A quick recipe for homemade pretzels with pepperoni, sausage and bacon
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 25 mins
Servings: 8 servings


  • 1 package refrigerated pizza dough
  • 4 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 6 slices pepperoni
  • 6 links pre-cooked sausage, sliced
  • 1 slice bacon
  • 1 package mini pepperoni
  • marinara sauce, for dipping


  • Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Grease a baking sheet covered with foil in cooking spray.
  • Unroll your pizza dough, and slice long-ways into 3 strips.
  • Stretch out each strip, and sprinkle 1 cup of mozzarella cheese, mini pepperoni, and sliced sausage down the center on each. Seal tightly by folding the dough over the cheese.
  • To make the pretzel-shape, form a circle with the dough, twisting the ends at the top, then bringing them down to the center. Repeat with remaining strips of dough.
  • Place your sliced pepperoni, bacon, and remaining cheese over the pretzels.
  • Bake at 400°F for 15-20 minutes until golden and puffy. Serve and enjoy!
