Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet or line with foil.

  • Stir together water and baking soda in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil.

  • Meanwhile, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 10x12-inch rectangle. Cut dough into twelve 1-inch strips. Wrap each strip tightly around a bratwurst in a spiral, pinching edges to seal and leaving about 1/2 inch of bratwurst peeking out of each end.

  • Add 3 wrapped bratwurst at a time to the boiling water. Boil for about 30 seconds. Transfer bratwurst to the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt. Repeat with remaining wrapped bratwurst.

  • Bake bratwursts until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Cut each bratwurst crosswise into thirds. Serve with mustard.

Cook's Note:

This recipe will work with 14 to 16 ounces pizza dough.

We made these tonight for the Super Bowl. They tasted good but the instructions failed to say whether or not to use cooked or uncooked brats before they are baked. We used uncooked and they took probably a extra 25 minutes to cook. When I first took them out of the oven at 12 minutes not all of the dough looked cooked enough so we put them back in. When we took them out the second time I cut them into thirds but the brats still weren't done so I threw them back in all cut for 5 more minutes and they were finally done. Please edit the recipe to state how the brats should be when preparing.. uncooked or cooked. I used Johnsonville brats. Other than the cooking time adjustments they were good. Read More
