Garlic Knots

Today I am making pizza for dinner. I am taking the easy way out by using pre-made pizza dough and sauce from Trader Joe's. Please don't judge me: I've been on my feet all day, cooking for a living. I can say that the pizza dough from Trader Joe's is the best pre-made dough I've tried to date, so this is what I use when my family wants pizza.
