2 tbsp coarse sea salt
spicy maple mustard dip
- 2 tbsp grainy mustard
- 1 tbsp prepared yellow mustard
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tsp hot sauce
- Boil the water with baking soda.
Preheat oven to 450°F.
- Cut the dough in half and in half again to work with 4 smaller balls of dough.
- Roll them out with your hands on a lightly floured surface and form a 1″ wide log shape.
Cut this into 1″ pieces. Roll them slightly between your hands to form balls.
Once the water is at a rolling boil, place 10 to 12 balls in the water at a time. After 20 to 30 seconds, they will float to the surface. Remove them with a slotted spoon and place onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Add sea salt to the top immediately and create a cross slit on the top of the pretzel with a sharp pairing knife.
Do this with all of the pretzel bites, then bake for 15 minutes until golden brown.
Prepare the mustard dip by combining all the ingredients together in a small dish. This can be pre-made and refrigerated until you want to eat pretzels!
These are best eaten warm immediately out of the oven with the dip on the first day of baking.
