This Easy Pizza Knots Recipe makes the perfect finger-food appetizer for your next party or movie night with the family. It is so quick to put together and makes enough to share.
When I made this Easy Pizza Knots Recipe, I had two places that I needed to take them. These were two very different events but one thing they had in common was that not a one was left by the time we left and everyone loved them. I loved how quick and easy they were.
John and I were eating at one of our favorite pizza places one Saturday for lunch, and besides the pizza pies they were making, I noticed that they were cutting the dough and putting them in mini pans. I couldn’t exactly see what they were doing, but it made me think of the pizza twists and breadsticks that I’ve seen served with marinara.
It wasn’t long before we were invited to a couple of different events on the same day and that I needed to take something to share. I knew one event would have children present and the other was adult only. I also wanted something that could set out and be delicious whether warm or cold.
Remembering the pizza lunch I decided to try knots. They are a perfect finger-food and I served them with jarred pizza sauce that I put in our hosts’ microwave for just a minute. I kept them simple by just flavoring them with Italian herb seasoning and parmesan cheese.
Don’t have time to make them now? Pin it for later!

I got way to much credit for these Pizza Knots. I was credited for taking homemade pizza knots when I’d used store-bought pizza dough. Believe me, everyone went to a lot more work than I did! These little knots would be perfect with a cheese dip or fondue too!
Here are a couple other great recipes perfect for a party.
