Garlic Knots


Garlic Knots Recipe

Adapted from: Just a Taste
Makes 4 dozen


2 lbs. store-bought pizza dough, thawed at room temperature
All purpose flour, for rolling out dough
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon finely chopped Italian flat leaf parsley


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Divide the dough in half, keeping half covered under a kitchen towel. Roll out the other half on a lightly floured surface with a rolling pin, creating a 10-inch square. If the dough is very stiff, use your hands to stretch it.

Cut the 10-inch square in half with a sharp knife or pizza wheel to form two rectangles. Cut each rectangle into 12 strips (the cuts should be made so that the strips are shorter and thicker, rather than longer and thinner).

Tie each strip into a knot and then arrange the knots on the lined baking sheets. Cover them with a kitchen towel while you repeat the rolling, cutting and tying process with the second half of the dough.

Bake the knots for 5 minutes, then rotate the baking sheet and bake an additional 5 minutes or until golden brown and fully cooked.

While knots bake, grate the garlic cloves using a Microplane and combine with olive oil and butter in a small sauce pan over low heat. Cook just until butter has melted and mixture is warmed. Remove from heat and stir in chopped parsley.

Immediately after baking, brush the baked knots with the garlic mixture and sprinkle with kosher salt. Serve warm.

    Just made these today and I have to say I am very very sad. I finish baking and left these out to cool while I ran out for an errand. I came back in half an hour and every last one was… gone. One of the guilty party was still chewing the last piece. I could smell the evidence on her breath. She smiled at me and laugh. Ah, my gluttonous little piggy.

  9. Lovely garlic knots….mmmm, nice!

    Only 10 minutes cooking time at 350? Are you sure you didn’t mean 450? It’s been 15 minutes plus and the knots still look pretty pale.
