Pizza Pretzel

Don’t just dip your soft pretzel is sauce! Smother it with sauce and cheese instead.

During the NFL football season, you might be looking for a new item to feature on the snack table. Why not combine two favorite snack items and make yummy pizza pretzels?

The following recipe uses Schwan’s soft pretzels but you can use your favorite soft pretzels, twists or sticks. Simply replace the pretzel cooking steps with the steps to make your own favorite soft pretzel recipe!

Not a pizza or pretzel fan? Perhaps a traveling taco dip, spicy cheese dip, or maybe some beef and cheddar sandwiches.
