Garlic Knots

5 from 22 reviews

These delectable Garlic Knots are made easy using already made fresh or refrigerated canned pizza dough.  They can be prepped and in the oven in less than 10 minutes.  For a fabulous appetizer serve with a sprinkle of freshly grated Parmesan Cheese and warm marinara.


  • 1 lb fresh pizza dough (store bought or fresh)
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons fresh grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Marinara sauce (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Cover baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  2. Melt butter in microwave. Stir in the dried oregano, dried parsley, garlic powder and finely grated Parmesan Cheese.
  3. Pat out pizza dough into a rectangle onto a lightly floured surface. Using a pizza cutter divide into twelve even pieces.  Roll each piece into a 5 inch rope about 1/2 inch thick.  Tie into a knot and place on prepared baking sheet tucking the ends in underneath.
  4. Brush the knots with 1/2 of the melted butter mixture. Bake for about 18-22 minutes or until lightly browned.  Brush with remaining butter mixture and serve promptly.  If desired serve with marinara dipping sauce.


  • If the pizza dough is too sticky to work with then knead in a little flour at a time. No more than 1 tablespoon at a time. Then if the pizza cuts are too stretchy and thin then fold each cut in half and roll into about 5 inch rope.
  • For best results bake on a sheet covered with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Bake on the middle rack in the center of the oven.
  • If using biscuit dough split biscuits in half and roll into about a 5 inch rope and twist into a knot.  Cooking time will be reduced to about 10 minutes.
  • I love to serve these rolls with warm marinara.
  • If using crescent dough remove the dough from can and press to seal perforated edges.  Slice into 12 equal strips.  Roll into a 5 inch rope and twist into a knot.  Cooking time will be reduced to 11-12 minutes.
  • Use freshly grated Parmesan Cheese as it is flavor packed and it really does make a delicious difference.
  • These knots reheat remarkably well in the microwave in about 10-15 seconds.
