  • 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


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

  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's Notes

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.

    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! ;-)
