> Cooking spray
> 1/3 cup baking soda
> 1 (16 oz) ball refrigerated pizza dough, at room temperature
> 8 turkey or beef hot dogs
> 1 large egg, beaten
> Kosher salt, as needed
> 1/4 cup favorite mustard
> Ketchup (optional)


Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment and spray parchment with the cooking spray. Fill a large pot three-fourths with water. Add the baking soda and bring to a boil on high.
Meanwhile, place the dough on a lightly floured surface and roll into a 9x12-inch rectangle. Cut dough along short side into 8 equal strips. Wrap dough strips around the hot dogs and pinch dough onto itself to stick.
Once water is boiling, gently drop 4 hot dogs into boiling water and cook 1 min., turning gently as they cook. Using a slotted spoon, transfer hot dogs to prepared baking sheet, spacing 1 inch apart. Repeat with remaining hot dogs.
Brush the beaten egg over dough and sprinkle with salt. Bake 10–15 min., until dough is a deep brown. Serve with the mustard or ketchup.
