What’s better than pizza? A cheesy, saucy pizza dip with all of the toppings! After making our now famous pizza sandwich casserole (and not to mention those baked potato pizzas or pizza casserole recipe) I knew we should add another delicious pizza-inspired recipe to our collection.
Pizza Dip Recipe
This pizza dip recipe is everything you want in a delicious deep-dish pizza, without the crust.
On the bottom, a thick layer of triple-cheese decadence topped with a layer of Italian-style tomato sauce, finished off with even more cheese and your favorite pizza toppings.
Serve this pizza dip with your favorite dip-ables (nachos, bread sticks, toast corners, vegetables, pretzels, etc). It’s the perfect easy appetizer for guests – although if you’re serving it with vegetables, I wouldn’t hesitate to call it a Friday night meal!
It would be great at a party or a potluck – although ensure that you can serve it hot – that’s when the cheese is at it’s ooey-gooeist!
Maybe you can even use this pizza dip as the dipping sauce for these pizza puffs. Yum!
