30 minutes15 minutes


  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 pounds pizza dough, store-bought or homemade, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup baking soda
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
  3. Working on a lightly floured surface, cut dough into 4 equal strips. Roll each strip into a long rope, about 12-14 inches; cut into 1-inch pieces.
  4. Heat 6 cups water and baking soda in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; working in batches, drop dough pieces until slightly puffed and dimpled, about 30 seconds. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain well.
  5. Place dough pieces onto the prepared baking sheet, about 1/2-inch apart. Brush with egg.
  6. Place into oven and bake until golden brown, about 9-12 minutes.
  7. Working in batches, combine warm pretzel bites, butter and cinnamon-sugar mixture until evenly coated.
  8. Serve warm.
