Pumpkin Pie Spice:

  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon allspice


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened
  • 1 stick salted butter softened
  • 1 recipe Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
  • kosher salt


  • While dough is rising on the counter, preheat oven to 375 degree and make the pumpkin pie spice.
  • In a medium bowl, combine 1-1/2 tablespoons of the pumpkin pie and 1/2 cup sugar. Add in both sticks of softened butter and blend until thoroughly combined. Store the extra pumpkin spice for another use.
  • Punch down risen dough. On a floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll out a large rectangle. Spread half of the pumpkin spice butter on half of the dough in a thin even layer. Fold the other half over top of the butter side. Use a pizza cutter and divide the dough in half. Cut each half into 8 or 9 strips.
  • Tie each strip into a knot, tucking the ends behind the knot and place on a parchment or silicon lined sheet pan. Repeat with remaining strips.
  • Bake knots in preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until light golden brown in color. Mean while melt the remaining spiced butter in a small saucepan over low heat until melted.
  • Generously brush freshly baked knots with melted butter using a pastry brush. Serve warm and enjoy!
