PLETZELS are made with a dough similar to a bialy but they are rectangular shaped and offer six servings as opposed to a bialy that serves one. Pletzels, yes you sound like you have a lisp when you say their name, also have larger slices of carmelized onions and poppy seeds on top. Top a Pletzel or a bialy with some cream cheese and lox and a few capers and you have a delicious meal with half the calories of a bagel.
Pretzels are sold by individual pletzel. They are roughly 11 x 6 inches. Pletzels freeze well for up to three months.
