This is the easiest pizza dough pretzel bites recipe ever! Just over 30 minutes and 6 ingredients is all it takes to get these salty little squares baked up fresh, warm, and ready to eat!
Don’t fill the pot of water too full. You want it at least 3-4 inches below the rim of the pot. If you fill it too full, after you add the baking soda it will overflow and make a big mess.
Gently peel the pretzel bites from the paper towel lined baking sheet. The pretzel bites will want to stick to the paper towel after you remove them from the boiling water. The paper towel is important because it will soak up the excess water from the pretzel bites. If you peel very gently, the pretzel bites will release easily. Slow and gentle is key here!
Check the pretzel bites after about 13-14 minutes in the oven and pull them as soon as they’ve reached your desired level of dark brown deliciousness. I like a nice deep dark brown color on my soft pretzels, but some prefer a sun kissed light brown. If you want to pull them before they get dark brown, I’d recommend tasting one of them just to make sure that they are cooked all the way through in the middle.
