1/2 cup pizza sauce

1 teaspoon dried oregano

4 slices provolone cheese

4 slices mozzarella cheese

Directions

1. Allow bread dough to rise until doubled in size. Punch down and divide into four pieces. Roll each piece into a 20-inch rope.

 2. Line two baking sheets with nonstick foil. Coil dough ropes into four pretzels, two on each sheet. Let dough rise for about an hour.

3. Gently spoon pizza sauce over the pretzels and sprinkle each with oregano and, if desired, red pepper flakes.

4. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until pretzels are golden.

5. Immediately top each pretzel with a slice of provolone and a slice of mozzarella. Let stand until cheese melts over pretzels. Serve.
