Very easy and quick to make garlic knots. Uses a lot of garlic but the flavor mellows and the end result is a great mild garlic flavor on the bread knots.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a cookie sheet.

  • Roll dough on a floured surface into a rectangle. With the shorter side of the rectangle facing you, use a pizza cutter or knife to cut twelve 1 1/2 inch wide strips parallel to you. Then cut right up the middle to cut those strips in half.

  • Twist each strip and tie into a loose knot. Place knots on the prepared cookie sheet.

  • Melt butter in a small pan over low heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes, being careful not to burn. Remove from the stove and stir in parsley. Brush on top of all garlic knots.

  • Cook in the preheated oven until knots are light brown, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush with remaining butter mixture, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Serve warm.

Cook's Note:

You can use refrigerated or frozen pizza dough, or fresh pizza dough from a pizza place.
