Well, I must admit, I messed up a little bit on this one. On my mega list of the food in each season, I just wrote “garlic knots” instead of “cheesy garlic knots”. So, sadly, these lack cheese, but I’ll most likely make a cheesy version in the future because it bugs me now haha. ANYWAY!
I decided to add some dipping sauces to this recipe just to add a little something extra. Marinara (open up that jar baby!), homemade alfredo, and a combo between the two (which is my favorite).
Garlic knots are one of those appetizers that I can’t get enough of. I can sit down and eat a whole plate of them if I’m not careful. I was really proud when I made these for the photos, that I only ate one. ONE. Success!
For this recipe, I did a homemade pizza dough (super easy), but you can also use a pre-made pizza dough.
