  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter plus more for baking sheet
  • 1 pound store-bought fresh (or frozen, thawed) pizza dough, at room temperature for 30 minutes
  • All-purpose flour (for dusting)
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • Flaky sea salt (such as Maldon)

Recipe Preparation

  • Lightly butter a baking sheet. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface into a 12-inch square. Cut dough in half. Cut each half crosswise into 1-inch-thick strips (for 24 strips total). Tie each strip into a knot, gently stretching dough as needed. Place on prepared sheet. Loosely cover with plastic wrap; let rise in a warm place until slightly puffed, 1-1 1/2 hours.

  • Preheat oven to 375°. Bake knots until cooked through and golden, 25-30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, heat 1/2 cup butter with garlic in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until garlic is fragrant, about 3 minutes. Transfer garlic butter to a large bowl; stir in oregano.

  • Place warm bread knots in bowl with garlic butter; toss until well coated. Transfer to a platter. Sprinkle with flaky salt.

  • To scale up, double or triple the ingredients. Arrange racks in upper and lower thirds of oven. Bake knots, rotating pans halfway through (work in batches if tripling). Serve half of knots. When platter runs low, rewarm remaining knots in a 350° oven.

Transform ho-hum refrigerated biscuits into this garlicky oregano monkey bread

These are kind of like garlic knots meet monkey bread. Monkey bread is small knots of bread dough tossed in butter and some seasonings (often sweet ones, like cinnamon and sugar), and piled into a pan to bake. They partially fuse together, but not completely, so you have to pull it apart with your fingers … monkey style.

The deliciousness of lightly buttery, garlicky bread knots is so hard to resist — every time I’m at a pizzeria I work hard to justify the ordering of a couple of them on top of the pizza purchase. This recipe, anchored with refrigerated biscuit dough, takes the pleasure of garlic knots and turns them into a fun and dead easy pull apart treat. Just before you slide them in to the oven, they're dusted with Parmesan — how good is that? You can use fresh oregano if you have it, dried if you don’t.

Quick & Easy Garlic Parmesan Knots

Fluffy soft, delicious garlic knots made in 10 minutes – just 3 ingredients (plus some spices) and no rising required. You won’t believe how easy these are… and what a scrumptious side they make to any meal!

I’m sorry, but how did we end up in April?! Cuddled up in blankets with my hands around a hot cocoa this winter, spring seemed like an eternity away. But, my growing belly has reminded me that time is chugging along and warmer weather is quickly approaching… as is our baby girl!

Thus, I’ve been focusing (maybe a little obsessively) over cleaning, organizing, and planning ahead to make our lives a little easier in the months to come. Freezer meals are being made, tiny onesies are folded in drawers, and I’m pretty sure I’ve bought out Target’s entire stock of plastic bins, big and small. For storing what? EVERYTHING. And every “thing” to come.

Say hello to nesting overdrive!

All these baby projects have left little time to think about much else, including dinner. But, with a busier schedule comes quicker and easier meals. I’ve come up with some great solutions for keeping them scrumptious yet fast, which I can’t wait to share with you!

My favorite quick dinner lately has been grilled steak, chicken or fish (easily marinated in the morning), a fresh green salad, and a basket of these soft, garlicky Parmesan knots. OMG. Lick-the-plate delicious, if I do say so myself… thanks in part to my grill-master hubby.

But, to the bread (the best part) – Have I told you how easy these knots are? What’s that, I haven’t?

Well, it’s about darn time I do.

All you need for these doughy, delicious garlic knots is THREE ingredients, plus some spices. That’s it! Grab a can of buttermilk biscuit dough and stretch each biscuit into wiggly ropes (fun for kids). Tie each rope into a little knot. Mix up butter, Parmesan, garlic powder, oregano and parsley in a bowl, and slather that buttery goodness over top. Bake ‘til golden, brush on a bit more butter, and you’re done!

Easy enough for weeknights, date nights in, and… well, any night! There’s no limit to all the mouthwatering main courses you can serve them alongside.

Give ‘em a go for yourself, and I guarantee you’ll be hooked like me on this quick and easy side!

Easy Parmesan Garlic Knots

Usually, I’m pretty good at practicing restraint when it comes to things like bread and dinner rolls. Except when I make these Parmesan Garlic Knots.

Honestly, I don’t know what it is, but I cannot stop! They’re just so buttery, and garlicky, and Parmesan cheesy. And there is probably something in that biscuit dough too!

I was first introduced to the garlic knot at one of our local pizza joints, and I was pretty much in heaven. I think my family would go there just to order the garlic knots.

So I knew I had to try making these buttery, garlicky little pieces of bread at home. Otherwise we’d be spending a fortune on take-out garlic knots!

If you really have an aversion to canned biscuit dough, you could always whip up a batch of your favorite pizza dough and go from there.

But I’m pretty sure those biscuits in a can are somehow infused with buttery goodness, and that may just be the secret to this recipe. It also may be what makes these garlic knots kind of addictive.

My whole family devours these almost as quickly as I can make them. And they are so easy, I have to restrain myself from making them too often.

Because once they’re made, I know I’ll be saying goodbye to self-restraint of any kind. So yes, you should absolutely make a batch of these garlic knots as soon as possible!


Add the water to a large bowl, then add the sugar and yeast. Let sit about 5 minutes, until the yeast is starting to bubble to the top, then stir.

Add the olive oil and salt and then add 3 cups of the flour. Stir to combine then turn out to a floured surface and begin to knead, working in small amounts of the remaining flour until you have a soft workable dough. Knead for about 5 minutes and then place in an oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap and set in a warm place to rise.

Let it rise until doubled (about 1 hour).

  • Add the yeast & sugar to the water
  • Add the salt, oil and flour
  • Let rise until doubled

Once the dough has doubled in size, melt the butter with the garlic and oregano.

Divide the dough into 12 equal portions and roll each portion into a rope approximately 10 inches long.

Make a loop in the rope, like a loose knot, then brush with garlic butter.

Next, fold the top end under the knot through the centre, and the bottom end up and over the knot through the centre. Continue with all 12 ropes.

Place 2 inches apart on a parchment lined sheet pan. If you don&rsquot have parchment you can spray with cooking spray or brush with oil.

After you have made all your knots, brush them all with garlic butter again (because you can never have enough garlic butter), then set aside in a warm place for 30 minutes.

  • Tie a knot in your rope and brush with garlic butter
  • Fold the top end under and the bottom end over through the centre.
  • Brush all knots with more garlic butter.

After the knots have risen for 30 minutes, sprinkle with kosher salt and pop in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes until golden brown.

How do you make them?

Garlic knots start with pizza dough, which is a lean yeasted dough. Combine warm water with a little bit of brown sugar and yeast. Stir to dissolve and proof the yeast. Then combine the yeasted water with flour, a little olive oil and salt.

Knead the dough, then let it rest to rise until double. Once doubled, divide the dough into 12 pieces and roll out the dough into ropes. Tie the ropes into knots.

Then make the butter garlic sauce! Cook fresh garlic with butter, then add in garlic powder, dried oregano, Parmesan cheese and salt. Brush the sauce on the dough knots and bake.

Once baked, toss the knots in the remaining leftover garlic sauce that has some chopped parsley in it, and serve!


Garlic Parmesan Bread Twists or Garlic Knots are easy to make, buttery and melt-in-mouth, super soft and fluffy made using fresh homemade pizza dough from scratch which is then topped with flavorful garlic cheese butter.

Garlic Bread Twists, Breadsticks, or Knots are one of the best side dishes or appetizers to serve with marinara or dipping sauce for a Pizza party or dinner party. We generally like to have pizza night or pasta night once in 15 days and today on the menu it was BIANCA PIZZA – CLASSIC WHITE PIZZA with these yummy Garlic Bread Twists.

This is copycat Domino’s Pizza style bread twists or I can say it tastes even better.

I am a big fan of Domino’s Pizza. We just love the taste and flavor of their pizza plus it comes with a reasonable price tag. But it’s always fun to replicate things that you love. Am I right?

This post was in my draft for a long time now. I prepare it often with pizza or pasta but due to personal commitments couldn’t post this on time as promised.

The pizza dough is made from scratch at home. This pizza dough gives you soft and fluffy twists or knots plus while making dough at home you are free to add any additional flavorings to the dough if you like plus it’s free from all preservatives.

Having said that, if you are in a hurry you can use store-bought dough or buttermilk biscuits. The recipe below yields one 10 inch pizza or 14 to 16 bread twists. If you want to make both of them together, simply double the amount of ingredients while making the dough.

I love to make twists over knots just because the shape is much fun and it’s easier to make. You just have to twist the strips to get these shapes. But if you know how to tie a knot, go for it. I have included steps on how to make both twists and knots.

Ingredients for Garlic Parmesan Bread Twists | How to Make Garlic Knots

For the pizza dough (If using store-bought ignore this step)

3/4 cup warm Water
1 packet Active dry yeast ( 2 1/4 tsp)
1 tsp Sugar
3/4 tsp Salt
2 tbsp Olive oil
1/4 tsp Garlic powder
2 to 2 1/4 cups All-purpose flour (maida, Use more or less as needed)

For the topping
5 tbsp melted Butter
1 tsp Garlic powder
3 tbsp Parmesan cheese (fresh or powdered)
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Dried parsley or Basil (or both)
1/4 tsp Oregano

Steps to Prepare Garlic parmesan Bread Twists | How to make Garlic Knots
Step I (Prepare the pizza dough. You can even use store-bought dough or buttermilk biscuits to make these twists.)
  • In a large mixing bowl, add warm water, sugar, and mix. Sprinkle yeast. Cover and leave it undisturbed for 5 to 10 minutes. Let the yeast activate.
  • Now add salt, olive oil, garlic powder, half of the flour and mix using a wooden spoon or spatula. Add the remaining flour in parts and mix till dough is formed.
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead it to form a soft and smooth dough. When you poke the dough with your finger, it should slowly bounce back which means the dough is ready to rise. Else knead for some more time.
  • Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover, and let it rise at room temperature for 1 hour or until doubled in size.

Step II (Shaping the dough – twists or knots – the way you prefer, I like twists as they are super easy to make)
  • When the dough is ready, transfer it to a lightly floured working surface and punch it down.
  • Roll the dough into a rectangle approx 3/4 inch thick.
  • Using a pizza cutter cut them into 16 strips.
  • Twist each strip to form bread twists (as you see in the pictures), stretching them if necessary, and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet at least 1 inch apart.
  • If you prefer to make knots: Tie each strip loosely into knots (over, under, through), tucking the ends. Stretch them if necessary. You can tuck the ends of the knot underneath the knot or leave them out.
  • Cover the shaped bread twists and let this rest for 20 to 30 minutes. This will puff up and give you softer, airy bread twists.
Step III (Baking Bread twists or Garlic knots)
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a small bowl mix melted butter, garlic powder, parmesan cheese, basil or parsley (or both), salt, oregano, and mix well.
  • Brush this mixture on each twist. Reserve some to apply when the twists or knots come out of the oven.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown on top.
  • Remove from the oven and brush with any remaining butter mixture. Sprinkle with some more parmesan cheese if desired.

Tips and variations to garlic parmesan topping
  • While making garlic parmesan butter you can add olive oil along with butter.
  • I add seasoning available in my pantry. You can add basil, parsley, thyme, oregano, or any Italian seasoning. Vary the amount to taste.
  • I dust it with parmesan powder at the end to give it restaurant-style look and taste. You can use fresh or powdered parmesan.
  • If fresh herbs are available you can also garnish them at the end for more flavor.
  • To make it spicy or give it a little kick, feel free to add red pepper flakes and black pepper powder.
  • If you are not able to find garlic powder you can even add freshly minced garlic cloves.
How to make vegan garlic knots or bread twists?

The pizza dough is vegan. For the topping, instead of butter use olive oil and vegan parmesan cheese.

How to store any leftover garlic parmesan twists or knots?

These taste the best when served fresh. But if you have any leftovers, you can store them in airtight container at room temperature for 2 days or in the refrigerator for a week. You can keep it in the freezer (once cooled completely) up to 2 months. Reheat using your preferred method.

How to make breadsticks with pizza dough?

Now if you are feeling quite lazy and don’t want any additional work of making twists or knots, you can make delicious garlic parmesan breadsticks. To make garlic breadsticks, simply roll the risen dough into a rectangle. Transfer to a baking sheet. Cover and let it sit for 10 minutes. Using a pizza cutter, score them into breadsticks of desired thickness. Brush it with the garlic parmesan herbed butter and bake.

Housing & Residential Education

Sometimes when you are scrolling through TikTok at 1 in the morning, you see something absolutely delicious and tell yourself, "I could totally make that!" Well, I finally decided to actually make one of the infamous TikTok recipes. I used a quick and easy recipe from the TikTok user @belspies to make homemade garlic knots in my Benchmark Plaza kitchen. Read below to learn about how I did it.

  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 package Trader Joe's pizza dough
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons graded parmesan
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Put aluminum foil or cooking grease on a cookie sheet.
  3. Peel one clove of garlic and put in oven safe dish with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  4. Roast in the oven for approximately 10 minutes, or until soft and golden.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, oregano, parsley, salt and graded parmesan until combined.
  6. Take the freshly roasted garlic and crush or cut into smaller bits. Then, mix into butter mixture.
  7. Take the pizza dough and cut into even strands about 1/2 inch wide and 8-12 inches long. Fold the strands into a knot or pretzel shape.
  8. Drizzle butter mixture onto knots generously.
  9. Place knots on a cookie sheet in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Garlic knots should rise to nearly double their size with a light fluffy quality.
  10. Enjoy!

*The TikTok which can be found here calls to preheat the oven to 400 degrees but my oven runs hot, and I found 350 degrees to be just as effective.

After making these awesome garlic knots, I am excited to keep making @belspies great dishes. She posts many recipes, both sweet and savory, but is most well known for her pies. If you try any of her recipes, let us know by sharing on your social media and tagging @uofuhousing.

Herbed Garlic Knots

The weather is warming up and our herb gardens are thrilled at finally being able to sprout new sprigs. Sometimes we get a little zealous and start growing herbs too early in the year and what we get are dead plants if we get an unexpected wave of cool evenings. But now is the time of year that pretty much all the herbs are thriving, happy, and not limp and tired. That means we can make another big batch of our favorite herbed garlic knots because we really need to keep up with all the new herb flavors were collecting in the garden.

use a combination of your favorite herbs

Probably one of the easiest baked breads we&rsquove made are the garlic knots. They&rsquore not only easy, but appreciated by everyone that hovers over the platter. They can be a meal on their own, or added to an awesome charcuterie/cheese platter. When we make tomato soup, a few of these knots are the perfect accompaniment and different from the standard cracker.

The hardest part for us to make these herbed garlic knots is deciding what fresh herbs to use. Parsley is always a great starting point, but don&rsquot forget that fresh thyme, mint, dill, basil and oregano add fantastic layers of flavor to these green knotted jewels.

homemade garlic knots are awesome

Making these garlic knots take me back to my days of working in the restaurant business. Every day the kitchen would crank out a huge basket of garlic knots that we&rsquod sell throughout the day. Those little devils would also serve as staff sustenance, since more often than not, breaks were skipped in order to get the day&rsquos tasks done. Even after consuming what seems like a thousand garlic knots, I have never tired of snacking on them to get me through a long day. After leaving the restaurant business, that daily ritual inspired me to create my own versions, and they are all as addicting as ever.

Garlic Knots

Want the easiest and best side dish? These Garlic Knots are super simple, flavorful, and perfect for any meal! Minimal ingredients make this a hit.

We are all about easy recipes when it comes to this household. A lot of the time we are low on time with all the kids having so many different things going on at once.

I have to admit, I am a huge carb lover. But I mean who isn’t. It’s soooooo comforting. There is something about bread that just makes me want to eat it all.

These Garlic Knots are one of my kid’s favorite recipes and always go over well when we make them for dinner along side our homemade spaghetti sauce or even our Pasta e Fagioli soup. Seriously, its one of those sides that go well with just about anything.

This Garlic Knot recipe whips up so quickly you would be amazed. People think that you would spend hours creating these cute little bread knots when in reality, you spend literally 20 minutes on the whole recipe.
