Earlier this week, we asked our Facebook fans: What’s your bestselling, low-cost menu item? Garlic knots was the undisputed winner. At Pizza Today, we sing the praises of buttery garlic knots. Our Man on the Street Scott Weiner loves them too: “I love the punchy aroma of fresh garlic knots in a pizzeria — and they provide a nice snack while I’m waiting for my pie. All it takes are some
strips of pizza dough, garlic, olive oil and cheese. Voila –– a tasty
side dish that requires no additional ingredients or kitchen equipment!”
So let’s break it down. We’ve pulled a video from our archives of Chef Jeffrey Freehof demonstrating how to make garlic knots and breadsticks. Check it out:
Ingredients you will need:
16 garlic cloves, minced
1 to 2 teaspoons salt*
1-1/2 ups olive oil, melted butter** or combination
8 pounds pizza dough
Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (optional)
