Here’s an important question: Why aren’t pizza and pretzels getting together more often? To make these, you create a seasoned paste with tomato paste, oil, and all the spices that make pizza taste so good. Toss that all with hard pretzels (the kind you can buy from Snyder’s, for example) and bake. If you’re bringing these as a hostess gift, here’s a fun idea for packaging: Buy a six-pack of beer and slide a bag of the nuggets into one of the beer sleeves. Of course, they’d stand alone as a gift, too.
¾ cup vegetable oil
¼ cup minced dried onion
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 tablespoons garlic powder
4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
4 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
24 ounces hard pretzels, broken into bite-size pieces (8 cups)

How to Make It
Preheat oven to 325°F. Whisk together oil, onion, tomato paste, garlic powder, Worcestershire, oregano, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add pretzels and toss evenly to coat. Transfer to 2 rimmed baking sheets and bake, stirring halfway through and rotating sheets, until golden and fragrant, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool completely. Pretzels will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
