Garlic Knots using Pizza Dough!!


Simple, easy and yummy Garlic Knots made from Pizza dough taste just like the ones that you get from your favorite Pizza outlet. Next time whenever you make Pizza at home do save some dough for these cuties. You can also make garlic bread using the same Pizza dough, just need to flavor it with some garlic butter, brush you some olive oil and put in the oven. Whenever I make Pizza at home, many times save the dough for making make some garlic bread or knots. Or you can tuck the dough in the freezer in ziplock bags and use it whenever you have pizza or some garlic bread carvings. Stays good for over a month. Store-bought pizza dough can also be used for making these knots.  Roll out the dough, brush with garlic butter or dust with garlic powder, tie into knots and bake.

I used my homemade pizza dough for making these knots. I had made Spicy Paneer Pizza and because I always knead some extra dough I made knots along with it. I used garlic powder to dust the dough before tying knots, brushed with olive oil before baking and then tossed it in garlic butter, dried parsley, and some fresh cilantro. Serve these as snacks to your guests or have it with soup or pack for kids’ lunch with marina or pizza/pasta sauce dip. For basic Homemade Pizza dough recipe click on the link.. Pizza Tonight!!

Let’s see the super easy method to make these cute little knots!!


The amount of ingredients depends on the amount of Pizza dough that we use. I had around 250g of leftover Pizza dough so have specified the ingredients as per the dough, please go as per the quantity of Pizza dough you are using.

Pizza Dough– 250 grams or store-bought 1 Roll of Pizza Dough

Garlic Powder–1 Tsp

Garlic Cloves–4-5

Butter–3 Tbsp

Olive Oil–1 Tbsp

Parsley (Dried)–1/4 cup

Parmesan Cheese–1/2 cup

Chilli Flakes–1/4 Tsp (optional)

Finely Chopped Cilantro/Coriander–1-2 Tsp


Pre-heat the oven to 400 °F or 200 °C. Divide the dough into half.

Roll out each dough into 10×4 inch rectangle.

Sprinkle some garlic powder on the rolled dough.

Cut strips, roll a little and tie into knots.

Brush the knots with olive oil. Bake for 5-7 minutes, turn on the side and bake for another 3-5 minutes.

Take garlic butter in a bowl, add dried parsley and finely chopped cilantro and toss the knots in it. Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on it.

For Garlic Butter:

Melt butter in a pan, add minced garlic and fry for few minutes. Keep aside for use.

Add some chilli flakes to it(optional).Transfer the garlic butter to a bowl, add parsley/ finely chopped cilantro/coriander(optional). I didn’t have fresh parsley so I used fresh cilantro and it added some zesty freshness to the knots.
