Pepperoni & Cheese Soft Pretzels

When I lived in Philadelphia I would go almost every day to a corner vendor for a Philly soft pretzel for lunch. I’m sure it wasn’t the best thing to do, but it certainly fit my college budget! I sometimes get the hankering for a good homemade soft pretzel. Today I made them a little different. I added pepperoni and cheese!!! Serve with some cheese dip and a little marinara and you have pizza in a pretzel. You can also make little bite size pieces which would be great for your upcoming Super Bowl Party!! 

Homemade Pretzels
4 1/2 cups all purpose flour
4 tbs melted butter
1 1/2 cups tepid water/100-110 °F
1 packet dry yeast
1 Tbs sugar
2 tsp salt
1 egg beaten
1 cup chopped up pepperoni
1/2 cup grated Pecorino cheese

How To Make Soft Pretzel Recipe

Once you follow the recipe on the link above and you get to the point where you’ve added the yeast slurry, blend for about a minute. Now add the chopped pepperoni and the grated Pecorino cheese. At this point, finish the pretzels according to the original recipe.

One note; after you roll them, if you are making them for a crowd, just cut them into bite size pieces and follow the directions the same way to finish.

Now you can enjoy your pizza in a pretzel form!!! Delicious!!!

    1. Yes, and by boiling them and baking them with an egg wash, you don’t use the lye that most pretzels are dredged in before baking.


    1. I made a Parmesan cheese sauce with garlic that went really well with them. Yummy… I am making these again for super bowl in little bite sized pieces!!
