Add spinach and cook until wilted, about 3 minutes. Season with Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Remove mixture to a bowl and allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Roll the pizza dough until into an 9 inch by 14 inch rectangle. Cut the dough lengthwise into strips that are 3-inches wide.
  • Fpr each pretzel, stretch one strip of dough to about 14-16 inches long, and 3 inches wide. Sprinkle evenly with feta and mozzarella cheese. Top with spinach mixture. Roll the dough up in a jelly roll fashion to form a long tube. Pinch together the seam and and fold under the ends to close. Lift the dough up by both ends twisting the ends around each other to form a pretzel shape. Place pretzel on baking sheet, brush with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and sesame seeds. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown and cheese has melted.
  • For the Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel: in a small bowl add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 2 tablespoons sugar. Mix to combine and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl add cream cheese, remaining cinnamon and sugar and mix to combine. Place the cream cheese in a pastry bag. On the strip of pizza dough, pipe the cream cheese down the center of the dough. Top with walnuts. Roll log in a jelly roll fashion to form a long tube. Lift the dough up by both ends twisting the ends around each other to form a pretzel. Place on baking sheet and brush the dough with the melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly and serve.
  • For the Pepperoni Pretzel: on the strip of pizza dough, evenly sprinkle with mozzarella cheese, dried oregano and top with half of the pepperoni. Roll the dough in a jelly roll fashion to form a long tube. Lift the dough up by both ends twisting the ends around each other to form a pretzel. Place on a baking sheet, top with remaining pepperoni slices. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly and serve with marinara sauce.
