Pizza Dip

Sharing is caring!

It’s really no big secret that I enjoy the comfort of my own home rather being the social butterfly. On occasion, my friend Brittani can get me out of the house to endure the rough terrain, with the promise of delicious food.

One of the gatherings that Brittani managed to drag me to was loaded with all kinds of fantastic snack foods. There happened to be a pizza dip in particular that had me repeatedly heading back to the appetizer table. It was everything that I love about pizza, from the ooey, gooey cheesiness to the rich sauce and delectable pizza toppings. The minute I ate it, I knew I needed to figure out how to create a pizza dip recipe at home.

After playing around a bit, I came to realize that this pizza dip is not only delicious, but incredibly easy! Serve this pizza dip with a French baguette and it will be the perfect addition to any Super Bowl party.

This dip starts out with a rich cream cheese base and is then covered in zesty pizza sauce. After the addition of pepperoni, bell peppers, onions, black olives, and most importantly, cheese, this dip will be the hit of the party! Not a fan of the toppings in the recipe? Simply substitute your favorite toppings and personalize this pizza dip recipe to to fit your tastes.

Pizza Dip


8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon dried parsley
¼ teaspoon dried basil
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup pizza sauce
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 ounces sliced pepperoni
2 tablespoons sliced black olives, sliced


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, garlic powder, dried

oregano, parsley and basil.

2. Spread cream cheese mixture into a 9-inch pie pan, and sprinkle ½ cup of mozzarella and ½

cup of Parmesan on the cream cheese mixture.

3. Top with the pizza sauce and sprinkle the remaining cheeses over the pizza sauce.

4. Top with bell pepper, onion, pepperoni and black olives.

5. Bake in preheated oven 20 minutes or until cheese is fully melted and bubbly.


- If you are short on time, you can cover your microwave safe dish and place into the microwave

for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and heated through.
- I sprinkle a little Italian seasoning on top of my cheese and toppings for an added kick.

I have made this dip so many times, I have lost count. It is so good and there are never any leftovers. This is one of the dips my coworkers request for their birthday 'spread'. I eat low carb so I make my own pizza sauce to cut down on sugars. I serve with crostini for most people and parmesan crisps for the low carb peeps. I bake in the morning before work and we reheat throughout the day in the microwave as we graze. :) But, just like pizza it is also good room temp or even cold. You will not be disappointed! Thanks for the recipe Jamie, I should have thanked you years ago!

Can't wait to try this! I think I will use ricotta cheese instead of cream cheese though to keep it really Italian.
