Garlic Knots

Outta Garlic, Garlic Knots
Serves: 4-6

OBJ: TCW be able to use spices to make up for her lack of garlic (gasp!) for a quick side to have with dinner

¼ C extra virgin olive oil
¼  tsp salt
¼  tsp fresh ground pepper
¼  tsp garlic powder
¼  tsp dried parsley
2-4 ounces pizza dough (about the size of a baseball)

1.      Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2.      In a small bowl, combine all ingredients except dough
3.      Roll dough out to about 1/8 in thick
4.      Cut long strips, should make for 4 long strips
5.      Cut each long strip in half
6.      Loosely tie a knot with each piece of dough, doesn’t have to be perfect or even get all the way through knot hole
7.      Using a pastry brush, brush about 3 dips of the oil mixture on a foil-lined baking sheet
8.      Place knots on baking sheet, brush each knot twice with oil mixture
9.      Bake for 10-12 minutes, flipping knots over ½ way through
10.  Once time is up or lightly browned, place on plate, sprinkle with parmesan cheese (optional)
11.  Enjoy with marinara or by themselves

*** This recipe was inspired by a lack of yet another key ingredient when making dinner: Italian bread! I thought I had a loaf in the freezer, but obviously didn’t. I remembered that I had some extra pizza dough left from the pizza I made earlier in the week, so viola!  This recipe can definitely be doubled, tripled or even quadrupled if you have more dough to use or use upJ
