This dip is baked in the oven, but could easily be adapted for a slow cooker dip as well.

And since it’s packed full of cheese, veggies, mayo, and other low carb ingredients, it fits perfectly in the keto lifestyle without even trying to. Just use cucumber slices or celery sticks to dip instead of tortilla chips or corn chips, and you’ll find your new favorite keto snack!

How to Make Hot Pepperoni Pizza Dip

I start by chopping up all my veggies first. For our version, I chopped up half a green pepper, half an onion, and half a cup of mushrooms. I also diced up 1 cup of pepperoni.

Then in a large bowl, mix your shredded cheeses, softened cream cheese, mayo, seasoning, and pizza sauce. Make sure everything is mixed together well and smooth. Then, fold in all of your veggies and pepperoni.

You can use a pie dish or any 1-quart baking dish. No need to grease the pan first, just spoon your dip into the dish and smooth it out evenly.

Then, bake at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes or until it’s heated through and the cheese is nice and golden brown on top.

Then dig in! It’s so addicting and tastes just like a pizza without all the carbs you get in the crust!

Substitutions for Easy Pepperoni Pizza Dip

You really can feel free to add or take away the toppings to suit your preference. Don’t like black olives? Leave them out! Want to add some banana peppers? Throw them in! Make your dip the way you’d want to make your pizza with your favorite flavors!

You can also change out the mozzarella and cheddar cheeses if you want for the cheese of your choice. I like to blend cheeses in most of my recipes, but feel free to use what you have on-hand.

In conclusion, this Hot Pizza Dip Recipe is the perfect party appetizer for any game day occasion. Not only does it taste delicious, but it also can be customized with whatever toppings you desire. With its easy-to-follow instructions and minimal preparation time, this easy, go-to party recipe makes for a great addition to any meal.
