  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Place 8-oz ramekin (right side up), in center of 9-inch round pan. Spray outer edge of pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Remove dough from can; unroll to even thickness (about a 13x8 1/2-inch rectangle). With pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut rectangle into 6 rows by 4 rows to make 24 squares.
  • 3
    Top each dough square with sausage piece. Wrap dough completely around sausage to completely cover; firmly press edges to seal, and roll into ball. Set aside; repeat for remaining dough and sausage.
  • 4
    In 1-cup glass measuring cup, microwave water uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds or until boiling. Carefully add baking soda; stir until dissolved. Dip stuffed dough balls, one at a time, completely into water mixture. With slotted spoon, remove from water, and place around edge of pan (surrounding the ramekin). Sprinkle tops of dough balls evenly with salt. (Not all soda mixture will be used.)
  • 5
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until pretzels are dark golden brown and baked through.
  • 6
    In small microwavable bowl, add cheese and milk. Microwave uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring halfway through microwave time, until cheese is melted. Stir in mustard.
  • 7
    Transfer dip mixture to ramekin; serve with pretzels. Garnish with chives before serving.

Expert Tips

  • Rolling the stuffed dough balls will help them keep a round shape during baking. The baking soda and hot water mixture helps transform the pizza dough into a pretzel.
  • Cocktail sausages vary in size and length depending on brand. We used sausages that were approximately 1 1/2 inches long in this recipe. After cutting them in half, they were the perfect size for stuffing inside each pizza dough square.
  • Toss any remaining cocktail sausages in barbecue sauce; heat and serve with toothpicks for another party-worthy appetizer.
