- 1 package Pillsbury pizza dough
- 8 hot dogs
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- Coarse salt
- Ketchup or mustard for serving
Preheat oven to 375°F. Roll out Pillsbury dough on a lightly floured surface into a long rectangle at least 14 inches long and 8-10 inches wide. Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into five long strips.
Transfer the strips to a baking sheet that has been lightly oiled. Fold back every other strip. Place a hot dog on the flat strips, then place the folded strips back over the hot dog, starting a weave pattern. Next, fold back the other strips over the hot dog and place a second hot dog down. Continue to weave all eight dogs into the bread in this fashion.
When all the hot dogs are woven into the dough, trim off any extra dough from the edges and try to space out the dough evenly over each dog. Then brush with melted butter and sprinkle with coarse salt to give the bread a pretzel taste.
Bake the weave at 375°F for 25 minutes until it's perfectly browned.
Let the weave cool for 5 minutes and then chop it into eight squares. Serve with ketchup and/or mustard.
