  • STEP 12.Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Cooking Tips

  • Make sure the water is warm, but not too hot, as it can kill the yeast.
  • If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour. If it's too dry, add a little more water.
  • Feel free to customize the filling by adding other pizza toppings like mushrooms, bell peppers, or olives.
  • For a spicier version, use spicy pepperoni or add some crushed red pepper flakes to the dough.
  • These pretzels are best enjoyed fresh out of the oven when the cheese is still gooey and melty.

Storage and Serving

  • Serve the Pepperoni Pizza Pretzels warm as a snack or appetizer.
  • They can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • To reheat, place the pretzels in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 5 minutes, or until warmed through.
  • Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.
