Makes about 25 to 30

  • 1 (13.8-ounce can) pizza dough
  • 1 (16-ounce) package cocktail sausages
  • 3 Tbsp. salt
  • 1/2 stick butter, melted
  • Flaked or coarse salt, for garnish
  • Whole-grain mustard, optional


    Preheat the oven to 350°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

    Cut the pizza dough in small strips, matching the number of cocktail sausages, approximately 25 to 30. Wrap the sausages in strips of dough until covered.

    In a large pot, bring 6 to 8 cups of water to a boil. Add the 3 tablespoons salt.

    Carefully drop the wrapped sausages into the water and boil for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes; remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel–lined plate.

    Arrange sausages on the prepared baking sheet. Transfer to the oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

    Remove the sausages from the oven and brush with butter. Sprinkle with salt and serve warm with whole-grain mustard.
