Soft pretzels and pizza combine to form a fun dipping pizza stick every child will love!
- 1 package Simply Homemade® Pretzel Creations™
- 3/4 cup very warm water (120° to 130°F)
- 1 tablespoon Mazola® Corn Oil
- 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
- 24 slices pepperoni
- Pizza sauce for dipping
Combine pretzel mix and yeast in a large mixing bowl. Stir in water and oil until thoroughly combined. (Dough may be stiff; use hands if desired).
Cover dough and let rise 25 minutes in a warm, draft-free place. (Dough will not double in size.)
Place dough on a clean, dry surface and divide into 8 equal pieces. Cover with a towel to prevent dough from drying. Roll each piece into an 8-inch rope.
Cover formed sticks with a towel.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
Combine 6 cups water with baking soda in a large deep saucepan until water boils (mixture will be foamy). Using a slotted spoon or spatula, dip one pretzel stick at a time into the boiling water allowing pretzel to slide off spoon into the water. Boil for 10 to 15 seconds, then remove the pretzel and place on baking sheet. Continue with remaining pretzels. Top each pretzel with 2 tablespoons of cheese and 3 pepperoni slices.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan and serve with pizza sauce for dipping.
