•In a large mixer bowl, combine the yeast, warm water and sugar, agitating until the yeast is dissolved.
•Let stand for 5 minutes, or until the mixture is bubbly.
•While mixing, add the flour and salt gradually until forming a soft dough that is neither sticky nor dry, adding extra flour if necessary.
•Turn the dough out onto a clean work surface and knead until elastic and smooth, about 3-4 minutes.
•Place in a lightly oiled bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.
•Preheat the oven to 400 F. Lightly oil a large baking sheet and set aside.
•Bring the water and baking soda to a rolling boil in a medium-large saucepan over medium-high heat.
•Punch the dough down and turn out onto a clean work surface.
•Separate the dough into 8 pieces and roll each into a rope about 1/2" thick.
•Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut the ropes into pieces about 1/2"-1" in length.
•Drop about 3-4 pieces of dough at a time into the boiling water.
•Boil for about 30 seconds, remove using a slotted spoon, and transfer to a baking sheet covered in parchment paper.
•Repeat this until all of your pieces of dough have been boiled.
•Bake until golden brown, about 10-12 minutes.
•Melt butter and lightly coat pretzels. Top with 1:4 ratio of cinnamon and sugar, or coarse salt.
