Recipe for Homemade Garlic Knots

Updated on September 26, 2011

Garlic Knots: Great for a Superbowl Party

Garlic knots have become a popular staple at pizzerias everywhere. Probably because they take the allure of garlic bread and put it into bite-size form. Who doesn't like food you can just pop in your mouth? Garlic knots are pretty simple to make, and not to mention fun. You can make them with store bought bread or pizza dough, or left over homemade dough. I have a special dough that i use just for garlic knots and bread sticks. Here it is:

  • 1 1/2 tsp yeast
  • 1 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 2 cups all purpose flour 

Mix the first 6 ingredients together in a bowl. Add the flour and stir to form a sticky dough. Let the dough rise without kneading for 2 hrs. Lightly press the dough down and form it into a ball. Let it rise 1 1/2 hrs more. Lightly press it down and form it into a ball being careful not to press too much air out of the dough. Let it rise 1 hr. The dough is ready to use (it should be a little sticky). The long rises and no kneading will give you garlic knots that have some chew, but are still tender and light. 

Forming Garlic Knots 

Whatever dough you use, turn it out onto a floured surface. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into strips about 4-5 inches in length and 1/2-3/4 inches wide. Being careful not to flatten the strips and press all the air out, tie the strips of dough into knots and place on a greased baking sheet. When you have filled a baking sheet place them into a 400°F oven for 15min.

For the Garlic Butter

In a small sauce pan add 1/2 stick salted butter, 1/4 cup olive oil, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1tbsp italian seasoning, 2 tbsp finely minced garlic, and a pinch of salt. Heat this until the butter is completely melted.

Toss the warm dough knots in the garlic butter and as easy as that you have garlic knots. Serve them warm. You can dip them in marinara sauce, but they are absolutely delicious as is.
