Prep: 1 hour 20 minutes


10.5 g instant yeast

1 1/4 tablespoon malt

1/3 cup oil

4 1/2 tablespoon honey

5 cups warm water

9 1/2 cups high-gluten flour

4 tablespoon salt

5 1/2 cups old dough

seeds of choice (sesame, poppy)

tomato sauce


pepperoni (optional)


1. Preheat the oven to 460° F. In an electric mixer with a dough hook, mix yeast, water, and honey together. Let stand for about 5 minutes.

2. Add rest of ingredients and mix for about 10 minutes until dough can "pull a window." Place the dough in a clean, lightly oiled bowl, cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap, and let the dough rise at room temperature for one hour.

3. Portion dough to 4 oz. balls, then roll out into 4 inch long strands.

4. Next, take each strand by the ends and mold ends together to form a bagel shape.

5. Let bagels stand for 5 minutes and dump into honey water mixture for about 5 minutes. Strain and sprinkle seeds on the bagels, then bake in the oven for about 10 minutes.

6. Allow bagels to cool slightly. Reduce oven temperature to 375° F. Cut each bagel in half and top with your favorite tomato sauce, cheese, and pepperoni. Bake for 10 minutes to achieve bagel bite status.
