A Guide to Garlic Knots (HOW-TO VIDEO)

By Pizza Today

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)

Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Marinara sauce (optional)*If using salted butter, adjust to taste

**3 sticks or 12 ounces
