Mozzarella Stuffed Snowmen

These mozzarella pretzel balls are not only adorable but absolutely delicious! They are definitely higher effort, but it turns out really well. So only do this if you have time to commit to putting this together!

Serves: 6

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 min

Total Time: 50 minutes


  • Pizza dough

  • Mozzarella balls (some whole, some halved, some quartered)

  • 1/4 cup baking soda

  • Egg for egg wash

  • Salt

  • Carrots, black peppers, and pretzels to decorate


  1. Preheat oven at 425º

  2. Set aside 10 mini mozzarella balls. 6 should be full balls, split 3 in half, and the other 2 should be split into quarters.

  3. Take a small section of the pizza dough and flatten the dough in one palm so it's now a flat circle.

  4. Place a mozzarella ball into the middle of the dough and then use your hands to enclose the cheese into the center of the dough, forming a ball. The bigger cheese will serve as the foundation of the snowman, the medium piece as the body, and the small piece as the head.

  5. Set aside and repeat with all the pieces

  6. Boil 4 cups of water and add 1/4 cup baking soda into it

  7. Put your pretzel pumpkins into the water, and let them boil for around 2 minutes (or until they start to float)

  8. Whisk an egg or use melted butter to paint a top layer on your pretzels. That way when they bake, they'll have a nice finishing coat.

  9. Bake at 425 for 10 minutes, or until almost ready

  10. Remove from the oven, and put a small bit of mozzarella on top of each ball (except for the head). Stack the smallest pretzel ball on top of the medium pretzel ball, which stacks on top of the largest pretzel ball. Tip: flatten the pretzel balls so that they balance better when putting it in the oven.

  11. Bake for another 5 minutes. When the cheese melts, it will glue the snowman together.

  12. Remove from the oven and add shaved carrots as a nose, and black peppers for eyes. Add pretzels as arms.
