How to Make Pizza Dip Step by Step
In a medium-sized bowl, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, and Italian seasoning. Using a stand mixer or electric hand mixer, mix the ingredients together until the mixture is creamy and smooth. The fewer lumps, the better. Spread the cream cheese mixture into a pyrex pie plate or 8″x8″ baking dish in an even layer.
Spread Pizza Sauce over the top, then chopped onions/green peppers and chopped pepperoni.
Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and top with another layer of pepperoni. Bake at 350°F for about 18-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve with tortilla chips.
If you’d prefer, you can also make your own pizza sauce as well.
You can put whatever pizza toppings that you prefer on this dip- bacon bits, ham & pineapple, mushrooms, etc. If you’d like to make this pizza dip keto simply serve with sliced veggies or with low carb tortilla chips.

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.
