Ingredients

  • ¼ cup Olive oil
  • 3 tbsp Minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp Dried basil
  • ¼ to ½ cup Grated parmesan
  • 1 pound pizza dough

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees
    Use pizza dough to make these garlic knots that are loaded with garlic,
  • Remove pizza dough from refrigerator and let warm up to room temperature for easier handling
  • Roll out dough into a square (doesn't matter what size but it should be about ¼ inch thick)
  • Cut the square into 16 pieces (see blog post) (I used a pizza cutter)
  • Roll each piece of the 16 pieces up, as if you were making a croissant
  • Place on a baking sheet or pizza pan, and let rise for an hour or two, depending on kitchen temperature (less during summer, more during the winter) 
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned
  • Remove from oven, and when cool enough to handle, place knots into a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil, parmesan cheese, basil, and garlic (all to taste).
  • Toss the knots around in the bowl, until the knots are all coated with the topping and serve warm. 

Notes

Topping amounts are estimates - I don't measure; adapt to your tastes (if you like garlic, use more, etc)
