Use pizza dough to quickly put together these tasty bread knots that you will later season with Italian parsley, white pepper, red pepper and granulated garlic.
1-1/2 pound pizza dough
8 ounces slightly melted butter
3 ounces grated Romano cheese
1 tablespoon finely chopped Italian parsley
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 tablespoons granulated garlic
Flour pizza dough, and spread to an 8-inch high by 12-inch wide rectangle.
With a pizza cutter, cut in half lengthwise and widthwise. Then, cut each quarter in half widthwise. Cut each square into thirds (They should be 1-inch strips).
Take each strip and loop once to make a knot.
Place strips on a lightly oiled cookie sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and allow proofing for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 475 degrees.
Bake knots for 8 minutes or until slightly browned. Let cool for 5 minutes.
Combine remaining ingredients, and toss with cooled knots.
