⅓cupfresh parmesan cheesegrated
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, heat the butter and garlic under medium heat until melted and sizzling, about 2 minutes. Be sure not to burn butter. Turn heat down if it begins to burn. Add fresh herbs and saute for another 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Take off the heat and set aside.
Roll out pizza dough until it's a 14 x 8 rectangle. (If you're using Pillsbury, it's already in a rectangle and you can just stretch dough out with your hands)
Using a pastry brush, brush dough with the butter mixture. Cut dough into 8 strips with a pizza cutter. Roll each strip of dough into a rope, then tie the dough in a knot. Set knots on parchment paper. Add any more butter to any parts of the knot not coated. Top with parmesan cheese.
Bake for 7-10 minutes or until dough is lightly browned. Remove from the oven, top with parsley, and serve with a side of meatballs and/or marinara sauce.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator and reheat in the oven at 350˚ F for 7-8 minutes.
