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 Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

              How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

              Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

              You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

              Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

              1. Work on the small tasks.

              When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

              Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

              2. Take a break from your work desk.

              Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

              Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

              3. Upgrade yourself

              Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

              The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

              4. Talk to a friend.

              Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

              Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

              5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

              If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

              Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

              Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

              6. Paint a vision to work towards.

              If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

              Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

              Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

              7. Read a book (or blog).

              The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

              Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

              Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

              8. Have a quick nap.

              If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

              9. Remember why you are doing this.

              Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

              What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

              10. Find some competition.

              Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

              Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

              11. Go exercise.

              Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

              Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

              As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

              Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

              12. Take a good break.

              Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

              Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

              Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
