Very quick and easy pretzel bites with two dipping sauces. This came together kind of by accident when the kids wanted a snack after school. We have made homemade pretzels before and I have to admit that was a little time consuming. The trick with this shortcut is the baking soda water bath. I love Nutella®. Enjoy!

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  • Unroll pizza crust and cut into 2-inch squares. Roll each square into a ball and place on a cookie sheet.

  • Bring 3 quarts of water to a boil. Stir in baking soda until dissolved. Add pizza balls to the boiling water in batches. Cook until puffed up and floating, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle salt on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.

  • Mix Neufchatel cheese, chocolate-hazelnut spread, and milk together to make chocolate dipping sauce. Add more milk for a thinner dip. Mix mustard and honey together in a separate bowl. Serve warm pretzel bites with dipping sauces.

Cook's Notes:

The dough can sit out for up to an hour before boiling.
