Pigs In A Pretzel

Serves: 4 Prep Time: Cooking Time: Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


  • 2 Tbsp sea salt
  • 1 (11-oz) roll refrigerated prepared pizza dough
  • 1 (12-oz) package beef cocktail franks
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1 egg beaten
  • ¼ cup baking soda
  • Flaky sea salt
  • White Sesame seeds
  • Hot or yellow mustard, for dipping


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add 2 tbsp sea salt.
  2. Stretch dough on a cutting board and let it sit for about 20 min. Cut each piece of the pizza dough into strips. Wrap each cocktail frank in the dough, rolling from the bottom up and wrapping about 2 times creating a ball shape.
  3. Add baking soda to boiling water and cook franks over medium heat for 30 seconds to a minute. Remove from the pot with a slotted spoon and put on a baking sheet. Lightly brush with egg mixture and lightly sprinkle with sesame seeds and flaky salt.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes. Serve with yellow mustard for dipping.


Styling Tips:

  1. Using pizza dough instead of croissant dough will give it a pretzel effect
  2. Boiling the dough in water & baking soda will help create the pretzel look
  3. Keep the rolls seam side down for a more even bake
