Additional melted salted butter and sesame seeds if desired
Prepare pretzel dough up to the point of rolling out the pretzels.
Brush your skillet with ½ tsp oil and set it in the oven while it preheats to 425 degrees F.
Roll out a circle of pretzel dough to fit your skillet*. Bake pretzel crust for 5 minutes without toppings.
Spread pretzel crust with sauce, cheese and pepperoni. Bake another 10 minutes until crust is golden and toppings are warmed through.
Brush the crust with additional melted, salted butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired
*I used a 12" cast iron skillet and the whole recipe of pretzel dough. My crust was quite thick, but it was awesome! You don't want your crust too thin, but if you're using a smaller skillet or you want it a little thinner, set some dough aside and make some individual pretzels or pretzel bites according to the original recipe. They freeze wonderfully after they're baked and can be reheated in a 400 degree oven for 5 minutes.
