I'll have to try it too! I'm not as much of a pizza fan as I am a fan of Stromboli (same dough).
Hey now this is a cool thread! There is a shrimp and pasta recipe I came across online a year or so ago that is just wonderful! I've measured everything in the recipe as is with the exception of the herbs, I just add to my taste on those so not sure about the recipes measurements perse, although the recipe is so good I'm sure the herbs are a great starting point!

Thank you for these, and welcome to the thread!
This one is a great buns recipe. We use it all summer for burgers on the grill.

Making soft pretzels at home has never been easier! Store bought or homemade pizza dough makes some of the best pretzels you will ever taste.
pizza dough (store-bought or homemade)
melted butter or 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment or a silpat.
Divide the dough into 3 or 4 ounce pieces of dough (1/3 - 1/2 cup each).
On a lightly floured surface roll out under your palm into 20 - 24 inch long ropes. It may take a few minutes to get them that long - roll them out then allow the dough to rest for a few minutes then repeat until you get to desired length. You can also pick up the dough and roll it between the palms of your hands working your way down the length of the rope.
Form the ropes into pretzels by making a circle with them then twisting the two ends together and bringing it down onto the bottom of the circle. Place on baking sheet, brush with butter or egg and sprinkle with salt. Repeat until all the pretzels are made.
Bake 12 - 16 minutes depending on their size until golden brown.They are best eaten warm or within a few hours of baking.
To reheat: 350 degrees F. in the oven for 5 - 10 minutes or until warm.
What to Eat for New Year’s Luck and Why
The first day of a new year is fresh with possibility. What changes will the next twelve months bring? What will happen in your relationships, finances, health, and career? Thinking about these topics prompts many people to set goals, dream dreams and make plans for the next year—but before you do anything else, think about this: what’s lucky when it comes to New Year’s Day?
Growing up, did you ever eat sauerkraut, black-eyed peas, collard greens, roast pork or donuts on New Year’s Day? Well, legends say that what you eat on the first day of the year can dictate what kind of luck you’ll experience in the next twelve months. Sound crazy? It may be. Then again, if eating lucky food could bring you a fresh start in the new year, wouldn’t it make sense to give it a try? If you’re up for betting on a great start to a new year, consider some of these luckiest foods and incorporate them into your New Year’s Day plans!
Leafy greens are more than good for your health. Eating them on New Year’s Day is considered a symbol for bringing in more green—i.e., the paper kind—into your life in the coming year. If that sounds like the kind of luck you’re willing to hope for, why not go all out: drink a green smoothie for breakfast, make a big salad for lunch and eat sautéed greens as a dinner side dish for good measure!
Here’s another way to boost your financial luck in the new year: eat beans. Like greens, beans symbolize money. When you eat a lot of them, you metaphorically eat bundles of coins coming your way, so why not? Make a big stew, add some cooked lentils to a salad or make your favorite hummus dip to wish for better financial returns in the new year.
It’s hard to think of a more symbolic way to wish for prosperity and plenty than with the portly, plump pig. People eat pig on New Year’s Day to let this animal’s abundance rub off on them. You can eat the pig any way you like, in bacon and eggs, ham sandwiches, sausage pizza, prosciutto-wrapped dates or you name it!
With their coin-like scales, fish is another lucky meal idea that works beautifully for celebrations and feasts. Long loved by Catholics on meat-free holidays and popular as far back as the Middle Ages for its ability to be preserved and transported, fish has been said to symbolize everything from fertility to long life.
Foods Shaped Like Rings
Ah, the circle of life. Just as one year ends, another begins, and so it goes. Start New Year’s Day with a breakfast of ring-shaped foods—bagels, doughnuts, bundt cake or the like—to symbolize the way a year comes full circle.
What will you eat this New Year’s Day—and what luck may come your way because of it? There’s only one way to find out. Try these five ideas to make your 2018 better and brighter than ever!
My mom always made roast pork and sauerkraut for New Years. I started with that, then switched to Hoppin' John (black eyed peas, etc) when we lived in VA.
A friend of ours had a NewYear's party and asked everyone to bring their traditional NY's food, it was really interesting!!
And this year, I'm going with Hoppin' John!! Ham hocks and black eyed peas, with a bit of garlic powder and chili powder, over rice.
