These soft, garlicky knots taste just like your favorite pizzeria’s garlic knots, but made from scratch using my easy yeast-free bagel dough recipe (just flour, Greek yogurt, baking powder and salt).


  • olive oil spray
  • 1 cup all purpose or white whole wheat flour (see notes above for gluten-free)
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt (less for table salt)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup fat free Greek Yogurt, drained of any excess liquid (I like Fage)
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with a silicone liner or Silpat.
  2. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt and whisk well. Add the yogurt and mix with a spoon until incorporated. Then use your dry hands and knead about 15 times. If it’s too sticky you can add a little more flour. Roll into a ball.
  3. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces then roll each piece into worm like strips, about 9 inches long.
  4. Tie each breadstick into a “knot-like” ball; place on the prepared baking sheet. Spray the top with olive oil.
  5. Bake on the top third of the oven until golden about 18 minutes. Let them cool 5 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, in medium nonstick skillet melt the butter, add the garlic and cook until golden, 2 minutes.
  7. Toss the knots in the skillet with the melted butter and garlic or use a brush to cover the knots with the garlic.
  8. If the knots are too dry, give them another mist of olive oil. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and chopped parsley.

Air Fryer Method:

  1. Preheat the air fryer 325F degrees and set for 11 to 12 minutes. Cook in batches without overcrowding and bake 11 to 12 minutes, or until golden. No need to turn.
