|Mom's Pizza Dough Made Into Garlic Knots....|
One of our favorite appetizers before a big meal on Sunday's. It's a family tradition. We just can't eat a big pasta dinner without these. Here's what I use on mine:
1 package of Mom's Pizza Dough Recipe or store bought around 1 pound bag
4 tablespoon melted butter
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon each: dried oregano, basil, garlic powder, parsley
salt and pepper to taste
cayenne pepper to taste
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
Take pieces of the dough roll into ropes and then tie them in a knot, using around three inches of dough to do that for each one. Place on a greased cookie sheet to rise 1/2 hour. Bake on 400 degree oven until brown. While they are cooking get the bag ready to shake them in.
Pour all the ingredients in a ziplock bag. Add cooked warm garlic knots shake them in the bag while warm. If the garlic knots look a little dry baste them with more melted butter.
