dipping sauce
  1. In a mixing bowl add 1/2 cup of warm water and yeast, let sit for 15 minutes. Mix remaining water and milk together with sugar, salt and melted butter, make sure liquid is warm, set aside.
  2. After 15 minutes add flour to yeast mixture, attach dough hook and start kneading on low. At this point add milk mixture. Knead about 7 minutes, or until smooth.
  3. Remove and place dough in large greased bowl, cover with cling wrap and let rise in a warm spot for 1-1.5 hours or until doubled in size. If you have an oven with a bread proof setting, place in for 1 hour.
  4. Once dough is done rising, place on a on floured surface and cut into 8 pieces.
  5. Roll and stretch, take both ends and form a circle, twist togther into a knot and fold over top of pretzel to the opposite side to form a regular pretzel loop, see pic.
  6. Place top size up on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Let rise again 10 minutes. Tip: I made nine pretzels, but i think 8 is a better number. So you could make two of each type.
  7. Preheat oven to 425. Bring a medium size pan filled with water to a boil, add baking soda, 1 tbsp at a time, place prezels one at a time in water for a bout 30 seconds, remove and place back on cookie sheet.
  8. Brush top with egg wash, then melted butter, top with topping of choice.
  9. Add mozzerella cheese and jalapenos.
  10. Add some with sesame seeds, some with sea salt, leave some plain for cinnamon sugar that would be after baing (cinnamon sugar:mix of sugar and ground cinnamon) . Tip: you can add pepperoni, or any other topping of choice.
  11. Bake for 15 minutes, brush with more melted butter when done.
  12. To Make sauce heat a small sauce pan on medium heat. Melt butter, then add flour, whisk until combined, add milk and bring to a boil. Turn heat down, let milk slightly thicken while whisking, add cheddar, sriracha and pepper jack, melt and quickly remove from heat, add 1/2 of shredded mozzerella, ad some salt if needed.
