Author: Holly Gray


  • 1 - .25oz. pkg active dry yeast
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • 1 1/8 tsp. sea salt
  • 3 c warm water divided
  • 3 c all-purpose flour
  • 1 c bread flour
  • 2 c warm water
  • 2 T baking soda
  • 2 T butter melted
  • 2 T sea salt


  • Begin by adding yeast, brown sugar, and salt to a large mixing bowl. Pour in the warm water and stir gently to dissolve the yeast.
  • Stir in flour 1 cup at a time until fully incorporated and a dough is formed.
  • Knead the dough until the consistency is smooth, around 8-10 minutes.
  • Lightly oil a medium size bowl. Add dough, turning to coat. Cover the bowl and allow dough to rise, undisturbed, for 1 hour.
  • Separate dough into 12 pieces. Roll each piece into a 3' rope and twist into a pretzel shape.
  • Combine the remaining 2 cups of warm water and baking soda in an 8" x 8" inch dish and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Dip each pretzel into the baking soda water and set on a parchment covered baking sheet. Allow dough to rise again, 15 - 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 450°
  • Bake for 8 - 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Brush top with melted butter, and sprinkle with desired toppings. Serve warm.
