This easy pizza dip recipe features layers of mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses, pizza sauce, and your favorite pizza toppings. Always a hit!
One of my favorite weeks of the year (aside from the week before Christmas) is the week before the Super Bowl. At no other point in time is it possible to find so many amazing appetizer and dip recipes. Right behind my love of desserts comes my love of appetizers, specifically dips.
Which means that on a day like Super Bowl Sunday, I am in a state of food nirvana. I love the excuse to try out new recipes and declare new favorites. This easy pizza dip is super simple and combines all of the crave-worthy flavors of a pizza without the need to toss dough, preheat a pizza stone, or bust out the pizza peel. An awesome compromise for the sake of dip.
Easy Pizza Dip!
This crazy delicious baked pepperoni pizza dip is made with cream cheese, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses, pizza sauce, and your favorite pizza toppings!
Bust out your favorite pie plate and slather the bottom with a layer of cream cheese, top that cream cheese with shredded mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Then add a layer of your favorite pizza sauce (I love DeLallo when doing store-bought, but I also have a favorite homemade pizza sauce, too), top with more shredded cheese, and then finish it off with your favorite pizza toppings.
I am definitely a purist when it comes to pizza – I am a pepperoni pizza girl pretty much 100% of the time, but I do love the combination of pepperoni, black olives and green pepper for a variety of flavors here. Feel free to switch it up though, whatever you like – mushrooms, sausage, bacon, veggies – possibilities are endless!
What do you serve with pizza dip? So many options!
Baguette slices (toasted or un-toasted)
Crusty chunks of bread
You could certainly serve this with other things, but I really like very lightly toasted baguette slices or chunks of crusty bread, like a country sourdough. They hold up well to the sauce and melted cheese, and they mimic a crust beautifully.
Happy pizza dipping, everyone! What would your ideal toppings be?
