Garlic bread is an awesome addition to many meals. A little while ago I made garlic knots, which are easy and spectacular. So why on earth would I be sitting here about to tell you about another type of garlic bread if I’ve already found an excellent one? Because I like to continue to try things just in case!

The difference about these garlic rolls? Not much, really, when considering the overall flavor. Instead of tossing post-oven as with the garlic knots, you bake the garlic rolls with the butter, garlic, and herbs already spread inside of them. The result might be a bit less moist and also not quite as soft, but the flavor is still excellent. Just depends on what kind of texture you’re going for!

These garlic rolls are extra cute because they remind me of cinnamon rolls in appearance. But obviously with green things inside instead of sugary sweetness. In fact a coworker mistook one that I brought for lunch the next day as a cinnamon roll until I started scooping up the leftover pasta sauce with it.

The thing that remains the same between the previous garlic knots and these garlic rolls is the use of pre-made dough, making these super easy to put together. But if you would like to go the extra mile and make the dough instead of purchasing it, feel free to make a batch of homemade pizza dough.

No matter how you make it, or which recipe you choose, these are the perfect side to your pasta night dinner. Especially the mozzarella stuffed “Chicken Parmeatballs” shown in these photos. Literally as if you made chicken parmesan in meatball form and yet somehow easier.

Yield: 12 Servings Prep Time: Cooking Time:
Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


  • 1 (13.8 oz.) container Pillsbury pizza crust dough
  • 5 Tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 Tbsp fresh minced oregano
  • 1/2 Tbsp fresh minced parsley


  1. Preheat oven at 375 degrees. Lightly coat a rimmed baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, blend together the butter, garlic, oregano, and parsley until combined.
  3. Roll out pizza dough and place on a lightly floured surface. If needed, roll the dough into a long rectangle about 9x13-inches and 1/4 inch thick, then evenly spread butter mixture along the entire surface of the dough.
  4. Take the long edge of your dough and roll it. When rolling, make sure to hold it firmly to get a tight and even roll. Continue rolling until you've reached the end of your dough. Using a sharp serrated knife, cut 1/2 inch thick rolls*.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.


*When cutting your dough, make sure not to press down, but to cut in quick gentle back and forth motions to get a clean cut.

[…] In more recent history of making these tasty delights (11 years later), I discovered that Pillsbury bread sticks are now damn near impossible to find. Thankfully, you can just buy the refrigerated pizza dough and cut it into 12 strips. Then just proceed as normal tying them into knots and coating in buttery herby garlic goodness. (Alternatively, you can roll them up into spiraled garlic rolls) […]
