From: Tasty via Facebook

3 C          Shredded cheddar cheese
2 Tbsp    Corn starch
½ C         Beer of your choice (plus 2 tbsp)
1 lb          Pizza dough
5 C          Water
¼ C         Baking soda
1    Egg
Coarse Salt

  Preheat oven to 425˚F and bring water to a boil in a medium pot. Meanwhile, toss the cheddar cheese with the corn starch until it is evenly distributed. In a medium saucepan, bring beer to a simmer. Add in the cheese corn starch mixture and whisk until it begins to thicken.

Slice pizza dough into small pieces, roll into a balls and flatten out. Place a spoonful of the cheese mixture in the center of the dough. Bring top and bottom edges together to seal, do the same with the remaining edges until it all meets at the center and there are no holes for cheese to leak out. Do this for remaining dough pieces. Add baking soda to your boiling water when all dough is stuffed and ready. Immediately drop your dough balls into boiling baking soda water one at a time. Boil for 20-30 seconds then take out and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

In a bowl, combine egg and 2 Tbsp beer, beat with a fork. Brush the mixture onto tops of each ball then top with coarse salt. Bake 15-20 minutes or until all bites have browned.
