These buttery, garlicky nuggets of bread taste just as good as the pizzeria variety, and making them is almost easier than calling for delivery. Just toss bits of dough in cheesy garlic butter and dump them in a bundt pan. The resulting bowl is made of chunks of bite-size bread, with each piece perfectly crusty on the outside and soft on the inside.

Fill it up with tomato sauce for convenient dipping, and enjoy the fact that there’s no delivery man to judge you for ordering knots as an appetizer for that entire pie you're obviously eating solo.

Ours lasted maybe two seconds.
