With the beginning of the new year comes my resolution to eat less take out. This means Jason and I are trying out lots of new recipes! Anything simple is our go to (for obvious reasons). We also prefer making a large portion so we have leftovers for lunches. We love pizza. We love cheese. And we love dips. This recipe I’m sharing with you today is all of those things! It’s pizza. It’s a dip. It’s simple. And it makes a huge portion. One of the best things about this dip is it’s easy to customize. You can add whatever your favorite pizza toppings may be (peppers, black olives, pepperoni, sausage, etc.) and you can use less (or more!) sauce or cheese, if that’s what you prefer. Another one of the best things about this dip? I’m sharing the recipe with you just in time for the Big Game! Whether you’re homegating or heading to a huge Big Game party, this dip is sure to be a favorite!
