Hot Pizza Dip w/ Toasted Garlic Baguettes

Who can resist a hot, cheesy dip? Especially when it tastes like pizza!! This is one of my favorite appetizers, which I could totally turn into a meal if I don’t pace myself. It’s super easy to keep eating this pizza dip and get full so if you’re serving this as an appetizer, you might not want to make a whole bunch or folks are gonna be too full for the main course.

This hot pizza dip is soooo good! There is just something fun about slathering all that hot cheesy, pepperoni goodness onto toasted garlic baguettes and sinking your choppers into it. Oh the flavors!! It’s one of those appetizers that make you wanna do a lil dance and hum a lil tune while eating it. You know the kind I’m talking about.

The bottom cream cheese layer blends in perfectly and adds a nice creaminess to the dip.  Usually people are so busy scarfing it down they don’t even realize it has cream cheese in it until they ask “hey what all do you put in this?”

Use your favorite pizza toppings! I usually go with turkey pepperoni (doesn’t leave that big puddle of orange oil on top of the cheese), black olives, and green peppers.

I’ve seen this dip served with all kinda stuff; celery sticks, tortilla chips, mini bagel bites; but trust me, serving this pizza dip on toasted garlic baguettes is a must and you’ll thank me once you taste it. They are a match made in heaven, nuff said.

Just like pizza, this dip is best served piping hot for all that stringy cheese action. Pop this into the oven before you’re ready to serve it or if you’re taking it somewhere, use a heated casserole tote to keep it hot. Pop it into the microwave if you need to, won’t hurt.

  1. I made this last night and it was delicious !! It was very easy to make and so were the baguettes. I can’t wait to make it again…

  2. This was so good and different. Love that you can add whatever flavors you want to it. I made these along with your sausage balls for Super Bowl and both were a big hit. Can’t decide whether I love that I found you or not! No, just kidding. It is just so unusual to find a site that has so many wonderful recipes!

  3. This was delicious.

  4. why don’t you eat pork? does it has to do with religious beliefs? because I stopped eating pig meat when I find out that they’re unfit to eat.

  5. Soo.. I made this for a Sunday night football BBQ … and IT WAS A HIT!!!! I ended up doubling the recipe and it STILL was not enough! Everyone loved it!! Love your site, love your recipes, love your channel! :)

  6. Delicious…thanks diva

  7. My daughter and I just made this and she devoured it. Thanks for a great quick recipe!

  8. Loved this recipe! I made it for a staff function and EVERYONE enjoyed it :-)

  9. I made this for my family and everyone loved it! My husband suggest that I should make this the next time I have get-together with my girlfriends.

  10. Sounds delicious!!! Can you tell me what was that spreading tool you used to spread the cream cheese mixture into your deep dish pie pan? I’ve always just used a butter knife but of course it’s hard to even spread things out when you have to spread ingredients inside of a dish or pan! Lol

  11. Finally made this dip, delicious, a definite keeper. Will make it again and again and again.

  12. I made this for my family and everyone really enjoyed it! The kids are normally picky eaters, but they asked what it was and when I said pizza dip, they really wanted to try it and even asked for seconds. This dish was so good that when I came back for seconds it was gone and everyone was saying that I should have made more of it. I definitely will be making this again. Thanks for the recipe.

  13. Do you have a substitute for the cream cheese because I don’t particularly like it, could I just use all mozzarella for the base?

  14. Cant I turn this into a nice pizza

  15. whoa, this looks amazing! I know that I would turn this into a meal….something about me and dips….I have to eat it until it’s ALL gone. I’m totally pinning this to pinterest so that I won’t forget the recipe. Thanks for sharing cousin!
