I baked them on unbleached parchment paper at 400 for about 15 minutes.

The last time I was at the airport I walked past one of those pretzel places. You know the ones that waft the smell of fresh hot baked wheat pretzels into the air? Ahhhh... I remembered how I used to get those in the mall years ago. I haven't had a hot fresh pretzel since. Until tonight. It wasn't even a conscious decision. I went food shopping this morning with my shopping partner, Ashley, and I grabbed a bag of Gillian's frozen pizza dough without really thinking. Then after dinner tonight Zoe said she was still hungry, as kids who don't like to eat much usually are. Looking into the fridge and seeing the thawed dough it just hit me - this stuff would make excellent pretzels! And it did. It rolled out so easily, and Zoe got a huge kick out of making her own pretzel. She even recalled a time when she went to a pre-school and the kids got to make pretzels, but she wasn't able to eat hers. She ate it tonight though :-) And dipped it in olive oil like her Mommy. Dipping it in olive oil, it also reminded me of the hot rolls that we used to get at Bertucci's ages ago. See for yourself, and let us know if you agree!
