Los Angeles Times Cooking's Milo & Olive Garlic Knots are a savory recipe with an old world feel. Milo & Olive is a Santa Monica-based bakery and pizzeria founded by husband and wife duo Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan. The eatery specializes in "seasonal, market-driven cuisine—a reflection of the best ingredients available from local farmers and vendors with sustainable practices."
Adapting Zoe Nathan's recipe, Los Angeles Times food writer Amy Scattergood breaks down an at-home recipe for Milo & Olive Garlic Knots that spotlights basic pizza dough as its key ingredient. The pizza dough can be homemade or store-bought and should be combined with a generous amount of garlic oil.
This restaurant-inspired recipe speaks to growing consumer desires for artisan meals and appetizers that can be recreated at home -- especially as many continue to social distance during the COVID-19 pandemic. These tasty garlic knots can be enjoyed alone or as a side dish and are recommended to be enjoyed with tomato sauce.
