Cheesy Hot Pizza Dip with Crunchy Garlic Bread

Good day lovelies! We had some left over bread this morning so I decided to make this super easy and delicious snack.  This is a great alternative for your traditional pizza.  Got this idea a long time ago from YouTube and the first time I tried it, it was so yummy I have to share the recipe with you.  Also, I am a little behind with answering posts, so I will be blog hopping and answering all of your comments later so comment away and leave your blog links so I can visit your blogs.  I really love reading your inspiring posts.  Now onto the recipe :)
Cheesy Hot Pizza Dip with Crunchy Garlic Bread

3.  A small sachet of mayonnaise
4.  Half a block of cream cheese
5.  Pre-prepared pizza sauce

4.  Butter

Okay, now that we have everything, let's start!  In a shallow microwavable bowl, mix half a block of cream cheese, a small sachet of mayonnaise, Parmesan, and a bit of pizza seasoning.  Mix all ingredients together until homogeneously combined.  I added a bit of mayonnaise for the tangy flavor but if you don't like it, leave it out :)  Once the all are well combined, just cover the bowl evenly with the mixture.

Next, get your pre-prepared pizza sauce.  I love the Italian version but you can use the sweet one if you wish.  Layer it over the cream cheese mixture like you see below.Cheesy Hot Pizza Dip with Crunchy Garlic Bread
Now, get your favorite cheese.  I love using leftover cheese for pizzas and hot dips.  Sprinkle it over the sauce until covered.  I used some leftover cheese slices and some Parmesan.  Mozarella would be nice or any quick-melting cheese.

Next, add your toppings.  I had bacon bits on hand so I used those but you can use pepperoni, mushroom, bell pepper, ham, olives, anchovies, or anything you want.  Basil and tomatoes would be a simple but excellent choice too :)  Now, set this aside while we prepare our crunchy garlic bread.

Slice the bread about one-fourth inch thick.  I used leftover pandesal from breakfast but you can use baguette or ciabatta for this.

Now prepare your spread.  In a clean bowl, place melted butter followed by grated garlic and pizza seasoning.  Mix all three together until butter is spreadable.

Next, spread the butter mixture onto both sides of the bread.  Don't skimp on your spread, I even dipped mine! :)  You can sprinkle extra pizza seasoning if you want.  Oh, if you can't find pizza seasoning, use the following herbs:  Dried basil, dried oregano, dried marjoram, garlic and onion powder and some paprika or chili powder if you like.

Now all we have to do is to toast the bread slices on a toaster until they are golden brown.  As for our hot pizza dip, just pop it in the microwave for a minute or two on high or until the cheese melts and you are done!

  1. Wonderful recipe dear. I had a question for Garlic bread process. If we spread the butter and then toast in toaster won't the toaster get messy? I have generally used toaster for toasting plain bread.

  7. Ooh, an easy fix for when I'm craving pizza! Though I'd cheat on the garlic bread and just use the tried-and-tested garlic-flavored Star margarine. ;)
