Curt's Garlic Knots with Mom's Dough Recipe

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
ziplock bag

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.

  4. Curt, they look more like rolls instead of knots to me...but either way, I just love it with all the garlic, cheese and spices, and the convenient way to make them from the ready made pizza dough from Publix!

    I will check out your mom's pizza dough recipe to make homemade. Thanks for sharing:) xo

  6. I made these (I think the recipe was from the CNYEats Taste of UTica book?) and INHALED them! Love the doughy, bready-ness of the knots. Unfortunately, there is absolutely no self control when I see something like this.
