Easy Pizza Dip

Pizza is awesome…pizza as a dip is better!

If you’re a cheese lover or a pizza fan you’re going to love this crust-less pizza dip!


  • 8 ounces brick-style cream cheese, very well-softened (lite is okay
  • 1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese, divided (3/4 cup + 3/4 cup
  • 1 cup finely grated parmesan cheese, divided (1/2 cup + 1/2 cup
  • 1 heaping cup pizza sauce (or your favorite marinara or red sauce)
  • About 15 pepperoni slices, or as needed to cover surface of pie dish

Serving Suggestions – toasted French bread or baugettes, breadsticks, garlic toasts, pita chips, bagel chips, crackers, or eat by the spoonful!


  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Spray a 9-inch pie dish (I used a glass Pyrex) with cooking spray.
  2. Using a spatula or butter knife, evenly spread the cream cheese over the base of pie dish. It’ll slide around a bit and it doesn’t have to be perfect, but it’s so much easier if your cream cheese is very well-softened.
  3. Evenly sprinkle 3/4 cup mozzarella over cream cheese.
  4. Evenly sprinkle 1/2 cup parmesan.
  5. Evenly add the pizza sauce to cover cheese and if necessary, gently spread it with a spatula or knife to evenly disperse.
  6. Evenly sprinkle 3/4 cup mozzarella over sauce.
  7. Evenly sprinkle 1/2 cup parmesan.
  8. Evenly top with pepperoni slices.
  9. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until cheese is melted and done to your liking. Allow to cool. Serve!
