Cheesy Garlic Knot White Pizza Dip

Another recipe from Facebook. Love these recipes! As usual, the Pinterest link is included in the instructions. I took this one to friends' for their Tree-Trimming Party and it was a BIG hit. The mother found that if you break a knot out with the fork, stab it, you can pull it into the cheese mix, twist it around and have a well-coated appetizer. Worked wonderfully and no burnt fingers!

  • 1

  • 2
    Divide pizza dough into 12-14 equal sized balls. With floured hands, roll the dough balls into logs and tie into individual knots, tucking the excess underneath.
  • 3
    Coat a 10" oven-safe skillet with olive oil. Place the knots in a ring around the skillet. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes, allowing dough to reach room temperature.
  • 4
    In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, mozzarella, parmesan, ricotta, basil, 1/2 of the garlic, and red pepper flakes.
  • 5
    Melt the butter and add the parsley and remaining garlic. Stir well.
  • 6
    Uncover the knots and scoop the dip into the center of the skillet. Brush the knots with the butter/garlic mixture (reserving some for after baking), and top the dip with an additional sprinkle of cheese (optional).
  • 7
    Bake in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C) for 20 minutes. Broil for two additional minutes or until knots and cheese get lightly browned - watching closely so as not to burn it. Remove from oven and brush lightly with the reserved garlic butter. Let cool slightly before serving.
