WARNING: I ate ALL 8 Soft Pretzels by myself in ONE DAY!
Dont say I didnt warn you. These are so crazy delicious, you better make them and then leave your house immediately to find other people to eat them with because if left alone with these, you WILL eat them all.
I was going to try and make a soft pretzel recipe from scratch. You know -dough making, yeast rising, flouring the countertop, kneading for 15 minutes – scratch. But then I remembered I had pizza dough in the freezer so… DUH.
It was Vegan Whole Wheat Pizza dough so these are healthy and I’m going with that. Of course you could use any pizza dough you want. Trader Joe’s has some fun and inexpensive options.
I also never said I was a master pretzel twister, hence the uneven soft pretzels but honestly that was part of the fun. A unique little shape for everyone. I got about 8 mini soft pretzels out of one pizza dough. You could definitely take this recipe and make pretzel bites or larger soft pretzels or twists or balls or buns or whatever. Just make them, I know you’ll love them.
Oh and P.S. I finally used my Nutiva Buttery Flavored Coconut Oil and I am obsessed. Tastes EXACTLY like butter. You gotta try it if you haven’t yet. I couldn’t stop thinking about movie theatre popcorn. Yes, I was stuffing soft pretzels in my face and still thinking about food. Don’t judge me. Actually, judge me. I deserve it.
Let’s get cooking! You’ll need about 20 minutes start to finish!
