Pizza Dip Ingredients:
- cream cheese
- sour cream
- Parmesan cheese
- pizza sauce or crushed tomatoes
- black pepper
- mozzarella cheese
Tips for making the best Pizza Dip:
- You can use a store-bought pizza sauce in this recipe. I used crushed tomatoes because that's what I use on our pizza.
- The oregano (you can use Italian seasoning instead) and black pepper in cream cheese layer add great flavor too.
- I highly recommend using freshly grated mozzarella cheese for this dip. It will melt better.
- You can also add your favorite pizza toppings like sliced olives, peppers, cooked sausage, crispy bacon, etc. Just bake and dip!
Can I make Pizza Dip ahead of time?
You can make this dip can be made ahead and stored covered in the fridge. Just make sure to let it sit in room temperature for about 15 minutes before baking.
How to serve Pepperoni Pizza Dip?
This dip is best served with toasted baguette slices. You can, of course, serve it with chips but we found that it tastes the best with baguette.
