One batch of my homemade Pizza Dough < (Click on Pizza dough) published on the link provided our family recipe or (pre- made fresh bread dough purchased from the local grocery or bakery). Frozen bread dough makes a soft crust and not crispy if you prefer Italian style do not use that kind that has milk in the dough.
Garlic Knots perfect for any Italian Pasta Meal or as an Appetizer! They are bread dough, tied into knots and brushed with an olive oil and garlic coating. These are addicting I must warn you!
Roll around the size of a golf ball piece of dough into a long rope, tie in a knot. Let rest around 1/2 hour before baking. The longer they rise the bigger they get and lighter the dough. You will need to work with these to see how you like them. I like them firm.
Bake at 400 degree hot oven and baked until browned and cooked for around 35 minutes.
1 lb dough homemade or store bought see link above ( I would double the recipe as this makes around 20)
