You can make these Garlic Parmesan Knots with frozen, store-made pizza dough, or use the scratch dough recipe below (less than an hour start to finish!). Perfect as a side for pasta or make mini knots and serve with pizza sauce dip for a great party treat.

I have a great Spring pasta planned for dinner tonight (will post the recipe for that later this week) and these Garlic Parmesan Knots are going to round out the meal. Even made from scratch, they are a quick and easy alternative to standard garlic bread. And if you’re thinking that you don’t want to be bothered with that whole yeast thing, here’s the best part … you can make these anytime with frozen or store-bought pizza dough!

I have provided the recipe for the dough that I use though, if you want to make your dough from scratch. It’s quick – less than an hour from start to finish, so you don’t have to plan too far ahead to include these with your dinner.

As well as the perfect side for pasta, these tasty buns also make perfect party food. Use the same recipe below, but make mini, bite-sized knots and serve warm with pizza or marinara sauce for a dip.

    What beautiful looking little breads! I always have some homemade pizza dough in the freezer so could defrost and make these in an instant – yum!

      Thanks so much. They would be really quick and easy if you already have dough handy. We had the last few as a late night snack last night with some pizza sauce dip. Yum

    These look amazing! I am always looking for a garlic bread recipe but never seem to have enough time to make it. I’m pinning this so I can make it the next time we have pasta!

      Thanks Kathy. These are a great thing to have as a last minute side. I love how quick and easy they are, even from scratch.

    These are such a great idea and they sound delicious! So much prettier than your average garlic bread too!

      Thanks Rosie. They are pretty little buns. They look lovely on the side of the plate or in a big basket.

    These look killer! So pretty — I love the shape! The garlic oil sounds like it would take these to the next level, especially dipped into some marinara, yes please.

      Thanks Sophie and yes, they were really nice dipped in marinara. (They re-heated really well too, which was nice)

    Garlic knots are my favorite when eating in a pizza place. Yours are so soft and cheesy. No doubt I will be making these.

    • Jennifer M May 6, 2013 at 6:33 pm

      They are a great snack, so hope you get a chance. I’m sure you’ll enjoy having them at home.

    These look amazing! I’m definitely going to be trying them out.

    By the way, would you mind telling me what camera you used? The photos are absolutely gorgeous.

      Hi Jess and thanks so much. I use a Canon T3i DSLR, usually with a 50mm 1.8 lens.
