Soft Pretzel Rolls Recipe

barely adapted from Bon Appetit

(Note: the original recipe called for celery seeds, which I omitted. Lots of the reviews mentioned loving the flavor they added so I figured I’d mention it in case you want to add them back.)


  • 2 3/4 cups bread flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons hot water (about 125-130 F)
  • cornmeal
  • 8 cups water
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg white, beaten until foamy (for glaze)
  • coarse salt


Add the bread flour, yeast, salt, and sugar to the bowl of your food processor. Pulse a few times to combine. With the machine running, slowly add the hot water through the feed tube (you might not need all of the water – add enough to form a smooth cohesive dough). Knead the dough by allowing the food processor to run for 1 minute – the dough should be smooth and elastic.

Spray a large bowl with nonstick cooking spray. Form the dough into a rough ball then add to the bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rise for about 35 minutes, or until doubled in volume.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Press down and knead lightly into a ball. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces. Shape each piece of dough into a ball and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Flatten the ball just slightly, then use a pair of scissors (a knife would probably work too) to cut an “x” shape into the top. Repeat with remaining pieces of dough. Cover the baking sheet with a towel and let the dough balls rise for 20 minutes, or until nearly doubled in volume.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and sprinkle generously with cornmeal. Add the water to a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Carefully add the baking soda and soda (the mixture will bubble up). Place half of the rolls in the water and cook them for 30 seconds per side. Use a spider (or slotted spoon) to transfer them to the prepared baking sheet. Repeat withe the remaining 4 rolls.

Brush the rolls with the egg white glaze then sprinkle them generously with coarse salt. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until deep golden brown. Transfer the baking sheet to a wire rack and let the rolls cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.

(Note: you can make these a few hours ahead of time – when you’re ready to serve, just reheat for about 10 minutes in a 375 F oven.)
