  • 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/2 cup beer
  • 1 lb pizza dough
  • 5 cups water
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • kosher or coarse salt to taste


  1. Take small handfuls of the pizza dough, roll into balls, then flatten them out.

  2. Mix the cheddar cheese with the corn starch until evenly distributed.

  3. In a medium saucepan, bring ½ cup of beer to a simmer.

  4. Add the cheese and corn starch mixture and stir until it begins to thicken. Remove from heat.

  5. Preheat the oven to 425°F.

  6. Place a small spoonful of the beer and cheese mixture into the center of the flattened dough.

  7. Pick up the top and bottom edges and bring them up and together. Do the same with the left and right edges. Continue bringing in the rest of the edges of the dough until it all meets in the center until there are no more gaps for the cheese to leak out of.

  8. In a medium pot, boil five cups of water. Add the baking soda to the water and immediately drop in your pretzel bites. Boil for 20-30 seconds,

  9. Take out and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
