Garlic Knots

Author Nicole Burkholder


  • Pizza dough enough for one pizza- use your own recipe, canned dough or fresh from the deli
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 2 tbsp oregano
  • 2 tbsp basil
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes optional


  • Work your pizza dough into a rough rectangle and then cut into strips using a pizza slicer. The strips will vary in size but should be close to 1/2" wide and 3 1/2" long.
  • Tie each strip into a knot and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 8 minutes, until just starting to brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool on the sheet.
  • Mix all the other ingredients in a baggie or resealable container.
  • Add cooled knots to the mixture and toss until completely coated. Using aluminum foil, create a little "bowl" and place 4-6 knots in each one. Pour a little of the butter mixture over the top, seal loosely and then place back in the oven and finish baking for 3-5 minutes, until golden brown.
