This Pizza Dip is calling all the cheese lovers with its irresistible double-cheese layers.

Plus, this low-carb keto-friendly dip is also gluten-free, so everyone can dig in.

Pizza Dip

I am a pizza lover and when I don’t bake my almond flour pizza crust, I like making this pizza dip or a crustless pizza.

I love anything that taste like pizza, and this pizza dip the my last favorite recipe to share with family and friends on movie night.

What’s A Pizza Dip?

Pizza dip is a cheesy dip with all the pizza flavors: mozzarella, pizza sauce, pepperoni, and a layer of ultra-creamy cheesy cream cheese.

It’s an appetizer or side that can be served for a game night with bread, chips, or tortillas.

How To Make Pizza Dip

There’s one simple way to make cheesy pizza dip.

Ingredients

All you need are:

  • Cream Cheese – Softened at room temperature for a few minutes.
  • Sour Cream
  • Grated Mozzarella Cheese
  • Parmesan Cheese or another great cheese I tried is Provolone cheese.
  • Pizza Sauce – You can use my homemade pizza sauce, store-bought pizza sauce, or marinara sauce.
  • Dried Oregano or Italian seasoning for best flavors as it contains a mix of all the most common Italian herbs that bring out the pizza flavor of the dip.
  • Garlic Powder
  • Pepperoni Slices, black olive slices, or mushroom slices. Any of your favorite pizza toppings will work.
How to make Pizza Dip

Pizza Dip Layers

Start by selecting your favorite 8-inch oven-safe round baking dish.

It should we deep enough to fit the whole dip. An 8-inch skillet or pie plate round dish works fine.

In a bowl, add softened cream cheese sour cream, Italian seasoning, half mozzarella and half Parmesan or provolone.

Beat with an electric beater, or use a stand mixer and beat with the paddle attachment until smooth and creamy.

If you don’t have any of these kitchen appliances, you can use forks or a potato masher, but the mixture stays lumpy. It will melt in the oven, so it’s not a big issue.

Spread the cream cheese mixture into an even layer on the skillet, top with a layer of your favorite pizza sauce, and at the end, sprinkle the remaining cheese.

Topping The Dip

Finally, use your favorite pizza toppings.

I made a pepperoni pizza dip, so I only used pepperoni slices and a pinch of extra Italian seasoning.

But feel free to load this pizza dip recipe with more of your favorite pizza toppings like green peppers, ground meat, and jalapenos.

Vegetarian Pizza Dip Toppings

For a vegetarian pizza dip, try some of the below toppings:

  • Black Olives Slices,
  • Mushroom Slices
  • Diced Green Bell Pepper
  • Red Onion

Bake the dip at 350°F (180°C) for 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

The cream cheese layer should be bubbly, and if needed, extend the cooking time until the cheese is grilled.

To do so, feel free to switch the oven to broil mode, place the skillet to a higher level in the oven, and broil for a few extra minutes to broil the cheese on top.

Serving Pizza Dip

This pizza dip can be served with any bready food. Serve it warm, straight away from the oven, with some of the below foods to dip in.

Pizza Dip

Allergy Swaps

Below are some swaps to make this recipe allergy-friendly:

  • Dairy-Free – Dairy-free cream cheese, dairy-free sour cream, and vegan cheese will work too. If you are making a vegan pizza dip, top it with the vegetarian toppings listed above.
  • Low-Saturated Fat – Feel free to use reduced-fat mozzarella, Parmesan, and cream cheese to decrease saturated fat in the recipe.

Storage Instructions

You can store the pizza dip leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. The top cheese layer will harden like in any pizza stored in the fridge.

But when you rewarm the dip in the microwave or oven the cheese melt and get creamy again.
