Pepperoni Pizza Pretzels

Pepperoni Pizza Pretzels – Everything you love about pizza and pretzels combined into one tasty snack! The pretzels are stuffed with pepperoni and cheese then baked to golden perfection!

I’m on a pretzel kick right now! Between the Cinnamon Roll Pretzels and now these Pepperoni Pizza Pretzels, I have been basically living on pseudo-pretzels.  This time though, these were savory and delicious! I stuffed them with italian blend cheese and pepperoni before twisting them into their iconic shape and smothering them with a mix of melted butter, italian seasoning, and minced garlic.  Oh, and did I mention that dipping them in pizza sauce makes the whole experience even better!


I made these before my American Literature class one day and really just ended up sitting there the whole time thinking about them, excited to dig in when I got home.  Unfortunately, I managed not to get an sides to go with them so I had to make do with boxed couscous but hey, it was still a great meal.

Pepperoni Pizza Pretzels

Ingredients

  • 1 can of pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup italian shredded cheese
  • 1/2 cup pepperonis (mini pepperonis would work best but I was unable to find them so I sliced normal sized pepperonis into 8 pieces)
  • 2 tbsp butter (melted)
  • 1/2 tsp italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Open and unroll pizza dough before slicing into 6 pieces along the shorter side of the rectangular pizza dough.
  3. Sprinkle italian cheese and pepperonis evenly across the slices of pizza dough.
  4. Fold each pizza dough slice over horizontally so that the edges meet and pinch the dough in along where they meet so that the cheese and pepperoni are inside.
  5. Twist into the shape of a pretzel.  Cross the dough and twist the dough around where it crosses.  Place the ends near the middle of the dough with a bit of space inbetween.
  6. In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, italian seasoning, and minced garlic.  Drizzle on top of the pretzels.
  7. Sprinkle parmesan on top of pretzels.
  8. Place pretzels onto a cookie sheet with parchment paper as lining.
  9. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
  10. Pull out the pretzels and let cool before eating!
