Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Step 2

Put pizza dough on cookie sheet or cutting board or whatever

Step 3

Sprinkle flour over dough to allow for easier handling

Step 4

Cut mound of pizza dough in 8 slices using a bread cutting knife (knife with jagged edges seems to work best)

Step 5

Take each slice of the dough, roll in your hands to make a long string like piece with the slice of dough

Step 6

Tie the dough like string in a loose knot

Step 7

Fold the end pieces over to create a round knot like shape

Step 8

Grease a 9" x 13" pan

Step 9

Please each 'dough knot' in the pan so you have 4 across, 2 down - be sure to leave good amount of room around edges of pan and ensure each knot touches the one next one, including the two rows

Step 10

Put pan with pizza knots in oven and bake for 12 minutes - be sure the tops are golden and pizza dough cooked throughout

Step 11

Take out of oven, let cool a little bit and turn oven down to 350 degrees

Step 12

With a large bread knife, slice the tops of the pizza dough knots horizontally

Step 13

Take the pizza dough top off, being very careful not to separate the individual dough knots and place aside

Step 14

Layer the following: ham over the bottom pizza dough, pizza sauce, pepperoni, and then generously apply the cheese

Step 15

Place the top pizza dough knots back on top (if some of the knots broke off, don't worry too much. The melted cheese will meld them together again!)

Step 16

Melt butter in bowl, insert oregano, basil leaves and garlic in butter (good idea to cut them into smaller pieces) and mix together

Step 17

With a food brush, dip into the above mixture and brush over top of pizza knots

Step 18

Put back into over and bake for 10 minutes more

Step 19

Serve and let family/friends or just you!!! rip apart the sliders and do enjoy :)
