Air Fryer Pretzel Bites

For a great-tasting snack in minutes you have to try my Air Fryer Pretzel Bites, crispy on the outside with the perfect chewy texture in the center that you expect from a pretzel.

– Pizza dough – Water – Baking soda – Egg – Pretzel salt optional


Cut or break the pizza dough into small bite-sized pieces, about 1 inch thick. Roll the pieces into small cylinders. Set aside.

Step 1

In a large pot, bring 8 cups of water to a boil. Slowly add the baking soda and stir until dissolved.

Step 2

Lower the dough balls into the boiling water. Allow them to cook for 20-30 seconds before removing them with the slotted spoon.

Step 3

Brush each dough ball in the egg wash, and coat it evenly. Sprinkle with salt if desired.

Step 4

Place the dough balls in a single layer in the preheated air fryer basket. Air fry for 6-8 minutes or until the pretzel bites are golden brown and cooked.

Step 5

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce, such as mustard or cheese sauce.
