pizza pretzels

I’ve found myself spending more time in the kitchen since moving to Saskatoon than I ever have before. It’s mostly due to the fact that our grocery budget is smaller, forcing me to (1) be creative and (2) make more from scratch. I actually prefer it this way. From-scratch food tastes much better than store-bought food. It just takes a bit longer.

Someone (Brenda I think) posted a link on Facebook to this breadstick recipe. I love trying new recipes and this one’s photos looked good. The first couple times, I simply followed the recipe and topped the breadsticks with garlic bread seasoning. We also used it a couple weeks ago for pizza and my family said it was the best pizza crust recipe they’d ever tasted.

Last week (or the week before? they all meld together) Noah said something about craving pizza pretzels. So I made some. I got another request for them tonight and now my house smells quite yummy.

I used that same breadstick recipe, but instead of making straight breadsticks, I made pretzels. I’m not going to tell you how long it took me to figure out how to twist the pretzels, but let’s just say it too me longer than it should have and Noah may or may not have had to come in and show me how to do it.

Then I added some pizza sauce, a bit of cheddar cheese, and baked them at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-12 minutes. My mother-in-law told me a while ago that she knows when something’s ready when she can smell it. I’ve been using that rule (with the aid of the timer) ever since.

They are Noah and Kaylie’s favorite lunch item. I have the (easy) recipe memorized I’ve made it so many times. Between the breadsticks, the pizza dough, and the pizza pretzels, I think this recipe is going to be around for a while.

    I was craving one of these at the theatre on Friday, but they didn’t sell them there. Actually I haven’t seen a vendor since St. John’s. I think I am going to have to whip some up tomorrow. Thanks for sharing.
