Layered Pizza Dip

*Adapted from allrecipes.com

  • 8 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 oz. pepperoni
  • Fresh Basil, *Garnish Idea
  • Toasted Baguette Slices, *Serving Idea
  • Mix cream cheese with Italian seasonings and garlic powder
  • Spread on the bottom of a 9 inch pie dish.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, then 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese evenly.
  • Spread pizza sauce over the top.
  • Layer with the other 1/2 cup of Parmesan and 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese.
  • Add Pepperoni to the top.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for about 12-15 minutes until melted and bubbly.
  • Add garnish and serve with toasted baguette slices.


I’m NOT exaggerating when I say this PIZZA DIP is insanely GOOD!! You have to try it!🍕

I think the key is to season the cream cheese well and use a toasted baguette or something sturdy like a pita chip to dip. Also, it’d be fun to make a pepperoni dip and then also make one with a few more favorite pizza toppings for a different variation!

    Yummy, I love this and I do mine in an iron skillet. You are right about needing a sturdy bread to serve it on because when then cheese cools it gets harder to dip. I used pretzel chips and ritz crackers but baguettes probably would be better… Thanks Lina!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Great idea on the skillet!

  3. mindy

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh thanks Raedev!

  7. Sara

    We have always used plain wheat thins to dip with!! SOOO GOOD!!

  8. Meghan

    Anyone have any other types of ideas to use besides the bread to dip with?

    • rebecca

      maybe breadsticks, pretzel crisps, pita chips, bagel chips, pretzel rods.
      someone else suggested Wheat Thins.
      i think Triscuits or bagel chips would be delicious with this!

      • Grey

        mini bagels, celery

        • Brenda

          We use Frito’s Scoops. I also use mini salad pepperonis in mine.

          • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

            Great idea!

    • Ihearthip

      Bacon 🙂
      Pita chips
      Thick cut bell pepper slices
      Halved cheese biscuits
      Strips of steak

    • Cindy C

      It’s delicious with Ritz crackers!

    • Jac.674

      I love the veggie ideas: broccoli, carrot sticks, cauliflower, celery sticks, bell pepper slices

      Has anyone tried using these, and did they hold up to the dip?

  9. Renee

    This dip also work well with those tiny pepperonis that are almost dime size 😋

    • Daphne Murray

      We use the mini pepperonis too. I also make mine in a small crock pot with all ingredients mixed together. After it’s thoroughly mixed together, I just keep it on warm throughout the party.

      • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

        Great Idea!

      • Grey

        yeah, my store was sold out too. I was thinking of just quartering the large peperonis and mixing them in with the cream cheese.

        • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

          Yes! Great idea 👍

      • Kim

        Can you share the crockpot directions?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes!!! I was looking for them actually! My store was out.

  10. Tammy

    Low carb, too…Yay! Thanks a bunch…:)

  11. Megan

    I use French bread baked into those pampered chef bread tubes!

  12. Caroline

    We use the large dipping Fritos. Yum!

  13. Allison 💙

  15. Nina

  16. Briana Macy

    We always use nacho cheese Doritos. Can’t have too much cheese, right? 🙂

  17. Laura

    This looks amazing- and I already have everything!! So totally doing this for the game 😀

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Enjoy Laura! 🍕🏈

  18. momof4

    Can you put it in the crockpot?

    • Laura

      I haven’t made this before, but I’m planning to mix the ingredients together (because my son would freak out and refuse to eat it if he saw cream cheese), put it in the crock pot, and keep it on warm. I’m hoping that by doing this the cheese won’t get too cool and harden, or too hot and burn onto the crock.

  19. momof4

    I’ve made it twice now in the crockpot. It’s soooo good! Seemed a little thick after awhile so just added a little more pizza sauce.

  20. RDHarris

    This is the dip is awesome. At gatherings, it is always the first empty dish! I have always served it with nacho/tortilla chips!

    • Lina D

      Thanks for sharing! So glad 😀
