There is pizza, and there is a hot pizza dip! Hot pizza dip is a pizza without the crust. You know, the delicious melted cheese with your favourite toppings that you get on a regular pizza except without the bread. In this recipe, I used three types of cheeses, fresh tomatoes, basil, some garlic, and ham or pepperoni. I have also added jalape├▒o pepper, which is optional but I love spicy dips, so adding some heat really kicks it up a notch. Doesn’t this sound so good? This is one of those fail-proof appetizers that everyone will love, I mean who doesn’t love a pizza?. Don’t know what to bring to a party? Bring this dip and just pop it in the oven, it’s that simple. I have served this dip with gluten-free ciabatta bread (recipe coming up soon), but for those of you who watch the carbs, this dip goes well with fresh veggies like celery, broccoli or cauliflower. Gluten-Free corn chips are also a big hit with this hot pizza dip, just spoon the gooey dip on your chips and enjoy! You can also serve this hot appetizer during sports events yum!! With the holidays coming up, having an appetizer that is this simple to make is a must. You will not be disappointed, I promise ­čÖé The best part is, you can prepare the dip a day in advance, just bake when you are ready. This will reduce your stress level when entertaining, believe me I know how crazy it can get during the holiday season
