How To Make Garlic Knots With Pizza Dough

To prepare the garlic sauce:

  1. Remove the dough from the fridge and place it on the counter to warm up. 
  2. Melt the margarine in a small saucepan over low heat.
  3. Add the garlic to the melted margarine and heat on low for 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and cover it to keep the sauce warm.

  6. Repeat until you twist all the bread strips.

Recipe Variations

  • You can substitute the fresh garlic with a teaspoon of garlic powder.
  • Sprinkle red pepper flakes on top for a kick of heat.
  • For extra parmesan twists, sprinkle more grated parmesan on them after brushing them with garlic butter.
  • Substitute the dried parsley with fresh herbs. Oregano is a classic one for Italian dishes.

What To Serve With Garlic Twists 

Dominos garlic knots are perfect as a side for your favorite soup, salad, or pasta dish. They make a great appetizer or snack, especially with a side of marinara sauce, hot cheese sauce, or Yum Yum Sauce.

How To Store the Leftovers 

You can keep extra garlic knots in an airtight container on the counter overnight or in the fridge for up to three days. 

For any longer than that, it is best to wrap the breadsticks in plastic and store them in a freezer-safe container for up to three months.

What’s the Best Way to Reheat

Reheating Dominos garlic knots in the oven is your best option:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Place the thawed breadsticks onto a lightly oiled baking tray and cover tightly with aluminum foil.
  3. Bake the twists for 3 minutes, turn them over, and continue to bake covered for 2 to 3 more minutes or until hot.
