The Ultimate Crockpot Pizza Dip

If you’d prefer not to heat the oven up, or don’t have an oven, this recipe can easily be adapted for the crockpot or slow cooker instead! Simply use the ingredients as listed above, but instead of layering them in a pie plate or other baking dish, layer them in your favorite crockpot. For a single batch dip recipe, we prefer to use a 1.5 quart capacity slow-cooker.

For a double or triple batch recipe, we recommend the 2.5 Quart mini casserole crock or else there won’t be enough ingredients in the cooker.

Cook the crockpot pizza dip on high for about 2 hours, then reduce to low to keep warm throughout the party.

  1. this makes me feel like eating tortillas while reading. i didn’t know that i could make one with the use of flour and the not so costly ingredients. at least, i won’t need a tortilla-mixing device to make some.

    thanks for sharing.
