Pizza Pretzels

Recipe by Shar-on

These pretzels are nice to take for lunches and good snacks. My sister gave this recipe to me and I have really enjoyed making them, but also eating them!

I halved the recipe otherwise you end up with a LOT of pretzels! Good taste, use olive oil not vegetable oil and use pizza sauce instead of spaghetti sauce. Sprinkle on cheese only 1/2 way through baking so it doesn't burn.
