Boiling store bought pizza dough in baking soda / water solution = Pretzels?

NHFoodGirl25 | Aug 15, 201312:50 PM

I read through various homemade pizza dough and homemade pretzel dough recipes online, and it seems that both are very similar. The only real difference (other than pizza dough occasionally having the addition of some olive oil) is the par-boil in baking soda / water before baking (to create the signature soft pretzel crust).

Therefore, can I purchase a bag of pre-made refrigerated pizza dough, shape it into pretzels, par boil and bake - resulting in faster, less-mess, homemade soft pretzels?

In theory, it makes sense. Has anyone ever tried this?
