they take about 4 hours of cook time but not more than 30 minutes of work time.
I cooked these for a church small group cooking contest.
Step 1: Gather Ingredients
cheese (I use pizza cheese blend)
pizza dough (I made mine in the bread machine. you can buy a lump of frozen dough, buy dough mix, buy fresh dough from a bakery
toppings / innings / stuffers (pepperoni and sausage for mine).
Step 2: Prep Ingredients
I browned the sausage and the pepperoni. pepperoni on the inside of a role won't crisp up which is how pepperoni should be (plus it gets rid of some of the grease)!
I let my dough rise a second time in a warm oven. this isn't necessary its just how I like it.
Step 3: Assemble (it's Going to Be a Ball)
Cut into squares about 4 inches.
Place ingredients on the squares and ball each one up. (you will be dipping them in water so seal them well). mine had sausage & pepperoni. I forgot to put the cheese in so I melted it on top.
I'm going to let mine sit for about 20 minutes and rise a bit before I dip them. first this let's the dough rise again, second I have 1 hour before I need them finished.
Step 4: Dip Dough
Place directly unto a sprayed cookie sheet.
Step 5: Bake
When they are nearly done melt some cheese on top. (unless you remembered to put it inside the poppers)! #embarrassed
When you remove from the oven they should be a little golden brown . I'm not going to lye and get you twisted in knots they will taste delicious (a little pretzel humor for you).
Step 6: Serve
Then share them and regret not being selfish and eating them all.
I was going to make some with chorizo and dip in salsa but didn't have time.
