One of the many reasons I love to go to Disney Parks it to eat. Disney has some of the most amazing snacks, and one of my favorites is a Mickey Pretzel! I just think it’s more fun to eat items that are shaped like Mickey.
At the parks, Mickey Pretzels can cost up to $7! That’s just crazy! But, I’ll still buy one when I’m there because it’s part of the experience. At our house, we love Disney so much that we try to find ways to bring some Disney magic home. And this Mickey Pretzel Recipe definitely does the trick!

Making homemade pretzels can take a long time, especially when a craving comes on quickly. I usually don’t want to wait the 1-2 hours it would take to make dough, let it rise, boil, and bake. That’s why I love this recipe. All you need is a can of refrigerated pizza dough, plus a few ingredients that are probably already in your pantry!
-Refrigerated Pizza Dough
-1 1/2 Cup Water
-3 Tablespoons Baking Soda
-1 Egg, beaten
-Flour, for work surface

How to Make This Easy Mickey Pretzel Recipe
Begin by sprinkling your work surface with flour. Open your can of refrigerated pizza dough. I’ve used both name brand and store brand and they both turned out great! Unroll the dough over the flour. and use a pizza wheel to cut strips of dough, length-wise.
To create 4 or 5 large Mickey Pretzels, use one long strip of dough for the head; and one strip of dough, cut in half, for the ears. For 8-10 smaller Mickey Pretzels, cut one long strip in half. Use one half of the long strip for the head. Cut the other half of the long strip in half and use each piece as an ear.
For both large and small pretzels, begin by rolling up the larger strip of dough, either between your two hands to make a snake shape or on your counter top, so that the strip of dough is round, not flat. Shape the strip into a circle and pinch the ends together. Repeat with the smaller pieces to create ears. Pinch the ears to the head.
Whisk together the water and baking soda and use a pastry brush to brush the tops of the pretzels with the baking soda solution. Be careful not to over saturate.
Beat the egg in a small bowl and use a pastry brush to spread the beaten egg over the top of the pretzels. Sprinkle the pretzels with salt.
Bake the pretzels at 450 degrees for 6-8 minutes, depending on your oven. Make sure you keep and eye on them and remove when they are golden-brown. Six minutes was perfect for my pretzels.
Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack. Allow to cool for 1-2 minutes. Enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce! We used Salsa con Queso!
