I have an appetizer recipe that is going to make you the most popular friend in your group. 😉 Honestly, who doesn’t love pizza? Whether it is a classic slice of traditional cheese, or fully loaded for all my meat lovers, everyone has their favorite style. That’s why it is such a great food option on most occasions. Pizza is bound to make everyone happy. My recipe for Warm Pizza Dip is your next party appetizer that your guests will go wild over.
HOW DO I MAKE THE DIP?
Not only is Warm Pizza Dip super simple to make, but you can also have it hot and ready on your table in UNDER 30 minutes. Preheat your oven while you assemble your dish by coating with a nonstick spray. Mix the spices and cream cheese then spread as the base. Top with mozzarella cheese, pizza sauce, and more cheese! Finish it off with your favorite pizza toppings then bake.
WHAT TOPPINGS SHOULD I PUT ON THE DIP?
The best part about this dish is that it is incredibly versatile. Any style of pizza that is your favorite can live on top of this dip. For my kid friendly parties, I usually stick to pepperoni on top or just cheese. For all my adult events I like to get creative by putting sausage, mushrooms, green peppers, and olives on top. This appetizer is a crowd pleaser for every age group.
WHAT DO I SERVE WITH THE DIP?
Pair your dip with sides of tortilla chips or sliced baguette. I recommend serving with both to add some variety and texture to each bite. If you have some extra time to prepare for your party, try my recipe for The Best Pizza Dough. Bake the dough plain and then cut up into slices to serve as a delicious, deconstructed pizza.
