Originally, I made these as plain pizza muffins, which were cute in shape, but boring in taste. Turning the pizza base into a garlic knot turns up the fun and flavor! If you’re not a huge garlic fan, just use a little less of the mixture in the dough, but don’t leave it out – it’s what makes these muffins extra delicious!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine garlic, parsley, parmesan, and olive oil for the garlic mixture in a small bowl and set aside.
Spray 12 muffin cups well with cooking spray. Divide the pizza dough into 12 portions (if using frozen dough, allow it to come to room temperature to make it easier to work with).
Take each portion and flatten into a circle, then spoon some of the garlic mixture into the dough. Fold the dough in half, then press down into the muffin tin. Repeat with all 12 pieces of dough
Spoon pizza sauce over the tops of all the muffins and cover with shredded cheese.
Bake until the dough is browned and baked through, about 30 minutes.
After eating Parmesan cheese one must wait six hours before eating meat. See more on this, including a list of all hard cheeses that require waiting, here.
