Step By Step Instructions on Making Keto Soft Pretzels

Since these pretzels use a fathead dough as the base, making these pretzels only take a few steps.

Let's walk through exactly how to make these pretzels so they turn our amazing every time!

Keto Soft Pretzels

 

Step 1: Melt Your Pretzel Cheese Base

The dough for the keto soft pretzel uses a combination of melted mozzarella cheese and cream cheese.

In a medium sized microwave safe bowl, microwave the mozzarella and cream cheese for 1 minute.

Remove and stir, then microwave again for 40 seconds.  Stir again and microwave for another 30 seconds if needed or until the cheese is completely melted and there are no visible shreds.

Make sure all the cheese is completely melted. If you notice any tiny shreds that aren't melted, keep melting it.

Step 2: Let the Dough Cool Before Rolling It Out

This is going to be a super-sticky dough.

It's a lot easier to work with if you let it cool off completely after melting the mozzarella. It usually takes about 10 minutes to cool down enough to work with.

Step 3: Roll out the Dough and Make the Perfect Soft Pretzel Shape

There's an art to creating the perfect soft pretzel shape. We have some pictures to help you see the entire process.

But first, tape down your parchment paper. You'll be rolling out very sticky dough. Taping down the paper will save you a lot of frustration.

Roll Out the Dough Into a U Shape

First, make a long snake out of your dough. Then, form the letter U.

Lay the Left Leg On Top of the Right One

Next, pick up the left “leg” of the U, and put it on top of the right one. It should look like the photo below.

Twist the “Legs” Once

Pick up the legs and twist them once, putting the left one underneath the right one. It should look like the photo below.

Pull the Legs Down and Form a Pretzel Shape

Now you are ready to make it look like a pretzel. Just take those twisted “legs” and pull them down towards you and lay them on the middle of the pretzel.

See! Aren't they pretty?

Step 4: Bake In The Oven

Sprinkle the pretzels with coarse salt and add these to the oven.

Bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.

How to Make Different-Sized Pretzels

Here are the sizes and shapes for other pretzels.

  • For 12 small pretzels, roll the dough out in 14-inch long ropes.
  • For 9 medium pretzels, roll the dough out into 18-inch long ropes.
  • For 4 large pretzels, roll the dough out into 24-inch long ropes.

Then just follow the same method as detailed above to create your pretzel shapes.

Other Pretzel Tips

  • Using the yeast in this recipe is important! It really gives it that authentic soft pretzel taste and texture. Make sure to let the yeast sit for 10 minutes.
  • Also, knead the dough well before shaping in into the pretzels.

If you have it, sprinkle on some Steak Seasoning for some extra flavor.

Put them back in the over for 2-3 minutes just until the cheese is melted.

Enjoy!
