RECIPE:

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Serves about 12

Ingredients:

-1pound pizza dough (store bought or homemade)

-6 tablespoons unsalted butter

-3 cloves garlic minced (if you prefer more garlic, don’t hesitate to add another few cloves!)

-1/2 teaspoon Italian herbs

-1/2 teaspoon dried parsley

-pinch of salt ( I am always liberal with salt)

-4 tablespoons grated Parmesan Romano cheese

Optional:

-pizza sauce for dipping!

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 400, live baking sheet with parchment paper

2. Cut your pizza dough into 12 even pieces. On a lightly floured surface, roll the individual pieces into ropes approx. 8 in long. Tie each rope into a loose knot and place on your baking sheet 2 in. apart.

3. In a saucepan, heat butter and cook garlic for about two minutes (or until fragrant) on med-low heat. Remove from the heat and stir in Italian spices, dried parsley, and salt.

4. Brush butter and garlic mixture onto the knots and place into oven. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and brush any remaining butter mixture onto knots. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, and serve warm!
