This party snack will disappear in moments! Spicy dough knots are fantastic on their own, but can be enhanced (and tamed) with sweet onion dip!

My friend Susie D recommended these to me and it just so happened I was making French Dinner Rolls recipe #421108 so I thought why not! I saved enough dough to make 9 good sized knots and I used Franks Red Hot Wings- Hot Buffalo Sauce. I'm sorry I didn't make the dip but I was thinking ranch would be a good dipper too. At first my DS and I were tentative, then we wanted just 1 more, then I caught him pulling one apart as he walked through the kitchen... lol they are addicting! Thanks for sharing a fun recipe. I was thinking pretzel dough that has gone through the water bath (they dry quickly) and then brushed with the sauce might be worth a try too.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb store-bought refrigerated pizza dough (usually in the deli section)
  • 12 cup buffalo wing sauce
  • 14 cup brown sugar
  • 12 cup sweet onion, dressing
  • 34 cup sour cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Roll the pizza dough out on a floured work surface. Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut strips of dough that are approximate ¾ inch wide and 4 inches long.
  3. With your hands, roll each strip on the floured surface until it’s about 6 inches long. Then quickly tie into a loose knot. Place on a baking sheet and repeat with the rest of the dough.
  4. Mix ½ cup of Hot Wing Sauce with ¼ cup of brown sugar. Brush the mixture over the dough knots, covering them completely. Bake for 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, mix the Sweet Onion Dressing with ¾ cup sour cream.
  6. Serve the Hot Knots warm with the Sweet Onion Dip on the side!
