Pinterest Garlic Knots and Pepperoni Bites

The other day I decided to give a couple of my pinterest recipes a whirl and I would just like to say that the results were scrumptious.

First were these garlic knots. I used my standard dough recipe. Here it is for you for the bajillionth time:

1 tbsp. yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 tbsp oil
1/4 tsp. salt

Put yeast and sugar in bowl. Add water and stir with spoon. let sit for 10 minutes as yeast activates. Add flour, oil, and salt. Mix for 6 minutes on speed 1 on your kitchen aid. Let rise for 45 min.- 1 hour. 

 After the dough is done rising, roll out "snakes" one foot long and tie them in a knot.

 Top with butter, garlic, oregano, and parmesan cheese. Bake on 350 until they start to brown. yum!

Next up are the pizza bites. Use the same dough recipe as above. Roll out 3-4 inch circles. In the middle of your circle put a slice of pepperoni, a thick slice of cheese, and another pepperoni. Pinch up the sides over the toppings. Sorry I don't have pictures of this whole process. It's really easy- I promise!  

DON'T PUT SAUCE IN THESE- It will turn into a fat mess. You can dip them in a dipping sauce when they are finished cooking.

Bake at 350 until golden brown. Brush tops with garlic butter and oregano.
