I recently realised how much I like to cook and I decided to make an online collection of recipes I've collected and tried. These are all pretty easy, and I have made many of them while watching a toddler, or at least during nap time.

So, I found this really cool idea while getting lost on cyber trails.
It's pretty simple, and reminds me of those little pizza bites, but in the shape of a pretzel.
Here's what you need:1 can refrigerated pizza dough (like biscuits, but for pizza)1 jar pizza sauce
some pepperoni, cut into stripssome shredded cheese. I used a 'mexican' shredded cheese blend; my dairy-sensitive partner in crime used Trader Joe's yogurt cheese chopped into small bits.
1 egg white
italian seasonings

roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface; cut into 4 strips lengthwise. actually, we think 3 might be better, our pretzels kinda fell apart.

spoon some pizza sauce onto the dough; add cheese and pepperoni. Make sure to leave space to roll the dough up. we had some trouble with the liquid from the pizza sauce--it likes to leak out.

roll 'em up! try and get it well sealed.

place each roll in the shape of an upside down U, grab the ends, twist once, and fold them over so they look like pretzels. This article is helpful.
whip up that egg white really well with some seasonings. I used oregano, basil, pepper, powdered onion, garlic powder, and black pepper. brush over the pretzels.
