This Is The Pizza Pretzel Recipe You Need In Your Life

To continue our celebration of National Pizza Month, we head to the Nation’s Capital to enlist the help of fellow pizza-loving foodie, Justin Schuble a.k.a. DC Food Porn. For this National Pizza Month recipe, we’ve reimagined the traditional taste of a pizza — and turned it into a giant pretzel. Because if there’s anything better than a giant pretzel, it’s a giant pizza pretzel with mini pepperonis plastered all over it.

This buttery, crispy play on pizza is perfect for those cold October nights. Thankfully, DC Food Porn and Pabst Blue Ribbon have hooked us up with this super simple giant pepperoni pizza pretzel and PBR Ranch dip recipe that will give you some time to chill out and sip on a cold one.

Since October is National Pizza Month, this freshly baked pretzel pie will help you celebrate. In doing so, you should also showcase your unadulterated love for everything pizza and PBR by posting your pizza-based creations on social media and hashtagging “#InPizzaWeCrush.”

DC Food Porn is already way ahead of the game, so take notes and be sure to have plenty of pepperoni pretzel pizzas, PBR infused-ranch dipping sauce and – of course – ice cold PBRs on deck.

Here’s what you’ll need to get started.     

Estimated prep time: 15 minutes
Estimated cook time: 20-25 minutes
Estimated total time: 35-40 minutes

Ingredients:
For the pretzel
16 ounces store-bought pizza dough
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
2 large eggs
1 ½ cups mini pepperonis
1 jar tomato sauce
For the PBR ranch dip
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup PBR
1 package Ranch dressing seasoning mix
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Step 1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Slightly flour a cutting board. Roll the pizza dough into a long rope. Stuff with parmesan and mozzarella. Pinch edges to contain the cheese.

Step 2
Fold dough into a pretzel shape (bring ends together, twist around once, bring ends down into pretzel shape) and transfer to baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush with egg wash, and top with generous amounts of parmesan, mozzarella, and pepperoni. Bake for ~20 minutes at 400F (or until cheese is melted and pretzel is golden brown).

Step 3
While pretzel is baking, prepare PBR ranch dip. Beat the cream cheese, beer and seasoning mix in a large bowl. Add shredded cheddar cheese and stir until evenly combined. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Repeat this process until cheddar cheese is melted, and mixture is fully softened.

Step 4
Serve pretzel with tomato sauce and PBR ranch dip!

Get Food Wasted With This Pumpkin Keg & Pumpkin Pizza Mac ‘n Cheese Duo

The other thing that’s great about October, other than baseball playoffs and halloween parties, is that it’s National Pizza Month. So, to celebrate the best month of the year, FOODBEAST and Pabst Blue Ribbon have teamed up to bring us five dope recipes that incorporate our love for the best things on earth — beer and pizza.  

Since there’s always an abundance of pumpkins around this time of year, it’s time we finally found a functional use for this annual symbol of Fall. Thanks to FOODBEAST’s @BookOfElie, we can finally turn a pumpkin into a functional beer keg — and stuff our faces with pumpkin pizza mac n’ cheese.

pumpkin pizza mac

To help show off your love for all things pizza – and, of course, PBR – proclaim your undying passion for this pumpkin pizza mac and Pabst by showing off your cheesy, scrumptious creations on social media and using the hashtag “#InPizzaWeCrush.” 

pumpkin pizza mac

You’ll need to perform your due diligence to clean out the pumpkin — for the keg and the pumpkin pizza mac  — but, once your Pabst Blue Ribbon pumpkin keg is flowing, it’s going to be worth the effort.

Here’s what you’ll need to get started!

Estimated prep time: 20 minutes
Estimated cook time: 20-25 minutes
Estimated total time: 40-45 minutes

Ingredients:
2 medium pumpkins
2 cups whole milk
1 15-oz can pumpkin purée
1 pound pasta shells
1 ½ cups Pabst Blue Ribbon
1 cup chicken stock
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
8 ounces (1 cup) grated sharp cheddar cheese
4 ounces (1/2 cup) reduced fat cream cheese
1 jar pizza sauce
1 1/2 – 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup medium pepperoni
3-piece Watermelon Keg Tapping Kit

Step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rinse both pumpkins and hollow out guts and most of the flesh.

Step 2
In a large pot over medium-high heat, bring milk, pumpkin, beer, chicken stock, and pepper to a simmer – do NOT boil.

Step 3
Once mixture reaches a simmer, reduce heat to medium and add pasta. Cook for 12-14 minutes or until al dente, stirring frequently. Once pasta is fully cooked, reduce heat even more to low, and add cheddar and cream cheese.

Step 4
Transfer macaroni to pumpkin. Hopefully there’s enough macaroni so it comes to the opening of the pumpkin. Top with layer of tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and pepperonis. Bake off in oven until cheese is melted and the top looks like a delicious pizza.

Step 5
Carve out the second pumpkin. Use instructions on the pumpkin keg tap for how to insert into pumpkin. Pour cans of PBR into hollowed pumpkin.

6 Unexpected Recipes That Use PBR, From Sushi To Sandwiches [WATCH]

We now have six more reasons to place PBR at the top of the grocery list.

For context, we challenged six of our favorite guys known for creating obscenely delicious eats, and asked them to create some more obscenely delicious eats using the golden good stuff PBR—just because we can, and just because we should. (Ask not what PBR can do for you, but what you can do for PBR, right? Something like that.)

Needless to say, our guys delivered, and consequently, history has been made. After all, we’re talking about some of the best. Tym “McBurger Chips” Bussanich. Sushi-making legend Davy Devaux. The Vulgar Fucking Chef, for cheddar’s sake.

PBR pretzel bites, sushi, bacon mac, PABST BLUE REUBEN—this is what happens when you mix fire with fire. You might as well just consider and accept these as your grocery list. Here are six reasons why you need to restock your fridge with PBR immediately:


PBR Philly Cheese Steak Fingers

Tym Bussanich’s genius idea of combining steak marinated in PBR with green peppers, onions, and melted American cheese, all within the cracks of a warm loaf of bread (I like to think of these as sandwich fries). Happiness is just a finger away, y’all.


PBR Bacon Mac and Cheese

This recipe from the Simple Cooking Channel is the ultimate comfort food after a long day wherever: PBR. Bacon. Mac. Cheese. All can be united so effortlessly, it’s almost too good too be true. That’s the joy of Simple Cooking.


Pabst Blue Reuben

An entire sandwich, dunked and fried in PBR batter, and graced with a punderfully appropriate title. We’d be lost without this treasure from Dude Foods.


PBR Tempura Sushi

For many of us, it’s difficult enough making basic sushi. Davy of Make Sushi not only recreated the PBR logo in this PBR-battered roll, but to do so, he imagined the first ever naturally blue rice by using ultra rare butterfly pea flower tea.   


PBR Cheddar Nuggets (in a PBR Can)

The idea of PBR in a PBR can is nice. The idea of PBR Cheddar Nuggets in a PBR can is also nice. Vulgar Chef’s taking things to a whole new level with these cheddar nuggets fried in PBR batter, which he keenly serves in their own can along with a creamy bacon cheese sauce for dunkin’. Dipping cheese into more cheese—that’s what America’s all about.


PBR Sriracha Garlic Cheese Pretzel Bites

Cheesy, salty, and a lil’ spicy—said it before and I’ll say it again, these are the perfect anytime anywhere snack. Seeing a movie tonight? Maybe you pop into your kitchen for a bit beforehand. Maybe you make a couple batches… a couple dozen batches. Maybe you discreetly tuck ‘em into your pockets/purse/mouth and sneak ‘em into the theater with you for a lil’ snack during the show. Maybe you just had the best movie experience EVER.

How To Make PBR Sushi Rolls That Are Battered In Booze And Love [WATCH]

Chef Devaux, better known as Make Sushi, has been known to create some gnarly rolls. You may remember him by his holiday-inspired Santa Claus sushi rolls, Panda rolls and Mosaic rolls. The YouTube Sushi chef has now found a way to create the world’s first-ever Pabst Blue Ribbon Sushi.

First he makes some blue rice from a special tea-dying process shown early in the video. Then the rice is transferred to some nori sheet and fish is added. Make sure you use sushi-grade sashimi.

Closely follow his instructions in the video to properly stack and wrap the sushi roll.

Once the roll is completed, Chef Devaux creates a tempura batter using the PBR. All you need is some tempura flour and a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Dunk your roll in the batter until it’s evenly coated and deep fry until it’s golden brown. Let it cool and start slicing your roll. Finally, cut up some tiny bits of nori and decorate your sushi pieces.

Once your roll is completed, maybe crack open another can of PBR and enjoy.

How To Make PBR Marinated Cheesesteak Bread

PBR Philly Cheesesteak Pull Apart Bread Fries. Say it with me now: PBR Philly Cheesesteak Pull Apart Bread Fries. There’s an unspoken rule that any dish with over 10 syllables in the name is a guaranteed winner, and this recent masterpiece from Tym Bussanich is no exception. Though to make things easier on ourselves, we’re going to call these PBR Philly Cheese Steak “Fingers.”

For context, this is the dude who cut up a Mickey D’s cheeseburger into strips, deep fried them, and made “cheeseburger chips”; the man who made the national evening news by topping a pizza with White Castle burgers. Now, he’s marinating meat with PBR…and we CAN’T. LOOK. AWAY.
