How to make the best Pull-Apart Garlic Bread Pizza Dip

  1. Preheat your oven to 350-F and spray a 9×13 baking dish with baking spray. Set it aside.
  2. Combine 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese, the gouda cheese, softened cream cheese, ricotta cheese, ½ cup of parmesan, dried basil, dried oregano, and red pepper flakes in a large bowl. Season with salt.
  3. Transfer this mixture to the prepared baking dish and spread the pizza sauce over the top. 
  4. Top with the remaining mozzarella cheese, and place the pepperoni slices over the top of the mozzarella in an even layer.

Tips & substitutions

  • Make this easy dip recipe ahead of time and pop it into the fridge until you’re ready to bake and serve! Add a few extra minutes of baking time if the dish is fridge-cold.
  • Switch up the cheese! You can use Pepper Jack, cheddar, Colby or whatever you have on hand instead of the gouda.
  • Serve some extra pizza sauce on the side for even more dipping.
