Easy Cheese-Stuffed Pretzel Bites


  • pizza dough room temperature
  • 4 sticks mozzarella string cheese cut into 16 pieces (you can use any cheese you like with a similar consistency)
  • pretzel (course) salt to taste
For Baking Soda Bath
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/4 cup baking soda


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line a baking pan with parchment paper and set it aside.
  3. Cut a small ball of pizza dough and flatten slightly.
  4. Place a piece of cheese in the center.
  5. Wrap the cheese completely with the dough, pinching the dough to seal the edges.
  6. Repeat with all the pieces.
  7. Make the baking soda water bath: Bring water and baking soda to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-high. Drop a few pretzel bites at a time into the water, and allow to boil for about 10-15 seconds. Use a slotted spoon to remove them, allowing any excess water to drip off before placing them on the lined baking sheet.
  8. While the pretzels are still wet, sprinkle with pretzel salt. Bake for 8-10 minutes until the pretzels turn a deep golden brown. Cool slightly before serving.
