Quick and Easy Pizza Dip
This is one of the most requested party dips that I make, Pizza Dip. It’s quick. It’s easy. You can make a double batch in one 9 x 13 pan. It’s vegetarian. Just a few ingredients and bake it up. My video doesn’t have the peppers. My daughter cannot have them.
It’s really that easy. Here’s the recipe.
This is an easy dip. It is SO tasty – who doesn’t love pizza, right? Great for game day or movie night. Also great when the kids bring over their friends. Keep the ingredients on had to whip this up anytime.
- 8 oz container soft cream cheese
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 2 C mozzarella cheese, divided
- 1/2 C pizza sauce
- 2 TB diced red bell pepper
- 2 TB diced green bell pepper
- 1 pkg garlic sticks (garlic or plain)
Heat oven to 350 degrees
Beat the soft cream cheese and the Italian seasoning with an electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.
Spread in a 9-inch pie plate.
Layer toppings as follows: 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese, the pizza sauce, then the other one cup of mozzarella cheese and the peppers.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until mixture is thoroughly heated and cheese is melted.
Serve with breadsticks.
We always doubled this recipe and made it in a 9 x 13 stone baker or glass baking dish. Change the bake time to 25 minutes. Watch that the cheese doesn’t scorch.

Just a note about the breadsticks. The picture shows a very thin breadstick. It was the only ones we could find the day after Christmas. Try to get the thicker ones – like a fat pencil. Not the superfat ones. So, medium zied ones. We always used Garlic flavored. It just adds an Italian flavor.
I hope you enjoy this recipe. Make it for your next gathering. Oh, guys LOVE it, so the Superbowl would be a good time to try this out.
