I made twice as much because my family usually eats twice as much as we should, but I had to cook it way longer than expected because the pizza dough was still doughy. But when it was done it tasted great! Love this dish.
My husband and I made these for New Years Eve. Oh my stars, they were unbelievable! I am not a cook and watched the video consistently until I felt I could try it. The flavor was amazing. The pretzel dough turned out amazing. I am giving this recipe five stars.
These are awesome! I do not own a bread machine, nor do I wish to 😉 I used a mixer and let the dough rise on its own. Also I only did 6 dogs, so I made pretzels with the extra dough- cooked them right beside the dogs!! For those who do not have a bread machine this is how I did it… I combined the beer (or use equal amount of warm water in place of the beer), sugar, salt & yeast. Stir and allow it to sit for 4-5 minutes. Once the mixture has risen slightly, put flour in the bowl of the mixer, add the yeast slurry, melted butter & using the dough attachment/hook kneed on low speed just until the dough comes together. Increase the speed to medium and kneed until dough is smooth and pulls away from the sides of the bowl (about 4-5 minutes). Remove the dough from the bowl, spray it with non stick spray or rub with oil, then return the dough back into the bowl and cover with a tea towel. Let rise for 1 hour in a draft free, warm place, or until doubled in size. Now you are ready to roll out the dough and cut into strips.
The dough was great to work with! I was a little intimidated, but it wasn’t so bad! I made the dough and wrapped the dogs a day in advance, then baked them the next day. Will definitely make these again!!
