This easy White Pizza Dip is ooey, gooey and oh so delicious! It’s a sure-fire crowd pleaser that’s great for everything from game day to birthday parties!
There is a restaurant in our area that makes THE BEST white pizza. They are known throughout the land for their white pizza recipe and it’s no wonder. It has a thick, double crust, lots of gooey cheeses, sliced onions and plenty of Rosemary (my favorite part!). I love everything about this pizza. When I first came across this recipe for White Pizza Dip, I wondered if it could stand up to the real thing & come close to the deliciousness of my favorite indulgent appetizer, Warm & Cheesy Crack Dip. Let’s just say, I was not disappointed! And, neither were my friends.

Some of you might be wondering what is white pizza?
- White pizza (or pizza bianca) is basically a pizza without tomato sauce. You can think of it as the best thin crust garlic cheese bread you’ll ever have. And if you have a family with mixed opinions (some that like sauce and some that don’t, like mine) you can serve my best ever pizza sauce alongside for dipping.
If you’re not sure about losing the tomato sauce, maybe these basics for how to make white pizza will sway you.
- Olive oil and garlic are used for the “sauce” over fresh pizza dough. Though I have seen alfredo sauce used too.
- Then the pizza is topped with LOTS of cheese, usually a combination of mozzarella, ricotta, and parmesan.
- Additional toppings can be added as well – like pancetta, basil, mushrooms, shaved asparagus, spinach, red onion, or whatever else you like!
Next to my Buffalo Chicken Dip and my Baked Spinach and Artichoke Dip, this dip is right up there on my list of favorites! I was blown away by how incredibly easy this pizza dip is to make. It will take you longer to clean the baking dish than it will take to throw this dip together. Plus, you could easily mix it up ahead of time and bake it when you’re ready to eat so it’s nice and hot. And bubbly and cheesy…mmmmm. Or, you could make it in a mini slow cooker to keep it warm.
I like to serve pita chips with or baguette slices with this pizza dip. But let’s be honest, it’s good on just about anything – breadsticks, pretzels, broccoli or even just a spoon!People tend to go crazy over this stuff. At least, my family and friends do. It’s one of those recipes that you will be asked to bring to parties. Just be prepared. Trust me. I want to leave you with a word of caution…it is very hard to stop eating this dip once you’ve started. Keep that in mind!

Thanks for the recipe! One of the best parts of white pizza is the garlic, but I see you get that from a mix…do you think adding fresh garlic to this would be too much?
I love this recipe, whoever I make it for falls in love. I’m even making it today for a super bowl party.
This so good, will have to give it a try. Is that a Pampered Chef baker?
im in the UK what is the equivilant for the soup mix?
I am thinking of making this but want to know what kind of crackers or bread you serve with it. Thanks. Looks delish.
Never disappointed with your recipes
I despise ricotta cheese… can it be substituted?
Jacqueline Lee says
I do not like ricotta cheese either. I substituted small curd cottage cheese instead and it was just fine. I also use cottage cheese when I make lasagna. I hope this helps.
Betty Pickering says
This dip is the best! My family has loved it for years and never gets tired of it.
