Ingredients

Units Scale

Instructions

  1. Start by making the Whole Wheat Pizza Dough and Spinach Pesto.
  2. Roll the pizza dough into a square, roughly 12×12 inches.
  3. Using a spatula, spread the pesto onto the dough, leaving about a 1/2 inch border around all sides.
  4. Evenly sprinkle the mozzarella over the pesto.
  5. Next, take the top half of the dough and fold down to meet the bottom. You are basically folding the dough in half here. (Check out the video for a play-by-play!)
  6. Then, using a knife or bench scraper, cut the dough horizontally into 6 sections. You should have 6 rectangles at this point.
  7. Now, take one of your rectangles and vertically cut two slits into the dough, keeping the top portion intact. Continue with remaining rectangles.
  8. Next it’s time to braid! Take one of your rectangles and fold the left dough portion over the middle section then repeat with the left side. Continue braiding until you reach the end of the dough. Then, pinch the bottom of the dough to seal. Now take the end you sealed and roll it up towards the other end. You will now have a braided pesto knot! Continue with the rest of the rectangles.
  9. Place the knots into a 9×9 baking dish and brush with a little olive oil.
  10. Place into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly and serve with marinara sauce. Enjoy!
