Pizza Dough Knots

Rolls hot from the oven can take a dinner party from nice to amazing, but with all the other things clamoring for a cook’s attention, home-baked bread tends to fall through the cracks. These knot-shaped, garlic- and parsley-flavored rolls are different: You start with store-bought pizza dough, which slashes prep time; then just roll, brush with butter and flavorings, and bake. The dough knots also work as a stand-alone nibble, served with marinara sauce for dipping.

What to buy: Premade pizza dough is available bagged in 14- or 16-ounce portions at well-stocked groceries. If you’d like to make your own, you’ll need two-thirds of our Basic Pizza Dough recipe.

This recipe was featured as part of our Beyond Pepperoni: 6 Amazing Pizza-Dough Transformations project.

Instructions

  1. 1Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. 2Roll the pizza dough out to a 1/2-inch thickness, then cut it into 1/2-inch-wide strips.
  3. 3Tie each strip into a knot and arrange on a baking sheet.
  4. 4Bake until puffed and brown, about 20 minutes.
  5. 5While the knots bake, combine the butter, parsley, garlic, and a large pinch of salt in a large mixing bowl.
  6. 6Toss the hot knots in the butter mixture as soon as they come out of the oven. Serve with marinara sauce and/or ranch dressing.
