Prep Time



Total Time






cooked bratwurst (from 14-oz package), finely chopped
cup sauerkraut, squeezed dry, chopped
can (13.8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated classic pizza crust
cup baking soda
tablespoon water
teaspoon caraway seed
Mustard, as desired
  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
  2. In small bowl, mix bratwurst and sauerkraut; set aside. Unroll dough onto lightly floured surface; roll into 14x12-inch rectangle. Using pizza cutter, cut dough lengthwise into 4 strips.
  3. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the bratwurst mixture onto long edge of each dough strip. Stretch dough over bratwurst filling; brush edges with water, and pinch to seal. Pick up ends of filled dough and stretch to make 24-inch rope.
  4. To make pretzel shape, form each rope into U shape. Twist ends twice. Press down where dough overlaps in an "X" to hold shape. Pick up ends and fold over so they rest over bottom of U shape.
  5. In medium microwavable bowl, microwave 2 cups water uncovered on High about 2 minutes or until hot. Add baking soda; stir until dissolved. Dip each pretzel, 1 at a time, into water mixture. Immediately remove from water with large pancake turner; let stand about 5 minutes. In small bowl, beat egg and 1 tablespoon water with whisk; brush pretzels with egg mixture.
  6. Place pretzels on cookie sheet; sprinkle with caraway seed. Bake 11 to 15 minutes or until tops of pretzels are dark golden brown. Serve with mustard.
