Feta Baked in Pizza Sauce

This Baked Feta Dip is inspired by our favorite pizza place. This is our go-to appetizer. We hadn’t been to eat pizza in a while, so we decided to make some baked feta at home last weekend. This is a very simple dip; it only has three ingredients. It tasted just as good as the restaurant’s version – creamy and a little spicy. We almost ate the whole thing (we are little piggies). Give this a try at your Super Bowl party this weekend. Your guests will LOVE it!!

How to Make Baked Feta

This dip is effortless to make. Simply combine crumbled feta, pizza sauce, and red pepper flakes. Spread the mixture into a small baking dish and bake until bubbly.

  • Can Baked Feta be made in advance? Yes! You can assemble the dip ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • You can use pizza sauce or spaghetti sauce.
  • Here is our favorite pizza sauce recipe: https://www.plainchicken.com/brownie-pan-pizza-with-homemade-pizza/
  • My favorite store-bought jarred spaghetti sauces are Trader Joe’s Roasted Garlic Marinara, Rao’s, and La Famiglia Del Grosso.

  1. I just brought this up to make again – I've made it a few times now! – and wanted to mention that I make it in a slow cooker to make it easier to serve. I just keep it plugged in for the party and it stays nice and warm. Such a simple recipe – I love it!

  2. Bogga Gunnars – that sounds really good. If you try it, let me know how it turns out. I might give that a try this weekend.

  3. This just came up on my pinterest feed, and the article says "super bowl party THIS weekend." Had a moment of panic before I saw it's from 2011! I thought I had forgotten the Super Bowl! Thanks for the delicious recipe, and the affirmation that my heart is, in fact, still working 😉

  4. I love feta(!!!) but I don't really love pizza sauce, actually I'm not a big fan of red sauce in general even though I love tomatoes. Do you think this could be done with a white sauce, maybe alfredo? It sounds good but it might be too rich. Thoughts?

  5. Oh my…..fabulous! I actually haven't seen this before, but I must try it out. I fear I will have to guard it from the hubby. 😉

  6. that looks amazing! I adore feta! Although I can't find good feta here, I like it when it comes in the salty brine, not pre-crumbled.
