Servings: 32 pretzel knots depending on size
- raw pizza dough ball
- 1/2 cup of baking soda
- 8 cups of water
- 1 egg plus 1 tbsp of water mixed together for egg wash
Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees then divide your pizza dough into 4 equal parts and roll each part into 1/2 inch thick pieces and so that it resembles a rounded rectangle
Cut into strips,4-5 long strips and then cut those strips in half (see my picture)
Now tie into knot carefully making sure you remember this is dough not shoelaces so you don't want to pull to hard on the dough :)
Now set aside
Put 8 cups water in pot with 1/2 cup baking soda and then bring to boil.
Now place 4-5 knots at a time into boiling water for 30 seconds. Using a slotted spoon take them out of the water and place on a greased baking sheet (or use a silpat).
The knots should be dimpled and puffy.
Once all knots are out of water and on baking sheet, brush each knot with egg wash and sprinkle with coarse sea salt , bake 8-10 min or until golden brown
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce: cheese, mustard, nutella, chocolate!
