Spread the love

If you want pizza NOW and don't have time to make a low-carb crust, then you're in luck. Ditch the crust and make a pizza dip! 


One of my fondest memories is standing in my best friends kitchen devouring Easy Pizza Dip that her mom made for us. There would always be two fresh baguettes sliced up for scooping and shoveling dip into our mouths. It wasn’t the healthiest of foods, but back then nutrition wasn’t an issue for our parents. We ate what we wanted and then went outside and ran around to work it off!

At the time, my best friend was a vegetarian so she would work around the pepperoni and still manage to get all the other goodness. So, for all of you vegetarian dip lovers out there, this can be made with or without the meat portion or made with and eaten around!

What Do I Dip?

That’s a good question, and we know the options can be somewhat limited on a keto diet. We made our low carb dinner rolls recipe into a baguette shape. We brushed it with some olive oil and sprinkled with parmesan cheese. Here’s some other ideas though:

Substitutions

For this recipe we used 1/3 less fat cream cheese due to its general lower carb count. We also used store brand tomato sauce we had in the cupboard. If you are looking for a higher fat count and lower carb count you can opt for the full fat cream cheese and try Rao’s Homemade Tomato Sauce, which I have linked for you below in the ingredients. We just discovered Rao’s in Whole Foods, but were dettered from purchasing it due to the high cost.

When I used to eat this in my best friends kitchen we always made it with onions instead of onion powder. I opted to leave those out of this recipe due to their carb count. However, if you’re looking for a little crunch in your bite onions are a great option! The great thing about this dip is one you have the cream cheese, sour cream base the possibilities are endless. I can guarantee this dip will be show stopper at your next party!
