Yummy, buttery, garlicky, herby bread. All good things. And very easy to make since I used pre-made pizza dough. I’m not that great at tying knots into raw dough strips, it would seem. But that didn’t matter a bit. These buttery garlic herb knots came out tasting perfect.

Get To Dippin’!

For the marinara I used my absolutely go-to homemade pizza sauce. It has the perfect pizza sauce flavor. I make it by the gallon (well, it seems that way at least) and freeze it in small portions so I always have it on hand. It’s perfect for dipping a few buttery garlic herb knots.

Serve a little warmed pizza sauce or marinara on the side for dipping the bread. I use these little sauce dipping cups. They’re the perfect single-serve size!

Also try my easy cheesy breadsticks.

  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter.
  • Stir in the thyme, rosemary, 1 tablespoon of the Parmesan, and the garlic powder.
  • Lightly dust a work surface with flour.
  • Remove pizza crusts from tubes and unroll onto the surface. Roll out into rectangles.
  • Brush tops of dough with butter mixture. Fold dough over on top of itself.
  • Using a pizza cutter, cut each dough in half, then repeat until you have 8 strips about an inch wide. You don’t have to get too particular in how wide they are on how straight they are cut.
  • Grab ends of each strip and ‘tie’ them into a knot. Gently, don’t pull on the ends real hard or the dough will break.
  • Lay knots onto a baking sheet (you’ll need two pans) sprayed with non-stick spray. Fold the tips of the dough under the knots so they don’t cook too fast.
  • Bake 18-20 minutes or longer depending on how golden brown you want your knots.
  • Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Brush with remaining butter and sprinkle with remaining cheese and serve hot with warmed marinara sauce for dipping if desired.
