What’s in Pizza Dip?

One of my favorite things about this easy pizza dip is that it requires minimal ingredients. Most of them you probably already have handy.  The base of this dip is cream cheese mixed with your favorite pizza toppings and of course, more cheese!

Ingredients

Pizza Dip ingredients - cream cheese, pizza cheese, pasta sauce, pepperoni, seasoning
  • Cream Cheese
  • Shredded Pizza Cheese
  • Jar of your Favorite Pasta Sauce or Marinara Sauce
  • Pepperoni (or another favorite pizza topping)
  • Italian Seasoning and Garlic Powder (Optional)

Variation Ideas

This pizza dip is so versatile! You can make multiple different versions of this dip for a pizza dip bar or for picky eaters.

  • Toppings – My kids love this dip just topped with pepperoni. But you can definitely add crumbled Italian sausage, black olives, mushrooms, and your other favorite pizza toppings can go into this cream cheese dip base as well.
  • Sauce – If you prefer, you can skip the store bought pasta sauces and create your own. I would suggest using a large can of crushed tomatoes and seasoning it with a little bit of garlic and oregano or Italian seasoning. For a more authentic homemade marinara, stir in a tablespoon of olive oil and about 1/3- ½ cup of grated Parmesan or Romano cheese.
  • Cheese – Feel free to use different types of cheese. You can substitute a cup mozzarella or a combination of shredded mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese.

Recipe Tips

  • Make Ahead – If you’re preparing this dip ahead of time for a party, you can prepare, cover and then place in the fridge. Just remember to bring it back to room temperature before baking.
  • Cooking Time – Baking time will vary, make sure to check to make sure the dip is cooked and golden brown before removing.
  • Softened Cream Cheese – Before spreading the cream cheese mixture, make sure the cream has softened. This makes it easy to spread smooth and creamy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Make in the Crockpot?

We normally make this dip in the oven in a glass pie pan, and then we like to keep it warm in a mini dipper crockpot. Truthfully, I can’t get enough of my mini crockpot! It keeps the dip warm and smooth on the warm setting.
But, you can skip the oven altogether and make crockpot pizza dip in the crockpot! Simply put all of the ingredients in the crockpot and cook on high for 1 hour. Once everything is melted and combined, turn crockpot to low and serve when you’re ready!

How to Store Leftovers

This is best served fresh, but if you have leftovers place in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Store in the fridge until ready to serve again.

How to Reheat

Reheat the leftovers in the microwave or on the stove top depending on how much you have leftover.
