Did you know you can make bagels out of pizza dough?! It’s true! They don’t quite have the delicious crust as a New York Bagel, but they are pretty tasty. I like mine with Everything seasoning!


1 pound pizza dough
Cream cheese, for serving

Boil mix:

3 quarts water
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon baking soda

Everything Spice:

1 tablespoon pretzel salt
1 tablespoon granulated onion
1 tablespoon granulated garlic
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1 tablespoon sesame seeds


  1. Measure out pizza dough in 2.5-3 ounce balls. Roll balls into a smooth ball and place on a baking sheet in a warm area to rise for 10-15 minutes.
  2. After balls have rested, shape each ball into a bagel by pushing fingers through the center of the ball and carefully working the opening larger so you have a nice ring. Return shaped bagels to the baking sheet to rest for another 15 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 400˚ F, bring a large pot of water to boil, and mix together spice mix.
  4. When ready to boil, add salt and baking soda to boiling water. Boil bagels for 1 minute per side. After boiling, remove and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle boiled bagels liberally with everything seasoning.
  5. Bake bagels at 400˚ F. for 18-20 minutes, rotating once halfway through. Finished bagels should be golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Serve bagels while warm with cream cheese or butter.

Leftover bagels will deflate a bit, but are still good toasted with toppings.
