Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Servings 6 servings


  • Cooking spray
  • All-purpose flour, for rolling out dough
  • 1 pound homemade or store-bought pizza dough, at room temp (See Kelly's Notes)
  • 10 cups water
  • 2/3 cup baking soda
  • 1 large egg yolk, whisked with 1 Tablespoon water
  • Everything seasoning or salt, for topping


  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper greased with cooking spray.
  • Lightly flour your work surface then cut the dough into 1-inch pieces. (They do not need to be uniform in shape but should be roughly the same size.)
  • In a large heavy-bottomed stock pot set over medium-high heat, whisk together the water and baking soda. Bring the mixture to a rolling boil.
  • Working in batches, boil the pretzel bites for 1 minute, then using a slotted spoon, transfer them into a single layer on the prepared baking sheets, spacing them at least 1 inch apart.
  • Brush the pretzel bites with the egg wash then sprinkle them with everything seasoning or salt. 
  • Bake the pretzel bites until they are dark golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving.

Kelly's Notes:

  • Room temperature pizza dough is much easier to roll out and shape than chilled pizza dough.
