Frequently Asked Questions

How do I make pretzels at home?

How do you make pretzels from scratch?

To start to make soft pretzels from scratch, you should mix warm water and yeast in a medium-sized bowl. Leave it to stand for a few minutes, and then stir to dissolve the yeast. Add 2½ cups of flour, sugar and salt. Stir with a strong spatula to form a floury dough.

How do you make pretzels with pizza dough?

What makes pretzel dough different?
