Football rivalries. I remember them in high school football, and now I experience them with college and NFL football teams.
When it comes to college football, Zach and I are both loyal (forever true!) Iowa State Cyclone fans. We were avid fans throughout college and continue to cheer for the cardinal and gold today.
However, when we talk about NFL football, Zach and I will definitely not be wearing the same colors. The Packers and the Vikings play on Sunday and we'll be rooting for the opposite teams. I'll be sporting my green and gold (Go Pack, Go!) and Zach will decked out in purple and yellow... At least we'll agree on the game day "grub"!
This Hot Pizza Dip has "game day" written all over it! It's got all the flavors of a slice of supreme pizza, but in dip form. It's flavorful, cheesy and impossible to resist!!
What other topping can I use?
Something I love about this recipe is that you can change it to fit your pizza preferences. Don't like peppers? Skip them! Love mushrooms, add them! Want extra cheese? More power to ya! Here's a list of some toppings you could play around with!
- Black olives
- Canadian bacon
- Diced onions
- Cheddar cheese
- Crumbled bacon
What should I use to dip into the pizza dip?
My favorite thing to dip into the hot pizza dip is toasted baguette slices (crostini). However, there are many more options! You could use crackers, pita chips, tortilla chips and even vegetables (carrots, celery, bell pepper strips)!
