We love to make homemade pizza in our house, and this was a super fun recipe to experiment with, inspired by one of my all-time favorite Mac n Cheese recipes – Jalapeño Bacon Mac n Cheese.
I have never tried to make a pretzel crust pizza at home before, but it was definitely something I wanted to give a try. I’m so glad I did, because it actually wasn’t that hard to do, and it make a big difference in terms of flavor.
You can top Pretzel Pizza Crust with anything you like, the method for cooking the crust will be exactly the same. So, if you prefer pepperoni or mushrooms and olives, or even something completely different and unique, feel free to give those toppings a try as well.
I kept these pizzas mini sized for a couple reasons – I thought the smaller size was much easier to work with when it came to the pretzel part of the preparation and because I thought they’d make a great appetizer or snack for a party at this size.
