You might think there is some big story behind this recipe, but in fact, the recipe creation of air fryer Parmesan dusted garlic knots was one more of necessity than anything else.
My youngest as you all know has severe food allergies and some local pizzerias use latex gloves to prepare the dough.
Any latex contact on food or elsewhere for my son can prove deadly.
Therefore, I have taken the worry out of one of his favorite eats by creating this recipe at home in minutes.
The air fryer is one of the best appliances due to its versatility, frying or baking fast.
It’s revolutionizing food preparation.
To keep this recipe fast, and simple, I chose easy-to-find ingredients.
There are no additives in them, just plain, simple and fresh!

Use air fryer garlic knots as a side to soup, salad and bread night!
Truly easy and tasty!
Easy To Make Air Fryer Parmesan Dusted Garlic Knots
Gather your ingredients, and get yourself all organized, because once you start air frying you don’t want to stop to create these knots.
Also, your fingers will be oily and you don’t want to drop a platter.
Get ready to fend everyone off, the smell wafting through the air is magnificent, you’d swear you are at a pizzeria.
I suggest doubling the batch right from the beginning because I know for a fact that these will disappear before your very eyes!
Ready? Did I mention these are economical to make?
I remember trying to make these pre-air fryer days!
The bonus is that these are so much less of a splurge than those pizza shop garlic knots that run $2.50 or more apiece!
Plus, none of them deliver that taste you are craving anyway!
The Air Fryer
You can use any air fryer you want, timing may change, but always shoot for less time and adjust up.
There’s nothing worse than the smell of air fried food that is burned.
NO need to explain how I know that little tidbit of information!
Let’s just call it the school of hard knocks or hard dough balls!
There are so many options for air fryers, use the brand you like.
Make sure to check out a few different brands before you purchase.
I say bigger is better (IMO) and I love square more than round baskets, but really just a preference.
Lastly, don’t buy a really cheap air fryer (Under $50), it will smell and taste funny.
Invest in a good brand because it will last a bit longer.
I have cooked through 3 of these already.
The cords overheat or are not long enough, and some of the bases can get warm, etc.
Which leads me to an additional point:
Do not place on your stovetop.
If you have to, use a heat-resistant cutting board.
The bases get very, very warm.
Don’t load the air fryer basket with oil either!
Also, food tastes bad in some of these even if you bake it off ahead of time (the air fryer).
You don’t want the awful flavor that can come with air fryers. We suffered through that for you already (eye roll).
The biggest Thing About Air Frying That EVERYONE messes UP!
Always, preheat your air fryer.
Did you think it was going to be life-shattering information?
Trust me, preheat, and love! Don’t preheat and food will not cook properly.
I should know, I’ve created over 270 air fryer recipes for a large kitchen appliance company!
One thing I learned is preheating is a must!
Any brand of the below-listed products will do.
It’s whatever you have in the house or in your local grocery store.
Trust me, I have tried multiple brands, but I do use one brand to keep the flavor consistent.
This is simple and really won’t be messed up no matter what you do!
SPLURGE on Your Olive Oil
If I might make ONE suggestion it is Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
The consistency just tastes better because the light is more for things that don’t matter.
You want the flavor on this! Pour it on, and dunk those little chunks of dough!
Refrigerated Pizza Crust is the star of the show and so easy to work with!
Stock up when you find it on sale.
I always use Extra Virgin, it makes a difference in taste.
Minced Garlic because it’s easy to add-in and adds a punch of flavor.
Tips For Cooking This Recipe
I do highly suggest preparing your ingredients ahead of time.
Tie all the knots before you ever start the air fryer as the procedure will move quickly.
Do dust the knots at the end with a very good Parmesan and allow it to seep into the warm knots.
Serve warm, and chill those that are unused (if there are any)

Place all on a plate
Transfer Balls 12 at a time to Air Fryer [mv_img id="48104"]
Program Fryer for 400° for 4 minutes (please note, the more batches you create the less time each batch will need, so you
