This recipe is still experimental. Currently it makes something that tastes okay but is too dense. (In part this is due to the lack of gluten, and in part it is due to my aversion to include a step of dipping the pretzel into boiling water.)
Either the ingredient amounts still need adjusting or I should add some baking soda. I'll edit changes as they prove worthy.
In a bowl, mix together:
In a second bowl, combine:
After the yeast "proofs", add to it:
Mix everything together until the dough is smooth. It should not be sticky (add more flour mix) or powdery (add more warm water).
Now make the pretzel shape:
You can just make pretzely bread sticks if you do not care about shape.
Place on a cookie sheet that is either greased or has a silicon mat. Let the pretzel rise for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Beat an egg, and brush the pretzel with it. Sprinkle the pretzel with a topping (coarse salt, cheese, garlic, cinnamon, sugar, sesame seeds, etc.).
Bake the pretzel for 12-15 minutes, until well browned.
