6 Delicious Pizza Dip Recipes To Try At Home

6 Delicious Pizza Dip Recipes To Try At Home

Pizza is one of those great versatile meals that you can put virtually anything on. I’ve seen literally hundreds of great recipes online, and there is something to suit any taste or trendy diet, including paleo pizzas and low calorie pizzas for those losing weight. However, while there are tons of tasty options, it’s good to make a bit of a change once in a while. For a fun little snack while you watch the game with your friends, beer in hand, or when hosting a party, try out a pizza dip.

That’s right, you take the tried and true recipe that we all know and love, break it down to its components and rearrange it into something equally glorious – you don’t need to make a couple of large pizzas, you can make it work with just the dip. Throw a few breadsticks or crackers into the mix, and you’ve got a party. Here are some of the most delicious pizza dip recipes from around the web.

Classic pepperoni pizza dip

Pepperoni dip

    Cheesy, crunchy and topped with delicious pepperoni – this is the image we all have when hear the word pizza. You simply can’t go wrong with this time-proven classic, and having it in dip form can really catch people of guard, as it looks like a plain old pizza when sitting on the table. As far as taste goes, it is just like the classic, but I do like the addition of olives in the recipe in the link above.

    Cheese bread bowl pizza dip

      If you like cheese as much as I do, then you’ll absolutely adore this great snack. It goes with a fairly straightforward cheesy mix, but adds a creative little spin by placing the dip inside a loaf of bread that functions as a serving bowl. It’s an excellent choice when entertaining guests in a more formal setting, but it can also work great as a quick snack for movie night with your partner.

      Supreme pizza party dip

        This is truly the best snack to offer during big get-togethers like family reunions. It features mushrooms, turkey pepperoni, cream cheese, mozzarella and an assortment of freshly cut veggies, making every bite taste like an explosion of awesomeness. Come to think of it, this one felt more like a lovely light dinner than an unhealthy snack, and you can tweak the recipe to give it your own unique flair. I personally like to go heavy on the veggies, and you can even make it a vegetarian dip if you wish, or add some bacon if you want to go all out.

        Barbecue Chicken pizza dip

          Before we move on, I offer you full disclosure: I love chicken and I can’t get enough of it, so I just might be a little biased here. Be that as it may, this BBQ chicken pizza dip is my absolute favorite party treat. From the moment you bring this dip out and set it on the table, you’ll be racing against the clock, and if you decide to take a quick bathroom break at this point, expect to come back to an empty bowl and a room full of people undoing the last button on their trousers.

          Hot spinach and artichoke pizza dip

          Spinach and artichoke pizza dip

            This unique recipe really goes against the grain and challenges traditional notions of what a pizza should look like. It combines nice healthy foods with several cheeses to produce a savory treat that balances crunchiness and gooey goodness. The recipe here is technically for a pizza, but you can just mix the ingredients in a bowl instead of slapping them on pizza dough and bake until the cheese melts to get an excellent dip.

            Vegan pizza dip

              For those of you that don’t like eating animals, but still enjoy a couple of slices of mouth-watering pizza every once in a while, then this vegan dip is just the thing for you. It actually tastes quite nice, even to a hard core meat-eater like myself, and can be a nice refreshing change of pace for anyone looking to surprise their guests with something unorthodox.

              These recipes are tasty and easy to make, and there is something to suit everyone’s taste, so give them a shot. Don’t be afraid to experiment and come up with some of your own unique ideas.

              How to Stop Procrastinating: 11 Practical Ways for Procrastinators

              How to Stop Procrastinating: 11 Practical Ways for Procrastinators

              You have a deadline looming. However, instead of doing your work, you are fiddling with miscellaneous things like checking email, social media, watching videos, surfing blogs and forums. You know you should be working, but you just don’t feel like doing anything.

              We are all familiar with the procrastination phenomenon. When we procrastinate, we squander away our free time and put off important tasks we should be doing them till it’s too late. And when it is indeed too late, we panic and wish we got started earlier.

              The chronic procrastinators I know have spent years of their life looped in this cycle. Delaying, putting off things, slacking, hiding from work, facing work only when it’s unavoidable, then repeating this loop all over again. It’s a bad habit that eats us away and prevents us from achieving greater results in life.

              Don’t let procrastination take over your life. Here, I will share my personal steps on how to stop procrastinating. These 11 steps will definitely apply to you too:

              1. Break Your Work into Little Steps

              Part of the reason why we procrastinate is because subconsciously, we find the work too overwhelming for us. Break it down into little parts, then focus on one part at the time. If you still procrastinate on the task after breaking it down, then break it down even further. Soon, your task will be so simple that you will be thinking “gee, this is so simple that I might as well just do it now!”.

              For example, I’m currently writing a new book (on How to achieve anything in life). Book writing at its full scale is an enormous project and can be overwhelming. However, when I break it down into phases such as –

              Advertising

              • (1) Research
              • (2) Deciding the topic
              • (3) Creating the outline
              • (4) Drafting the content
              • (5) Writing Chapters #1 to #10,
              • (6) Revision
              • (7) etc.

              Suddenly it seems very manageable. What I do then is to focus on the immediate phase and get it done to my best ability, without thinking about the other phases. When it’s done, I move on to the next.

              2. Change Your Environment

              Different environments have different impact on our productivity. Look at your work desk and your room. Do they make you want to work or do they make you want to snuggle and sleep? If it’s the latter, you should look into changing your workspace.

              One thing to note is that an environment that makes us feel inspired before may lose its effect after a period of time. If that’s the case, then it’s time to change things around. Refer to Steps #2 and #3 of 13 Strategies To Jumpstart Your Productivity, which talks about revamping your environment and workspace.

              3. Create a Detailed Timeline with Specific Deadlines

              Having just 1 deadline for your work is like an invitation to procrastinate. That’s because we get the impression that we have time and keep pushing everything back, until it’s too late.

              Break down your project (see tip #1), then create an overall timeline with specific deadlines for each small task. This way, you know you have to finish each task by a certain date. Your timelines must be robust, too – i.e. if you don’t finish this by today, it’s going to jeopardize everything else you have planned after that. This way it creates the urgency to act.

              My goals are broken down into monthly, weekly, right down to the daily task lists, and the list is a call to action that I must accomplish this by the specified date, else my goals will be put off.

              4. Eliminate Your Procrastination Pit-Stops

              If you are procrastinating a little too much, maybe that’s because you make it easy to procrastinate.

              Identify your browser bookmarks that take up a lot of your time and shift them into a separate folder that is less accessible. Disable the automatic notification option in your email client. Get rid of the distractions around you.

              I know some people will out of the way and delete or deactivate their facebook accounts. I think it’s a little drastic and extreme as addressing procrastination is more about being conscious of our actions than counteracting via self-binding methods, but if you feel that’s what’s needed, go for it.

              5. Hang out with People Who Inspire You to Take Action

              I’m pretty sure if you spend just 10 minutes talking to Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, you’ll be more inspired to act than if you spent the 10 minutes doing nothing. The people we are with influence our behaviors. Of course spending time with Steve Jobs or Bill Gates every day is probably not a feasible method, but the principle applies — The Hidden Power of Every Single Person Around You

              Identify the people, friends or colleagues who trigger you – most likely the go-getters and hard workers – and hang out with them more often. Soon you will inculcate their drive and spirit too.

              Advertising

              As a personal development blogger, I “hang out” with inspiring personal development experts by reading their blogs and corresponding with them regularly via email and social media. It’s communication via new media and it works all the same.

              6. Get a Buddy

              Having a companion makes the whole process much more fun. Ideally, your buddy should be someone who has his/her own set of goals. Both of you will hold each other accountable to your goals and plans. While it’s not necessary for both of you to have the same goals, it’ll be even better if that’s the case, so you can learn from each other.

              I have a good friend whom I talk to regularly, and we always ask each other about our goals and progress in achieving those goals. Needless to say, it spurs us to keep taking action.

              7. Tell Others About Your Goals

              This serves the same function as #6, on a larger scale. Tell all your friends, colleagues, acquaintances and family about your projects. Now whenever you see them, they are bound to ask you about your status on those projects.

              For example, sometimes I announce my projects on The Personal Excellence Blog, Twitter and Facebook, and my readers will ask me about them on an ongoing basis. It’s a great way to keep myself accountable to my plans.

              8. Seek out Someone Who Has Already Achieved the Outcome

              What is it you want to accomplish here, and who are the people who have accomplished this already? Go seek them out and connect with them. Seeing living proof that your goals are very well achievable if you take action is one of the best triggers for action.

              9. Re-Clarify Your Goals

              If you have been procrastinating for an extended period of time, it might reflect a misalignment between what you want and what you are currently doing. Often times, we outgrow our goals as we discover more about ourselves, but we don’t change our goals to reflect that.

              Get away from your work (a short vacation will be good, else just a weekend break or staycation will do too) and take some time to regroup yourself. What exactly do you want to achieve? What should you do to get there? What are the steps to take? Does your current work align with that? If not, what can you do about it?

              10. Stop Over-Complicating Things

              Are you waiting for a perfect time to do this? That maybe now is not the best time because of X, Y, Z reasons? Ditch that thought because there’s never a perfect time. If you keep waiting for one, you are never going to accomplish anything.

              Perfectionism is one of the biggest reasons for procrastination. Read more about why perfectionist tendencies can be a bane than a boon: Why Being A Perfectionist May Not Be So Perfect.

              11. Get a Grip and Just Do It

              At the end, it boils down to taking action. You can do all the strategizing, planning and hypothesizing, but if you don’t take action, nothing’s going to happen. Occasionally, I get readers and clients who keep complaining about their situations but they still refuse to take action at the end of the day.

              Reality check:

              I have never heard anyone procrastinate their way to success before and I doubt it’s going to change in the near future.  Whatever it is you are procrastinating on, if you want to get it done, you need to get a grip on yourself and do it.
