Pizza Dip

Yeah, yeah, yeah…fall is the season of baking. And soup. You know what else it is the season of? Dips. Hot dips. I don’t care about football (gasp). But I do care about dips.

The first time I made this dip, it literally disappeared within 5 minutes, and that was just with my family–like, 2 adults, 3 children. I guarantee you, if you make this dip, you will become everyone’s favorite person. You will win friends. You will influence people. This dip is the Giant Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies of dips.

  1. This looks delicious and good comparison to the giant oatmeal chocolate chip cookie, I have won over many people just on the basis of that cookie alone. 🙂

    Just an FYI, your pic at the top has pizza sauce but it isn’t listed in the ingredients at the top of the post. (However, it is listed in the recipe).

  2. How would this work in a crockpot? I have to bring a dip to a contest and want it to stay warm.

  3. This dip is amazing! I made it for New Years Eve and again the next day for another party and both times people LOVED it. It was very easy to prepare and delish with sliced baguette. It’s a keeper!
