Pizza Dip for Super Bowl LVII

Pin this for any party—Super Bowls, tailgating, holiday buffets, etc.  Or just serve it for dinner.  🙂 

Pizza Dip


This is also a great pot luck dish. Serve with grilled pita wedges (recipe below).


  • 1 T. olive oil
  • half a medium red onion, chopped (about 2/3 c.)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small can sliced black olives, drained
  • 1 (8.5 oz.) jar oil-packed dried tomatoes, slightly drained and chopped
  • 1 (6 oz.) pkg. pepperoni, slightly chopped
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. oregano
  • 1 t.  pepper
  • 1 t. garlic powder
  • 1/2 t. onion powder
  • 2 pkg. (8 ounces each) cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 c. sour cream


  1. In a large skillet, heat olive and add onions.  Cook over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes.  Add garlic and cook another minute or two.
  2. Add tomatoes, black olives, pepperonis and spices.  Stir to combine.
  3. Reduce heat to low; add cream cheese and sour cream. Cook and stir until cheese is melted and well blended (do not scorch).   Place in a serving dish or serve in skillet.
  4. Serve warm with pita chips.

Yield: 12-18


Yes, you can serve this with scoop-sized tortilla chips, but for a more pizza-like experience, use grilled pita wedges.  

Grilled Pita Wedges


These are good simply by themselves.


  • 2 t. fresh chopped fresh oregano, divided*
  • 1 t. garlic powder
  • 1/4 t. fine pink Himalayan salt (more for sprinkling)
  • 1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil
  • 6-8  pitettes (mini pitas)**


  1. Heat a grill pan over medium-high.
  2. Combine  oregano, garlic powder, salt and olive oil in a bowl. Brush oil mixture evenly over both sides of all pitas.
  3. Add bread to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until well marked. Cut pita into 8 wedges. Set aside.  (Keep warm by wrapping in a clean kitchen towel.)

*If fresh oregano is unavailable, use 1 t. of dried.
**Regular pitas can also be used.  You can also brush flour tortillas with the oil mixture and grill.

Honestly, you will want this dip beyond the Super Bowl.  Experiment with your favorite pizza toppings.  I certainly think you could use precooked Italian sausage or Canadian bacon.  I would probably forego pineapple though.  🙂

Who are you rooting for today?

    Separating the bread part from the topping seems like a novel way to have pizza! I hope you enjoyed it and had a fun Sunday.
