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

            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 Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

              How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

              Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

              If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

              1. Breathe

              The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

              • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
              • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
              • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

              Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

              2. Loosen up

              After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

              Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

              3. Chew slowly

              Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

              Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

              Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

              4. Let go

              Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

              The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

              It’s not. Promise.

              Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

              Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

              21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

              5. Enjoy the journey

              Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

              Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

              6. Look at the big picture

              The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

              Advertising

              Will this matter to me…

              • Next week?
              • Next month?
              • Next year?
              • In 10 years?

              Hint: No, it won’t.

              I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

              Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

              7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

              You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

              Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

              8. Practice patience every day

              Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

              • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
              • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
              • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

              Final thoughts

              Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

              Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
