Recipe for giant soft pretzel

Last week, a friend of mine hosted a girls' wine night and everyone brought a dip to share with the group. I found this Pillsbury recipe and LOVE soft pretzels...sounded easy enough, so I gave it a try. It was DELICIOUS!! We loved it so much, that I made it again last night for the super bowl. Needless to say...it's GONE!
Mine isn't as pretty as Pillsbury's picture, but YUMMY!

  • 1 can (13.8) refrigerated classic pizza crust                             
  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • coarse salt, as desired
  • pre-made jar of queso (I bought the Target brand) 
  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Spray large cooking sheet with cooking spray. Unroll dough; reroll into long rope, stretching carefully to about 55 inches long.
  2. To make pretzel shape, form dough into U shape. Twist ends together twice. Press down dough where dough overlaps in an X. Pick ends up and fold over so they rest over bottom on U shape, pressing ends to stick. Place pretzel on prepared cookie sheet. 
  3. In small microwavable bowl, heat 1/2 cup water uncovered on High about 30 seconds or until hot. Add baking soda; stir until dissolved. Brush pretzel with soda mixture. Let stand at room temperature 5 minutes. (I'm not 100% sure what the baking soda does...but I *think* it helps the dough rise...don't quote me on that) :)
  4. Brush pretzel with beaten egg; sprinkle with salt. Transfer to cookie sheet. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until dark golden brown.
  5. Open jar of queso. Heat if desired, but room temperature was pretty tasty!
  6. Dip  your pretzel in the queso til your heart's content!
Makes 6 servings
Try it and let me know what you think!
