3 Pizza-Inspired Dips

Created March 1, 2017
3 Pizza-Inspired Dips
Game day is coming, so get ready with 3 easy pizza-inspired dips for fans everywhere.

Pizza flavor goes crustless so you can dip away.

Forget the pizza crust! You won’t need it when you whip up these delicious pizza dips.

One basic cream-cheese base, three different pizza-inspired toppings – and you've got your party in the bag.


The Basic Base

All three of these pizza-inspired dips start with the same base layering. What differentiates them are the toppings – so choose your fave and go!


Start with softened cream cheese + pizza sauce (or diced Italian tomatoes if you’re making  the Margherita Pizza Dip).  

Blend them together and spread it in the bottom of a baking dish. (Tip: For lump-free dip, make sure the cream cheese is super soft before blending it with the sauce or tomatoes!)


Top the base layer with a layer of marinara sauce.


A little cheese goes on top.

Add one of the toppings below, then bake and serve immediately!


1. Margherita Pizza Dip

Made with fresh Italian tomatoes, topped with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil, this dip is a fun take on the favorite pizza.


2. Extreme Meat Pizza Dip

For pepperoni, sausage and ham lovers! You don’t have to pick a favorite topping with this pizza dip – just toss ‘em all on top and enjoy the most extreme, meatiest dip ever.


3. Hawaiian Pizza Dip

Go aloha by tossing tropical picks on this dip. Fresh pineapple, ham, sweet onions and a green pepper make for a scrumptiously refreshing pizza dip!
