Pizza Dip

Pizza Dip

Follow Me on Pinterest

Over the last while I have slowly been trying to free up some space in my freezer and I recently came across some pizza sauce that I had left over after making a pizza a while back. As soon as I stumbled upon it I remembered thinking that I had wanted to use it to make a hot cheesy pizza dip when I put it in the freezer. Once I had that thought there was no turning back and I was already dreaming up recipes for the dip.

At first I was just going to follow my standard hot cheese dip template where I just mix everything up, pour it into a dish and bake it until the cheese is melted, golden brown and bubbling but then I had another idea. I wanted to top the dip with slices of pepperoni but my normal dip baking dish is small and it would only allow for about three slices of pepperoni to go on top so I needed something bigger, like a pie plate. Now we were talking about something that is looking more and more like a pizza so why not make it more like a pizza with a cheese layer on the bottom that is covered with a layer of pizza sauce that is topped just like a regular pizza?

Since this pizza dip is in the form of a pizza, you could top it with any of your favourite pizza toppings. For my first pizza dip I decided to go with some classics in the form of pepperoni, green pepper and olives. I had also planned on some sauteed sliced mushrooms but I completely forgot to pick them up when I went grocery shopping. Even without the mushrooms, this pizza dip was so addictively good and it disappeared far too quickly! I served the hot cheesy pizza dip with toasted, garlic rubbed baguette slices which made perfect beds for large spoonfuls of melted, gooey, cheesy pizza goodness. I can't wait to experiment with other versions of this dip using other pizza topping combinations!

Mmmm! I have never heard of pizza dip before---that look delicious! The pepperoni on top i my favorite part.

Brandi said...

Oh my goodness, I'm drooling! This looks so delicious! Can't wait to try it!

Bee said...

Ooh, I'm a big fan of cheesy dips. My favorite quick dip for when friends come over is taking a can of chili, mixing it with a block of cream cheese, then mixing and topping with a handful of whatever shredded cheese is in the fridge. THIS, however, is a work of art, and looks absolutely divine. Well done!

Esi said...

I want a whole pan full of this.

Tara L. Jensen said...

First, the dip looks awesome and will definitely be on the menu for my son's 11th birthday party. Second, you should use those MINI pepperoni. They would be perfect for this dip! They're tiny round a little larger in diameter than a pencil eraser. Just a thought!

Carol said...

You just have the best dip recipes ever! I always come here when I'm throwing a party!. I will just have to have a party soon to try this one too!

d.liff @ yelleBELLYboo said...

This looks awesome - I want to bring it to the next party I'm going to! I think it would be great to dip pretzels in!

Miss Tasha said...

Would I be able to leave out the mayo? Could it be replaced with maybe greek yogurt or a lowfat salad dressing?

Lisa @ Flour Me With Love said...

This looks to die for! I will be making it this weekend...thank you!

oh wow, this looks great! i would love this because i pretty much love all things pizza. i tried your beer battered fish the other day, it turned out super well too! i used it for onion rings as well, so yummy!

Sara @ Saucy Dipper said...

I made a pizza dip recently... in a Crockpot. So good! Someone gave me the idea to put the leftovers over penne pasta. Glad they did. I highly recommend it.

Lemons and Lavender said...

Why waste time with crust when you can go directly to the best part of the pizza? This dip could very well be my breakfast today!

Lemons and Lavender said...

Why bother with a crust when you can go right to the best part of the pizza - the cheese and toppings! This may be my breakfast today!

YUMMY! Oh my Goodness! It looks so yummy!

As soon as I saw this dip, I just knew that I have to make it! It looks incredible.

Cakebrain said...

oh, I do love pizza and I do love dip! What a concept! It looks so ooey gooey delicious!

Kevin said...

Miss Tasha: Yes you could leave out the mayo and replace it with more sour cream or Greek yogurt. I had not thought of a salad dressing but that could work as well.

Tara L. Jensen: I like the sound of the mini pepperoni!

It was delish! Thanks for a new favorite that I can also take with me when I'm asked to bring something yummy!

Question .. Do I rub the baguette slices with the garlic clove before or after I toast them? Also do you brush them with olive oil before you put them in the oven to toast? Thanks ! Cher

smoke20 said...

Made this Saturday night - loved it!

Kevin said...

Anonymous: For the toasted garlic rubbed baguette slices: Brush the baguette slices with olive oil, toast them and then rub them with the garlic.

Caroline said...

Made it mid-way through a bbq last night with cheddar instead of parmesan, olive cream cheese, and creme fraiche for the soured cream, topped with red pepper, ham and salami. Dash of hot sauce for the braver folks ;)

People liked it so much that started using it top their burgers!

Kelsey said...

This turned out AWESOME!! Made it today for some friends and it went over wonderfully. I'll post a link to pictures later!

aimeeeez said...

I took this to a party last night and it was totally gone before I even got to try it, so I'm going to assume that it was awesome! Thanks for the great recipe!

Lisa Fountain said...

So, I'm a complete microwave idiot - because I don't have one at home. But all I have at work is a microwave, and this looks like something my students would LOVE at a party. Do you think I could make this in the microwave - since I don't have access to an oven at my office? Thanks for the idea -- it looks sinfully delicious!

Kevin said...

Lisa Fountain: I do not use my microwave all that often but it should work, though it may not look as good as the pepperoni and cheese definitely benefits from that upper heat element in the oven.

JuLY '11 said...

aLtho i'm sure it's good... i have a hard time taking anyone seriously - when they say they have LEFTOVER pizza.

Aimee said...

Just came across your blog. Great find!! I can't wait to try the artichoke bread, although all of the recipes look amazing and I'm sure I'll be trying them all at some point!!

dara said...

saw this on Pinterest and HAD to try this reicpe. It just looks soo yummy! I think I will do a half and half for my husband and I and I will try some of the mushrooms like you were talking about. Thanks for sharing. Can't read to more of your blog!

Hey there. I'm giving you props on my blog today. I tried this last night with me family and it is awesomesauce. Thanks for sharing it!

thomas said...

I love this idea. I'm hosting a tailgate and watch party for the UT, BYU game and I'm desperately searching for recipes--this one is perfect!

Allison said...

If I make this in a 9x13, would I be safe just doubling all the ingredients?

Also, I'm just beginning to be a "from scratch/better ingredients" cook. When you say grated mozz and parm, this means I need to buy a block of each and grate it? Or can I use the shredded mozz and grate the parm? I'm cooking for a large group that will not be able to tell the difference. :)

Kevin said...

Allison: A 9x13 with a doubled recipe will work and more is better as this dip disappears quickly! :) Shredded mozzarella works just as well.

fite4truth said...

Made it, the family loved and it was so easy and quick, I also have a small kitchen. Thanks!

Holly P said...

Does this actually taste like pizza? My husband is very very picky and as soon as he saw sour cream, mayonnoise and cream cheese he was totally against it. Do I need these or can I do it without?

Laur1e said...

Wow! I made this twice this past weekend and it was a huge hit! Received a lot of compliments on this dish. It was gone very quickly! Thanks for sharing.

Laur1e said...

This was fantastic! Made it twice this weekend and everyone raved! Thanks for sharing a great recipe. I plan to make it several times in the near future with the holiday party season approaching. Everyone said it tasted like pizza. I used regular Prego sauce since that is what I had and it seemed to be perfect.

Jennifer @ Mother Thyme said...

Hi! I just wanted to thank you for sharing this recipe! I remember getting this in my email back in March and saved this in my recipe box. I finally tried it this past weekend and it is fabulous! I already made it twice. I did a write up about it on my blog if you want to check it out since everyone needs to try this! Thanks again for sharing another fabulous recipe!

I would like to try this for Xmas. How long can this dip be left out before it becomes too cold to dip bread?

Kevin said...

Anonymous: Of course the dip is best when it is still warm but if you are using something like toasted baguette slices you will be able to dip them into it for a long time. I like to serve the dip with a spoon on the side so that you can just scoop the dip and place it on your bread.

Cooking Rookie said...

Wow, what an amazing recipe! Pinned to my Favorite Food Blogs board!
I found your blog through friends who threw a yummy dinner party solely from your recipes. I think they pretty much religiously follow you. Now looks like I am joining the cult - it's a really amazing site!
The only other question is: are you still as thin as in that picture with all that cooking ;-)? And if yes, how do you do it? That would be the secret to happiness for me ;-)

Kevin said...

Cooking Rookie: Thanks! There is no secret really and it isn't easy with all of the food that I make; just lots of exercise. :) I walk home from work every day which takes about an hour. This year for the first time I was also jogging every other night while it was warmer out. I also try to balance all of the rich food that I eat, like this dip, with lots of steamed green veggies.

I found this recipe on Pinterest and am soooooooooooooo glad someone pinned it! I made it for my son's birthday party a few weeks ago and it was gone in seconds. I made a second one and we all ate it as well! Thank you for this recipe. A new party dip for my family!

Joshlyn said...

So I didn't feel like making a real meal for dinner, so I made this dip. I was planning on using some random marinara sauce in my fridge, but when I went to use it, it had grown fuzz, oops. BUT I did have 1/2 a jar of roasted garlic alfredo in the fridge that was still good, so I used it, and the dip is still delicious.

This was amazing! It's now my favorite thing to take to a party! Yummo!!

This would be amazing with Italian sausage, too! And I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to add some St. Louis Provel cheese if I make it!

tamtamx said...

Yum!! What bread did you pair it with?

Rhiannon said...

I made this a few months ago. It was delicious! I pre-cooked the pepperoni slices because I was worried about it being too greasy. Not sure if there was much of a difference, though. I also used the mini-pepperoni's, and put some pepper rings on it for some heat. Turned out VERY awesome. Thanks for the recipe!

Tara said...

I know this seems basic, but I'd love some tips on how you do those fantastic crusty crostinis to go with dips like this

J & D Burke said...

I made this for the super bowl tonight and it was super!!!

Kevin said...

tamtamx: I like to serve this pizza dip with sliced baguette that I toast and rub with a bit of garlic.

Tara: I generally lightly brush the sliced baguette with a bit of olive oil and then place them under the broiler few a few seconds, though you have to watch them closely or they will burn. After I pull them out I rub them with cloves of garlic.

Jaz said...

i made this for a superbowl party earlier this week, and it was amazing! i used mini pepperonis so there would be more to go around and i also added pineapple chunks and topped it with chopped parsley and oregano :) next time i think i may experiment with using ricotta instead of cream cheese, and layering the pineapple chunks and mini pepperoni on the creamy cheese dip and on the top as well.

Kevin said...

Jaz: I am liking the sound of a "Hawaiian" pizza dip with pineapple and ham!

AmyLynn in the Attic said...

This looks & sounds YUMMY! I cant wait to make this recipe. But I have a question, I notice that:
1/2 cup mozzarella, grated
1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan), grated
is printed twice. Is that in error?
Thanks!
Amy

Kevin said...

AmyLynn in the Attic: The first pair of cheese in the recipe are used in the cream cheese base and the second is sprinkled on top of the pizza sauce layer.

Found your recipe on Pinterest. Had to try it. Only I did something a little different. . . I halved some jalapenos, scraped out the seeds and membranes, put a little pasta sauce in the pepper, then topped it with your cheese dip and laid a piece of pepperoni on top. Baked in the oven for 30 minutes. My teenage daughter said "I love you. You're amazing. This is the best thing I've ever eaten. My tummy is sooo happy right now." Thanks!

Little Z. said...

Since you're a dip kinda guy... my old neighbor makes an all-time faorite of mine. Take a package of Tennesee Pride (or store brand) mild Italian sausage and brown it in a pan. Add one and a half packages of cream cheese (12 oz total - she uses both packages, I find that a little too loose and creamy) and a can of Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilis; heat through and serve warm or cold with whatever dippers you feel like. Every time I make this dip, people ask me for the recipe. :)

This recipe looks awesome... But I can't help but wonder if you sprinkled a little spice on the top. Perhaps oregano??

I made this for NYE and it turned out amazing...I doubled the recipe, on top of the sauce I added quartered pepperonis, mushrooms on 1 side and black olives on the other...i also placed the mushrooms/black olives on the top so that people could distinguish which side was which...i didn't add the green peppers...but otherwise followed the recipe and it was a big hit, will definitely make again

I have made so many versions of this dip, but your version is the best, by far. I made a veg version, so I pumped up the flavor profile with some crushed red pepper and Italian seasoning. Perfect!

This was absolutely delicious! Now, if the Ravens win tonight, I'm going to consider it my good-luck dish and make it every time they play!

This was AaaaaaMaaaaaZiiiiinnnggg!!! I pinned it a year ago and just made it tonight. Could kick myself for waiting that long. Seriously yummy. I did just pepperoni this time (forgot the mushrooms when i went shopping) Next time ill try bacon n onions. Sooo good!!!

This isn't too bad for a low carb diet - I figured it out to be 12 grams of carbs per serving. Use the "Lighter Side's" recipe for cauliflower bread and it's great :)

Kevin, Can I prep this now and refrigerate it, then cook and serve tomorrow for Super Bowl party?
