A little place called The Garlic Knot in Jefferson County, Colorado (Jeffco for those who know it & all of it’s glory) is where it all started for me. I could not get enough of their garlic knots so I had to make my own.

Pretty easy and all you need is my pizza crust recipe with a few alterations.

Follow the recipe except:

  • Substitute basil for garlic salt (and lots of it!) – I suppose you could keep the basil if you wish, but I omitted it. 
  • In a small saucepan heat 4-5 tablespoons butter and 5-6 cloves of finely
    chopped garlic.
  • Roll out the dough and cut into strips as shown. Then cut those strips in half.
  • Tie the dough in loose knots, tucking in the ends. Brush with the butter garlic mixture (you will have left over for another bath after they bake).
  • Bake in a 425-450 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
  • Dip in the remaining butter/garlic mixture and you’re done!
    See if you can leave room for pizza, okay? I never can.

I get so tired of people talking about how hard it is to bake and/or cook from scratch. Try this recipe out the next time you are craving pizza. I’ve altered this recipe from several I have seen in the past to make it work for me. High altitude hasn’t been an issue for me but just in case be ready to adjust for drier temperatures (for example) by increasing/decreasing the amount of flour and oil you use. **I’ve also used this recipe and split it into 4 or 5 equal pieces and refrigerated the dough for personal size pizzas later in the week**
