This is one of the easiest recipes that I've found so far - considering how expensive one pretzel cost.

2 teaspoons of dried yeast
1 tablespoons of sugar
teaspoon salt
1 cups (375ml) warm water
4 cups (590g) plain flour
2 cups (500ml) warm water
1 tablespoons bicarb soda
30g butter, melted
2 tablespoons coarse salt

1 tablespoon of cinnamon powder to 1 tablespoon of sugar
tablespoon of garlic powder to 1 tablespoon of salt
A handful of shredded mozzarella cheese

Preparation: 1 hour 30 minutes
Cook: 10 -15 minutes

1. Dissolve the yeast, sugar and salt in 1 cups of warm water, into a large mixing bowl.

2. Stir in flour, and knead dough on a floured surface until smooth and elastic, for about 5 minutes.

3. Place in a greased bowl, and turn to coat the surface. Cover with cling wrap, and let it rise for 1 hour.

4. In a pan, combine 2 cups warm water and bicarb soda.

5. After the dough has risen, cut into 12 pieces. Roll each piece into a 30cm rope. Twist into a pretzel shape, and dip into the bicarb soda solution.

6. Place on baking paper covered baking trays, and let the pretzels rise for 15 to 20 minutes.

7. Preheat the oven to 200 degree Celsius while waiting for the pretzels to rise.

8. Bake at 200 degree Celsius for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter, and sprinkle with coarse salt, garlic salt or cinnamon sugar. Enjoy!
