Pizza Dip #SundaySupper

Today’s Sunday Supper theme is all about Tailgating. I don’t live in a football loving family, not real football or American football. But I have very fond memories of American football from my college years. For a year of college I lived in a house with 5 guys I went to school with and they were big American football fans. Because of my upbringing of moving around so much I can easily adapt to my surroundings and that includes enjoying things other do. During that year I became American football mad. I watched it every weekend, followed teams and players and enjoyed every minute of it. Once I was out of that environment I didn’t keep up with it but I still have very fond memories of that time. So I wanted to share a warm and hearty dip that if I could go back I would have loved to shared with my roommates, Pizza Dip.

My husband and I were so impressed with this dip we skipped our dinner plans and just ate this, it really did taste like pizza with every bite. Next time I think I am going to turn this into a reduced carb pizza night for us and serve it with courgette sticks and cauliflower chips.

Pizza Dip

28g (1 oz) pepperoni slices
85g (3 oz) chorizo
165g (1 c.) finely chopped onion
75g (1/2 c.) finely chopped green bell pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp dried oregano
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 Tbsp tomato paste
400g (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes
40g (1/4 c.) grated Parmesan
114g (4 oz) mozzarella, diced
Recipe from Food Network


Dice up the chorizo . Thinly slice the remaining 1 ounce and set it aside to garnish the dip. Heat a medium ovenproof skillet over medium heat until hot then add the diced chorizo and cooking, until crisp, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the onions, bell pepper, minced garlic, oregano. Cook, stirring occasionally until the onions are very tender and lightly browned, about 5 minutes.

Stir in the tomato paste and stir until it coats the vegetables about 1 minute. Stir in the tomatoes with their juice from the can. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is slightly thickened, about 15 minutes. Stir in the Parmesan and remove from the heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Preheat the grill. Scatter the mozzarella and sliced pepperoni over the dip in the skillet. Place the skillet under the grill and broil until the cheese is melted and lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes.

Serve with bread slices or for a lower carb option you could do courgette sticks and http://www.manuskitchen.com/2013/03/easy-crispy-cauliflower-chips.html.

    What a great dip, Laura! I am thinking some focaccia for dipping would be fabulous too. But I also like the idea of your oven-fried zucchini. Or perhaps I could just eat it with a spoon?

  2. Thanks for joining this week! And thank you for bringing this awesome pizza dip. It’s only 8:45 am but I would love to dig in!

  3. Yum! This would be a huge hit in my home! Looks wonderful! Perfect for football season!!

  4. Yum! We have pizza (almost) every Friday night. Would love to have this variation next time. It would not last long around here.

  5. Oh my gosh… you know how I feel about chorizo! This is a must try in our home.

  6. We love pizza and we love dip – this sounds so good!!! I have to try it asap!

  7. Maybe I could make this with the local chorizo here since we don’t get the regular one. =D I wonder what it would taste like. I needed a pizza dip recipe, thanks a bunch!

  8. We make a pizza dip too, but yours looks so much more flavorful than ours. Love all the extras!

  9. wow this looks great! We love pizza around here (almost too much) — I could see us eating the whole bowl for dinner too lol

  10. This would be such a tailgate hit! So much easier than actual pizzas too.

    I can totally see making a meal out this. Love chorizo and so happy to see it as one of the ingredients.

  15. Bet this one will be the first one with an empty dish!

  16. I’d skip dinner for this dip, too!

  17. Great dip, so many ideas to use for dipping, right

  18. Susan says:

    I had pizza dip awhile back at a friends party, it really is impossible to put down and I’m liking extra added bit of chorizo!

  19. I’d totally eat this dip for dinner too. In fact, I want some for my dinner right now!

  20. Hezzi-D says:

    Everytime I see this dip I want to make it stat but I’ve yet to do it! I could eat pizza everyday and this looks like a much easier way to get the flavors.

  21. PizzA ANYTHING is good in my book!

    Nicely done!

  25. Great find, Laura! Pizza as a dip screams tailgate!

  26. This looks just fantastic! I love the chorizo in it. And I’m glad somebody else had the “experience” of living in a house full of boys in college. Not something I’m sure I’d do again, but it was fun for awhile!

  27. Mmmmm looks really tasty, something hubby and I can enjoy on a Friday night, not so good for the littleun though, he is dairy free, I wonder if I could use vegan cheese on top instead?

  28. That looks great! It’s like Italian Nachos :)

  29. I was reading the comments, and I have to agree with what Tom said.
