Best Dippers!

This fun and delish dip is best served with homemade cheesy breadsticks, pizza dippers, or use crostini toasts, crackers, or tortilla chips. Make a low-carb dish and use cucumber or zucchini rounds, carrot and celery sticks. 

Tips For Success

  • Use cream cheese at room temperature so it makes mixing fast and easy!
  • A hand mixer will aerate the dip, making it light and fluffy!
  • Put extra pepperoni on top and then place the dip under the broiler so it gets extra crispy!
  • Keep leftover cheesy pizza dip in a covered container and reheat it in the microwave before serving.
  • For a fun way to serve pizza dip, cut a baguette in half lengthwise and scoop out some of the bread. Scoop pizza dip in the center, top with fresh cheese, and heat in the broiler. Cut into 3” slices and serve!
