Place the flour, sugar and butter into a large bowl. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the dry ingredients until you get a mealy texture. Add the crushed pretzels and mix through into the mixture. Tip into the lined baking tin, spread it out in an even layer, then press down to make a smooth, even base. Bake for 15-20 minutes - until the top start to colour golden. Remove from the oven and set aside.
