Pizza Dip brings together everything you love about pizza – ooey gooey cheese, delicious sauce, and fabulous toppings!
Cheesy, warm, gooey pizza dip! There’s really not much more that I need to say, I’ll just let the pictures of this fabulous Pizza Dip do the talking:
Creamy cream cheese and a bit of sour cream get combined with freshly shredded mozzarella and parmesan cheeses, and a hint of Italian seasonings for the first layer of the dip. The pizza sauce of your choice comes next for the second layer, then comes more cheese. Finally, this masterpiece is topped with all of your favorite pizza toppings and baked until warm and bubbly.
Did I mention that this incredible Pizza Dip is so easy to make? There are so many things you could dip into this pizza dip – everything from crackers and veggies to pretzels and bread. We typically toast up a loaf of French bread to serve alongside this gooey dip and it’s just perfect!
Ready in 30 minutes, Pizza Dip is suited perfectly for parties and entertaining!
