These garlic knots are the easiest thing ever! 4 ingredients and 20 minutes = some seriously addicting, breath-mangling bites. (The bad breath is SO worth it)
Raise your hand if your favorite part of going out for pizza are the breadsticks, cheesebread, or GARLIC KNOTS! I love myself a good slice of pizza, but there’s just something about how pizzerias use up their scraps of dough to create chewy, garlicky, impossibly buttery, little knots of splendor.
I’m a little smitten by them, if you can’t tell.
And while I LOVE to make my own pizza dough to make garlic knots, my foresight into when I’m going to have a mad craving for them isn’t so clairvoyant and ya’ll know that when you have a craving, there’s no waiting for pizza dough to mix, rise, and proof.
So, what’s a girl to do? Take a look! (Also, major nerd alert. I absolutely lack the ability to be a normal person in front of a camera)
See, easy right? Gotta love that refrigerated dough.

I absolutely love garlic, and the bite that fresh garlic gives these knots is what makes them so good, in my opinion. But, if you want to make the garlic a little bit milder, you can cook the garlic in the butter on the stovetop a bit to soften the bite before brushing over the rolls.
- 1 can Pillsbury French Bread Dough
- 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 tbsp butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut french bread dough into 12 portions. Roll each portion out into a log and tie in a single knot.
Place on a lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until tips of the knot are golden brown.
While knots are baking melt butter and stir in garlic and parsley *See Notes*
Spoon garlic butter over knots as soon as they come out of the oven and serve hot!

To make the garlic a bit milder, melt the butter in a small sauce pan and stir in garlic. Cook gently over medium heat about a minute and remove from heat before stirring in parsley.
