  • 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


  1. Boil the water with baking soda.
  2. Preheat oven to 450°F.

  3. Cut the dough in half and in half again to work with 4 smaller balls of dough.
  4. Roll them out with your hands on a lightly floured surface and form a 1" wide log shape.
  5. Cut this into 1" pieces. Roll them slightly between your hands to form balls.

  6. 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.

  7. Add sea salt to the top immediately and create a cross slit on the top of the pretzel with a sharp pairing knife.
  8. Do this with all of the pretzel bites, then bake for 15 minutes until golden brown.

  9. 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! 

  10. These are best eaten warm immediately out of the oven with the dip on the first day of baking.
