If you’ve got a can of pizza dough, you can make these garlic rolls that taste like they came from a restaurant. Serve them with a side of marinara for dipping and watch the compliments roll in!
When I go to my favorite local pizzeria, I always have to order a serving of garlic knots. Who can resist those buttery little balls of dough, especially with a dipping sauce on the side? Luckily, these garlic knots are SUPER easy to make at home. They’re the perfect side dish to any Italian meal.
How to make garlic knots
The first step to making garlic knots is to grab a can of pizza dough. It saves so much time compared to trying to make the dough yourself.
You’re going to want to slice the pizza dough into strips and place the strips flat on a pan. Tie each one into a knot, tucking the ends of the knot underneath as you go.
After you’ve got your knots ready to go, you’re going to brush them with a mixture of butter, garlic, herbs and parmesan cheese. Reserve half of your butter mixture so that you can give your garlic rolls a second coating of flavor when they come out of the oven!
After a quick trip through the oven, you’ve got garlic knot perfection. Add that extra butter, then serve the rolls up hot with a side of marinara for dipping.
I always keep a can of pizza dough in the fridge for when a garlic knot craving strikes. These little guys even make a great party appetizer!

3. I like to serve my garlic knots with a side of marinara sauce for dipping.
We gobbled them up in a few minutes! Going to double the recipe next time.
I tried these out in my Ninja Foodi. I used bake at 400°F
and kept a close eye. Cooking about 2-2.5 minutes and flipping for 2 more minutes seemed perfect. Thank you for the recipe. Very delicious.
I picked this recipe because it used pizza dough instead of biscuit rolls and the recipe seemed simple. I was SHOCKED at how amazing these garlic knots turned out! My husband ate 4 back to back! We both said it was the pizza dough versus the typical biscuit rolls (and the amazing butter garlic Italian topping) that made them so delicious. Great recipe!! Now my official go-to for garlic knots!
These were so very easy to make and they were delicious. I made them. Recently when she friends came over for dinner. They disappeared fast!! Everyone loved them!
What is a good marinara sauce? I don’t care for the jarred brands I’ve found at the store. I do like the one from Little Caesar’s Pizza, but do not have one near me. What do YOU use ?
I like Newman’s Own marinara!
My mom would roll the breadstick in butter then a cinnamon sugar combo. Tie the knot and bake. They were heavenly. You could add a glaze when baked. Now I’m going to have to buy some garlic sticks.
I love these garlicky knots!
OMG…I want these knots…like right now!! this is heaven on a plate, I love this recipe you created, I gotta try these, my family will love them, thank you for the recipe 🙂
Oh man those look so tasty. I love garlic knots.
Yum, would make a great addition to our family movie night.
Those look soooooo good. I’ve never made the knots homemade, can’t wait to try it! Thank you for the great recipe!
I love garlic knots. I need to make these next time we all have pasta for dinner.
My kids love these and it would be nice to make it at home as an after school snack or as an extra side during lunch or dinner! It’s also not difficult to make so I can easily prepare this for them!
Always the perfect side to any meal. I usually make mine from scratch but when pressed for time, I grab pre-packaged breadsticks dough. Your photos are so good I am not letting the day pass without making garlic knots!
This is a dangerous combination for me. I am a garlic, butter, and bread nut. Twist it up in a cute little knot… irresistible!
Our family loves garlic knots! Ok, I LOVE garlic knots! I think these with lasagna should be on the menu soon!
These look absolutely delicious! They would go great with pasta night!
Garlic knots are one of my favorite foods on earth. I am so excited to try your recipe.
Those look so good. I make homemade garlic bread all the time, but I like the extra fancy that’s added when you knot it up like that. Swanky!
Those knots are a great side to any dinner. It is good to know you can make such a delicious knot without having to make the dough. I will try to recreate this on my own soon.
