Another Tasty.com 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!

How to Make Cheesy Garlic Knot White Pizza Dip

Step-by-Step

  1. Another recipe that just wouldn't pinch. So, the Pinterest address is: pinterest.com/pin/554857616570473476 Follow this link, then click on the picture to go to the Facebook video.
  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.
