|Cinnamon-Sugar Whole Wheat Pizza Dough Pretzels|
|Don't forget the drizzle of honey :)|
For the Whole Wheat Pizza Dough:
1t Active Dry Yeast
2 ½C AP Flour
1 ½C Whole Wheat Flour
½t Salt & Sugar
1/3C Olive Oil
For the Cinnamon-Sugar Pretzels:
Unsalted Butter, Melted
Honey, For Drizzling
1. For the Whole Wheat Pizza Dough: Sprinkle the yeast over the warm water. In a mixer, combine flour, whole-wheat flour, salt, and sugar. With the mixer running on low speed, drizzle in the olive oil or until just combined with the flour. Next, pour in the yeast mixture and mix until just combined. Coat a separate bowl with a light drizzle of oil and form the dough into a ball. Toss to coat the dough, and then cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for at least 1 day, but preferably 3-4 days.
2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with a Silpat.
3. Remove the pizza dough from the refrigerator and cut the dough into 8 equal portions. Roll out each piece of dough into a 24inch rope. Make a U-shape with the rope, holding the ends of the rope, cross them over each other and press onto the bottom of the U in order to form the shape of a pretzel. Place the pretzels onto the prepared baking sheet. Brush on some of the melted butter.
4. Bake the pretzels for 10-12 minutes depending on your oven until they are lightly golden brown and cooked through completely. Remove them from your oven and directly dunk them into the melted butter, making sure that they are completely covered. Next, dip them into the cinnamon sugar mixture until they are coated. Place them onto a serving plate; sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar, and then drizzle the tops with honey.
5. Enjoy immediately!
