Easy Garlic Knots

These Easy Garlic Knots are a quick and tasty side dish that can be made with just a few ingredients!


  • 1 (13.8 oz) can of Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust(or similar pre-made pizza dough)
  • 2 tablespoons light butterI used Land O’Lakes
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt or garlic saltto taste


  • Pre-heat the oven to 400 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Unroll the pizza dough onto a cutting board with the long edge facing you. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut the dough vertically to make 12 even strips. Tie each of these dough strips into a knot and place on the prepared baking sheet. Place the knots in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  • While the knots are baking, melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for a minute or two until garlic is fragrant. Reduce the heat to low and stir in the Italian seasoning.
  • When the knots are done baking, remove from the oven (but leave it on). Using a silicone pastry brush, brush the butter/garlic mixture from the pan over top of the baked knots. Sprinkle with salt or garlic salt if desired. Place the knots back in the oven for another 4-5 minutes until the knots are golden.
