Reviews forEasy Hot Pizza Dip
"Excellent recipe - nice flavor combination and very easy to prepare - served with multi-grain scoops."
"Just okay, not a must-have-again"
"Everyone loves this! I had prepped all of my dishes, including TOH's Three Cheese Potatoes. By mistake, I used the cheese mixture of parm, cheddar, and mozzarella for the potatoes, into this dip. Wow, is this goooooooood!!! We couldn't stop eating it. Served it with tortilla chips, as well as Club Crackers and Ritz. The Club is my favorite with this dip!"
"Been making this one for YEARS! EVERYONE loves it and it is always requested. It's good served with Ritz crackers."
"This was a big hit with the family"
"I made this yesterday, along with another appetizer and a dessert, to take to a family Thanksgiving dinner. Being a huge cheese lover, this was delicious! Very easy to throw together, and can be transported without cooking, so you could cook it when you arrived so it would be nice and hot. I partially cooked, then put it in the oven when we arrived to finish it and ensure it was hot for serving. Will certainly make this again!"
"We have made this for years as a quick appetizer for the kids (who are now adults). Kids loved it, especially after football, basketball practice. I would add a little bit of finely chopped onion the mixture. Nephews loved it too!"
"This was a big hit at a holiday gathering! I took several of the other reviewers' suggestions and reduced the proportion of shredded cheese to pizza sauce - I used 1/2 cup of sauce and 1 cup each of the cheeses; yummy - came home with an empty dish. So good."
"This was not nearly so well received as our buffalo wing dip. I will not make it again as written. The cream cheese needs warmed and mixed in with the other ingredients prior to baking. We would also decrease the ratio of cheese to sauce."
