Garlic Knots

Fresh pizza dough is a versatile ingredient to have in your fridge. It can be turned into savory or sweet snacks with very little effort. Of course you can always knead the dough yourself from scratch; but, I simply can’t pass up buying the fresh dough available at my local grocer. These are Garlic Knots, and they couldn't be simpler to make. A little buttery and garlicky, you will love this fabulous home made snack knots! After shaping and baking the dough, just toss them with melted garlic butter mixture.

Recipe (slightly) adapted from My Kitchen Snippets

Garlic Knots


1 Packet (310-320g) of Fresh Pizza Dough (available at Whole Foods Market)
Olive Oil, for rolling the dough
1 ½ to 2 Tbsp Garlic Butter
½ Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp of Chopped Fresh Flat Leaf Parsley
Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper


Preheat the oven to 375˚F/190˚C.

Divide the dough into 10 pieces, and roll each with a little oil into a rope about 8 to 9 inches long; tie each rope into a knot, take the end lying underneath the knot and bring it over to the top and tuck it into the center and take the other end lying over the knot and tuck it underneath and into the center.

Place the knots on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake the knots for about 18 to 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the garlic butter and olive oil and melt in the microwave oven on high for about 1 minute. Remove the knots from the oven, and toss them with the melted garlic butter, sprinkle with chopped parsley, and season with sea salt and black pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.
