Garlic Knots

  • prep: 25 mins
    total time: 1 hour
  • servings: 8




  • All-purpose flour, for shaping dough
  • 1 pound pizza dough, thawed if frozen
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

Cook's Note

To freeze: Prepare through step 1, using a baking sheet lined with parchment paper; freeze until firm, 1 hour. Transfer to a resealable plastic bag; freeze up to 3 months. To bake from frozen: Place knots on a rimmed baking sheet; brush with 1 tablespoon oil. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Proceed with step 3.


  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out dough to a 16-by-10-inch rectangle; with a knife or pizza cutter, cut crosswise into 16 strips. Tie each strip into a knot, and place on a large rimmed baking sheet.

  2. Step 2

    Brush knots with 1 tablespoon oil. Bake until golden, 15 to 20 minutes; transfer to a large bowl.

  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat garlic and remaining 3 tablespoons oil over medium until garlic is fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Pour garlic oil over bread knots in bowl; season with salt and pepper, and toss.

    cook them on parchment paper to avoid the too brown on the bottome. I do that all the time. You could also use a silicone mat also.

    These are pretty good - the bottoms turned out too brown for my taste though. Does anyone know how to avoid this? I'm thinking I'll subtract baking time and see how that goes. I really liked the soft chewy centers dipped in the garlic oil. Yum!

    You can buy frozen pizza dough at the grocery store.....or look in the grocery store where the slice and bake cookies are and you will find pizza dough there also! Hope that solves your pizza dough mystery! ;-)

    Trader Joe's sells fresh pizza dough.

    Where on did you find the pizza dough recipe? All I found were links to other websites and am not sure which one you use.

  • 26 Mar, 2008

    My pizza place told me they cannot sell me pizza dough because of health dept regulations. I live in Minnesota.

    For a great pizza dough go to Click on recipes. I use this for our homemade pizza nights.

  • 26 Mar, 2008

    great idea......tasts very good the day after, too.....or just plain or with butter.

    Why is it unsafe to thaw frozen dough and then freeze it?

  • 25 Mar, 2008

    To palmerli:
    It can be either type of dough. Usually you can get dough right from your local pizza place for a couple of bucks. Much better this way than with pillsbury, although that works just fine.

    Keeping food safety in mind, I wouldn't thaw frozen dough and refreeze without baking them. It would be better to make a dough fresh or buy refrigerated dough if you plan to freeze them for baking later.

    The type of frozen pizza dough can it be like the pillsbury pizza dough or does it have to be a different type of pizza dough.
