You know what’s a sign of a good pizzeria? Good garlic knots. What’s that? You don’t sell garlic knots? Please excuse me while I take my business elsewhere.
In case you’re unfamiliar with garlic knots, imagine the love child of breadsticks and garlic bread. Now imagine that tied up in a cute little ball, and you’ve got yourself a garlic knot. When done right, they are chewy, tender, and bursting with garlic flavor. It’s just about impossible to stop at one. What’s really fun is unwinding the knot as you eat. I just love deconstructing my food!
Now, when you look at these whimsical twisted bites, you might assume they’d be a pain in the you-know-what to make at home. On the contrary, I’ve got a super simple version that you can make in a matter of minutes, but tastes fresh from the pizzeria. My Pesto Garlic Knots are the easiest Italian treat you can make. So before you pick up the phone and call the pizzeria, give these a try instead!
