Rosemary Garlic Knots

How can you go wrong with garlicky carbs? Prepare this aromatic play on the traditional garlic knot and you’ll be feeling confident enough to open your own neighborhood Italian joint. Serve with lots of napkins :)

Serves: 4 - 6
Total time: 40 min
Difficulty level: Easy

You’ll need:
1 batch prepared pizza dough
2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan
4 tablespoons melted butter
pinch of salt + pepper

Let’s do it!

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a large rectangle about the size of a cutting board.

  • With a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut dough into 15 - 18 strips width wise (so each strip is about 8 - 12 inches long).

  • Tie each strip into a simple knot, place on a parchment lined baking sheet and cover with a towel to allow to rise slightly (10 - 15 minutes) while preparing the rest of the recipe.

  • Preheat oven to 350 °.

  • Whisk the melted butter with the Parmesan, garlic powder and minced rosemary.

  • Use a pastry brush or spoon to coat each knot liberally with the butter mixture. Leave about a tablespoon of mixture for later.

  • Sprinkle with pinch of salt and pepper then bake for 12 - 16 minutes, watching carefully as they can brown very quickly.

  • Remove from oven, transfer to a plate and spoon the remaining garlic butter mixture over the knots.
