  • Baking sheet
  • Rolling pin
  • Butter knife for slicing dough
  • Sauce pan and spoon for stirring
  • Oven mitt
  • Serving platter


  • 16 ounces of fresh Italian pizza dough
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/4 cup of minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup of grated fresh parmesan cheese
  • Spray butter (pam)
  • 1/4 cup of flour for rolling your dough

Preheat your oven 350°. Spray your baking sheet with your spray butter.

Dust your clean counter top and rolling pin with flour, next roll your dough to about the size of a medium pizza. 

Next slice your dough in 1/4 inch slices and about 5 inches long. When you tie your dough it will strech a little so you can get a full knot. 

Now tie each strip of dough into a single knot. They don’t need to be perfect. You should get about 20 knots. It depends on how far you rolled your dough, next place them in your baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes or golden brown. Do not over cook. In your sauce pan combine your butter and minced garlic. Heat on low till melted, stirring constantly. 

Once your knots are golden brown place them on a serving platter. Drizzle your butter and garlic over top then garnish with cheese.

Serves about 20
