Hold press. This is your new favourite snack. Crispy, chewy pretzels stuffed with oozy mozzarella and sun-dried tomatoes, and covered in fragrant zaatar. I use shop bought pizza dough, which you just roll out and stuff. It’s super easy. My Cheesy Zaatar Pretzels are great as is, but I love to dunk mine into something spicy, like muhammara paste or verdant zhoug.
- Preheat the oven to 180 fan. Place the dough onto a floured surface and roll out into two 40cm long by 15cm wide rectangle. By no means does this need to be perfect.
- Cut the both pieces of dough into two strips lengthways. Place a line of mozzarella, lengthways, down the middle of each strip and then nestle the sun-dried tomatoes in between the cheese. Roll up into a long cigar shape and fold it around into a pretzel. Repeat with the rest.
- Place the pretzels onto lined baking sheets and brush the tops with olive oil. Sprinkle over the zaatar and plenty of salt and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Serve immediately.
