To tie the knots, first you need to roll and stretch out the pizza dough (frozen pizza dough is stiff and not pliable after thawing) and then divide them into 24 individual strips.

Roll each dough strip into a short rope and then wrap the dough around your fingers into a knot, tying the knot like you usually do.

Brush the garlic butter mixture on the surface and bake them in the oven.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Freeze Garlic Knots?

Yes, you sure can.

I recommend freezing them in a plastic bag. To serve, just reheat in a toaster oven or microwave.

You may freeze the garlic knots up to a few weeks. To ensure freshness, you may wrap them with a sheet of aluminum foil.

Is This Recipe Keto-friendly?

Unfortunately, this is not a keto recipe. Pizza dough is full of carb.

Yield 24 garlic knots

Prep 20 minutes mins

Cook 10 minutes mins

Total 30 minutes mins


  • 2 lbs. (1kg) store-bought pizza dough (thawed at room temperature)
  • all-purpose flour (for rolling out dough)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon Italian flat leaf parsley (finely chopped )
  • salt


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Divide the dough in half, keeping half covered under a kitchen towel. Roll out the other half on a lightly floured surface with a rolling pin, creating a 10-inch (25cm) square. If the dough is very stiff, use your hands to stretch it.

  • Cut the 10-inch square in half with a sharp knife or pizza wheel to form two rectangles. Cut each rectangle into 12 strips (the cuts should be made so that the strips are shorter and thicker, rather than longer and thinner).

  • Tie each strip into a knot and then arrange the knots on the lined baking sheets. Cover them with a kitchen towel while you repeat the rolling, cutting and tying process with the second half of the dough.

  • Bake the knots for 5 minutes, then rotate the baking sheet and bake an additional 5 minutes or until golden brown and fully cooked.

  • While knots bake, grate the garlic cloves using a Microplane and combine with olive oil and butter in a small sauce pan over low heat. Cook just until butter has melted and mixture is warmed. Remove from heat and stir in chopped parsley.

  • Immediately after baking, brush the baked knots with the garlic mixture and sprinkle with kosher salt. Serve warm.
