4 Warm Cheese Dips on a Sheet Pan

yield: 16 SERVINGS

prep time: 30 MINUTES

cook time: 25 MINUTES

total time: 55 MINUTES

Ingredients

For the Buffalo Chicken Dip:

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing
  • 1/2 cup Buffalo wing sauce
  • 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 3/4 cup cooked chicken, shredded
  • sliced green onion * optional garnish after baking

For the Artichoke Cheese Dip:

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sliced artichokes, from a can
  • 1/2 cup real mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup green chiles from a can
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • sliced green onion * optional garnish after baking

For the Chicken Pesto Cheese Dip:

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup prepared pesto
  • 1/4 chopped sundried tomatoes, chopped
  • sliced basil and sundried tomatoes *optional garnish

For the Bacon Cheddar Cheese Dip:

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 4 pieces of cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup real mayonnaise
  • 3/4 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • extra green onion *optional garnish after baking
  • additional bacon crumbled and sliced green onion *optional garnish

For the Dippers:

  • 3- 16 oz. pre-made batches of pizza dough (to roll into balls)
  • olive oil

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray pan with non-stick spray. Roll the pizza dough into about 1 inch sized balls and line the entire perimeter of the pan with dough balls. Also, run a line down the center and across to create a barrier for 4 dips. I used around 64 small balls of dough.

2

Mix up the ingredients for each dip separately, and spread each into its own section on the pan - keeping them in the four separate corners. Use a small kitchen brush to brush a little olive oil over the top of the pizza dough balls.

3

Bake the entire pan for about 25-30 minutes until the dips are bubbling, and the pizza dough balls are cooked and slightly browned.

4

Remove from oven and add any desired garnish to the top. Serve warm.

5

Enjoy!

dip appetizer on sheet pan

Need a dip that’s perfect for a game day appetizer or for any party with a crowd?

If you can’t decide which cheesy dip to make, consider making four! 😂 You’ve gotta check out how I created this large party food appetizer using four melted cream cheese dips and balls of pizza dough as dippers, baked all together on one large sheet pan!

This is sure to make a statement at your next gathering, and it’s surprisingly easy and fun to compile, starting with just a brick of cream cheese for each flavor of dip! The baked pizza dough balls create a fun and delicious separator between each cheesy section.

Hip Tips: 

    • These are 4 cream cheese dips I chose to feature and use, however you could easily change up any of these to suit your family’s taste.
    • I decided to use pre-made pizza dough for convenience (found in my grocery stores deli section), but you could always make a few batches of homemade pizza dough instead. Or if you’re doing the low carb thing, try making fat head dough balls!
    • You’ll need a very large sheet pan for this recipe to make sure it all fits! I am using a 16×22 inch size sheet pan in my example.

    This just made my dreams come true today. Thanks so much. ♥️

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ha YASSS!! It’s exciting, right?! Enjoy 😉

  2. Deb

    OMG, Lina! You always have the BEST ideas. I am going to try this, but make pretzel balls instead.

    • Ihearthip

      Sounds so good

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh I LOVE THAT idea so much. Thanks for sharing, and I appreciate your sweet comment! Thanks Deb!

    • CW

      Share pretzel ball recipe please???? YUM! LOL 🙂

        • Amy

          I’m so excited about the pretzel bites!!! I love soft pretzels!

    • Susy

      Would love to get the pretzel ball recipe from you!!

  3. CW

    Share pretzel ball recipe please???? YUM! LOL 🙂

  4. amy

    This looks delicious! We’re big fans of dip! Most recipes you can safely substitute greek yogurt for the sour cream/cream cheese/mayo if desired AND I’ve had the buffalo chicken dip where hummus was actually used instead of the dairy and I couldn’t tell the difference!!! Hummus! Instead of cream cheese!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes I agree with all those nice subs! Cheese dip is so versatile. Thanks so much Amy!

  5. Susan K.

    This is beautiful and genius.

  6. Allison

    This looks amazing! I have a large family and small recipes just aren’t ever enough! This looks perfect and delicious!!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Awesome! Yes, I think you’ll like this ❤️

  7. brindhaG

    So cool! You are the best… looks yummy

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks!! I’m excited for you to try it!

  8. Rebecca

    This. Is. Amazing!!! How did we ever survive without you Lina?! Thanks so much for this idea!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ha thanks!! You’re very welcome 🙂 ENJOY!

  9. Amyr

    Looks amazing! I suppose you could also use a smaller sheet pan, less dough balls, and two dips for a smaller crowd. Love it!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      YES! Great idea Amy- thanks 🙂

  10. Adrian

    OMG!! We are doing appetizers for Christmas this year, so we can just snack on them throughout the day and not have the stress of a big meal. This is PERFECT! Thank you so much for all you do Lina!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh that’s a fun idea 👍 Merry Christmas Adrian 🎄

  11. Sharvido

    YOU. ARE. BRILLIANT!! Love this so much. DEFINITELY going to try. THANKS SOOO MUCH! You & the whole team are AMAZING!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh thanks and we hope you enjoy this ❤️

  12. Loudflower

    I swear, you are brilliant! This would be the hit of any holiday party.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      It’s a showstopper for sure! Enjoy ❤️🎄 Thanks for your sweet comment!

  13. cpnkay

    This is amazing. My question is, once you start using the dough balls in the middle, did the dips all start to run together and turn into one big mixture?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      No actually, it all stayed pretty separate, since the dough kinda expands a little once baked.

  14. alliekat5656

    Wow, so cool! You rock, Lina!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for the sweet comment!

  15. Mrsyancy

    This looks amaze balls 👌🏼👌🏼👍🏽👍🏽. What’s the easiest way to save this or get back to this recipe? Thx for all you do Lina.

    • VMTX

      I texted this to myself to find next week when I make it!

  16. Queenie

    You should have a daily recipe post just like the one you have for coupons & promos so we all can share our favorite recipes especially during the holidays. I’m always looking for something new to bake.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh thanks for the suggestion Queenie – I’ll share that with our team! <3

      • Queenie

        😃

  17. shop4mybabies

    this is every fat girl fantasy i’ve ever had on one sheet pan. Thank you Lina

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      LOL You betcha! ha

  18. Stacy

    What are the dimensions of the pan you used? I’m trying to figure out if I have a pan nearly as big. Thanks, looks amazing!

  19. Janis

    This looks amazing. I just wish I could do something like this but vegan style for parties and family gatherings. You seem like a genius when it comes to food. Would you be able to come up with a vegan version with just as much flavoring?

  20. Peggy

    What could I use instead of artichokes I don’t like them

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Maybe crab meat or frozen spinach?

  21. Jessica

    I love this idea! Does anyone have a good suggestion for a cheese free dip that could be substituted for one of these?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I was thinking maybe a bean dip or hummus? Unsure of a warm dip to suggest – maybe other can chime in! Thanks!

    • Amy G

      I’m a bit late to the party but someone earlier suggested substituting hummus for the cream cheese in the artichoke dip. They said they couldn’t tell the difference, and I would love to try it for my lactose intolerant sister!

      • Amy G

        And of course omit the Parmesan. Maybe thicken with a dab of xanthan gum if it’s a little thin without the cheese.

  22. Kimberly Mikolajczyk

    Can I use canned biscuits rolled into balls?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hmm I think the cans of pizza dough may work better, but let us know if it works out!

  23. Nikki aka JustTabandMe

    I’m with Kimberly, can we use Pillsbury Pizza dough, & how many cans would we need!!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I would just go by the ounces called for in recipe – 3 – 16 oz containers. I think pillsbury pizza should be similar in size to that. Thanks!

  24. Jody

    Can you freeze after you make the dough? I’ve made this and it rocks! I am hoping I can freeze?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      So I haven’t tried it personally, but sources online say that full fat cream cheese dips can be frozen to enjoy later. 👍

  25. Susie

    Are you able to make this the day before and then cook it the next day? I am trying to have less chaos of getting things done the day before the superbowl lol

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ya that sounds like a great plan! 👍

  26. Doreen

    This is amaze-balls! 😆 I cannot wait to make this for Sunday. 🏈
    How deep should the sheet pan be to encompass the dips sufficiently? More than an inch deep?

  27. Brenna

    How far in advance of baking it can you make this?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I’m sure you can compile all the dips a day or so ahead and then bake it all at once when ready.

  28. Doreen

    How much of an edge should the sheet pan have?

  29. Doreen

    How much of an edge should the cookie sheet have?

  30. Bobbi

    Do you think fat free cream cheese, or reduced fat would work or would it need to be full fat?

  31. Michele

    What pizza dough did you use?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I found some at my local grocery store in bags near the deli. Trader Joe’s has a good one, and you can use the ones in the refrigerated section or even make your own.

  32. Sioux

    What a marvelous post you have. LOVE YOUR DIP RECEIPES. Keep your wonders coming as I for one loves to entertain, with delish foods.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh thanks! I’m glad you like them! Thanks for stopping by today 👏

  33. Diane

    Great Idea!!! I am going to try this for the holidays!! Love the recipes! Thanks so much for sharing!!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks Diane!

  34. CW

    Made this last year! It was good

  35. Lizzymc14

    Now I’m waiting for a fathead dough keto version to appear on Hip2Keto.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Lol 😂 that’s a good idea!

  36. BeSafeY'all

    Ug, no parties with crowds!! I feel it’s irresponsible for Hip2Save to be encouraging people to party with crowds. How about more delightful baked goods to share with your household and limited bubble??

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yes, agree. This was originally posted last year before COVID.

      • BeSafeY'all

        Awesome — because with great power, comes great responsibility. 😉

    • Amanda

      Yes! This was my first thought as well. Please don’t encourage gatherings. We love you, hip2save, and you have many followers. Use your influence wisely!

    Could you use Rhodes rolls?
