My son is a high school senior this year and when I look at him I think,”Man, when did this kid grow into a mini adult?”  That’s him in the red shirt with the red mouth guard. I started asking myself that around the time my son started playing high school Rugby last fall. He went from a slender teen to an athletic little man. After joining the team he started working out and really took pride in being part of this new brotherhood. He took pride in his team and we took pride in him.

With him being on the team, pre-game dinner and side line cheers quickly became part of our Friday night tradition. Making sure the family was fueled up before each game became something I looked forward to each week. On the days when I’d ask my son what he wanted to eat, he always wanted his fast food favorite, pizza and Mozzarella Stuffed Garlic Knots.

He’s not playing on the team this year, but he still loves playing Rugby in his free time and still enjoys pizza and Mozzarella Stuffed Garlic Knots. To pull this meal together in 30 minutes or less, I use pre-made dough for the garlic knots and Tony’s® Pizzeria Style Cheese Pizza. Tony’s pizza has a light, crispy, crunchy crust topped with sauce made from real tomatoes and covered in 100% real mozzarella cheese. It’s a relatively budget friendly option that’s an even better buy paired with the $1/2 off Tony’s Pizza ibotta rebate.

For my family of five I use two Tony’s® Pizzeria Style Cheese Pizza’s and make ten Mozzarella Stuffed Garlic Knots. The pizza and garlic knots take about the same time to cook and taste delicious together. The whole dinner takes about 30 minutes to make start to finish. It’s such a great recipe and perfect for game nights.

Mozzarella Stuffed Garlic Knots

Cook time: 15-20 minutes       Serves: 4-6      Serving Size: 1-2 garlic knots


13 oz. can of  pizza crust
3/4 pound mozzarella, shredded
2 tablespoons Parmesan & Romano cheese, grated
3 tablespoons salted butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup of fresh parsley, chopped

Mozzarella Stuffed Garlic Knots


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.2. Unroll the pizza dough and cut into 10 equal portions. Press down the center of each pizza dough strip to create a well for the cheese.

3. Sprinkle some mozzarella cheese down the center length of each strip. To seal, pinch the edges together to form a mozzarella filled roll. Repeat the process with each strip and then mold each strip into a knot.

4. Bake the knots for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

5. Now combine the butter, garlic, parsley, Parmesan & Romano cheese in a pan and saute on medium high until the butter is melted.

6. Once the knots are done, toss in the pan mixture and serve while hot.

  3. These would not last long in my house. My family (and I) would gobble them up. Love all that cheese.

  4. You had me at the cheese! Your mozzarella stuffed garlic knots looks and sound like a perfect appetizer! Yummers!

  5. Now this is my kind of side! I’m definitely ready for a pizza night with some of these garlic knots.

  6. That looks truly mouthwatering. I would be tempted to not share with the family! lol. But I would. They would hunt down the smell and demand some Tony’s Pizza and garlic knots for themselves. #client

    1. As soon as my son came in from school he said, “It smells so good in here”. I wanted to keep it all to myself. Ha!

  7. Well now you had me at Garlic. I am willing to bet these garlic knots are delicious. I am going to have to give them a try. I bet they would pair well with spaghetti too.

    1. Spaghetti is another weeknight favorite of ours too. What do you like as a side with your pizza?

  8. Oh my lanta, the pizza and garlic knots look amazing! I love this pregame meal idea. It is so yummy looking.

  9. Oh this has my mouth watering. Feel free to send some my way 🙂 They sound So good!

    1. They take a little time to stuff but you could always cheat and roll the dough and cheese together. I’m sending some virtually.

  10. The garlic knots sound amazing. I’m sure I’d have to triple the recipe to satisfy my kids!

    1. The one batch definitely doesn’t make enough for seconds, but these things are really big. Almost the size of a doughnut.
