Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 2 dozen
  • 1 can store-bought pizza dough
  • ¼ cup baking soda
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
For Bourbon Glaze
  • Glaze Ingredients
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons bourbon
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  2. Roll out pizza dough on a floured surface.
  3. Cut dough into 2" by 4" rectangles and tie in a simple knot.
  4. Boil 2 quarts of water in a deep pot or pan. Add baking soda to boiling water, and stir to combine.
  5. Gently add the knots to the boiling water and cook for 2 minutes, or until they puff up.
  6. Remove dough balls with a slotted spoon, and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  7. Brush the egg wash on top of each dough ball.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. While the knots are baking, make the glaze. Whisk the sugar and bourbon until smooth. The glaze should be thick but pourable. Add more bourbon (or milk) or sugar as needed until you get the right consistency.
  10. Allow to cool.
  11. Whisk the cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl.
  12. Dip each pretzel bite in the melted butter, then roll in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  13. Finish off pretzel bites with a generous drizzle of the bourbon glaze. Serve immediately.
