Pigs in a Pretzel Blanket


  • 1 package Fischer's Wieners
  • 1 lb pizza dough, formed into 1 ball
  • 5 cups water
  • ¼ cup baking soda
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • sea salt, to taste


  1. Bring pizza dough to room temperature.
  2. Cut the dough into strips and stretch/roll out.
  3. Roll up hot dogs in pizza dough so the dough wraps around twice—leaving the ends sticking out and cutting off any excess.
  4. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet until ready to boil.
  5. Bring water to a light boil. Add in baking soda.
  6. Once dissolved, boil wrapped hot dogs in water mixture for 20-30 seconds each (working in small batches).
  7. Remove and place back on baking tray. Brush each lightly with beaten egg and sprinkle with sea salt.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven at 425˚F  for 15-20 minutes until the dough is nicely browned.
  9. Enjoy!
