I've always wanted to make my own garlic knots and last weekend I decided to do so! I didn't follow a recipe (I thought it was pretty self explanatory), but these were great, easy and are most certainly something I will be making again! They taste great dunked in warm marinara.
1 recipe Pizza Dough (I only used 1/3 of the what my dough recipe makes, and that was more than enough for my husband and me)
1/2 stick butter
2-4 cloves of freshly minced garlic
Preheat oven to 375 and spray a casserole dish with non-stick spray. Roll out dough into a rectangle and cut dough into long strips. Take a length of dough and start knotting! You want the first knot to be in the middle of your length of dough, and then work out from there. Position all knots in the casserole dish. Meanwhile, in a small bowl melt butter and garlic. When completely melted, brush over knots so they are completely coated. Bake for aprox. 12 - 15 minutes, or until the tops are golden in color.
