Simple Pizza Dip Recipe

My husband had his department potluck yesterday, and brought my pizza dip.  He got so many requests for the recipe, I decided to post it.  Now is the season when we’re all asked to bring something to share to many gatherings!


1 pkg cream cheese
1 jar pizza sauce – 14 oz.**
Mozzarella cheese – enough to cover the sauce two times (we buy it in bulk, so I really don’t know how much I used)
1 pkg mini pepperoni – 5 oz.
Oregano or Italian seasoning
Bread or crackers for dipping

The pizza dip is basically two layers of the first four ingredients.

  1. Cut half of the the cream cheese into small pieces and place in bottom of small casserole dish (or small crock pot).
  2. Cover with half of the pizza/spaghetti sauce.
  3. Sprinkle half of the mozzarella (in pizza-style) over the sauce (enough to cover it).  
  4. Scatter the pepperoni bites over the top so it looks like pizza.
  5. Repeat – with second half of everything.
  6. Sprinkle top with oregano or Italian seasoning.
  7. Bake in 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes, until heated through (or heat up in crock pot–works well for a potluck!)
  8. Serve with bread or crackers.
* I doubled this recipe for my 4 quart crock pot to serve a crowd.
**For the double recipe, I just used a 24 oz. jar of spaghetti sauce, rather than two pizza sauces.

    This sounds delicious! I don’t think I’ve ever had anything like it. We’ve been eating a lot of hummus lately.

    Sounds quite similar to Mom’s recipe. We like it served with “chips” (cut up sprouted wheat tortillas fried in coconut oil). We love it!


    • Yeah, I got the idea from mom, but had to look up a recipe because I didn’t have hers. I just eat it with a spoon,since I’m trying to avoid grains in general, but gluten, specifically.

    I made this for the family tonight. It was a big hit.
