Pizza dip is one of my favorite appetizers, but it isn’t the best dip for tailgating. It needs to be spread on bread slices and can get really messy. I really wanted pizza dip for our tailgate party last weekend, so I decided to make little individual pizza dip bites.
I used refrigerated crescent rolls to make mini bread bowls and filled each one with the pizza dip. It worked great! I didn’t’ add any pizza toppings in my pizza dip bites, but I feel free to add your favorite toppings. I think olives, bell peppers, mushrooms or pepperoni would be great.
Pizza Dip Bites
- 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
- 1 tsp dried Italian seasoning
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
- ¾ cup parmesan cheese
- 8 oz pizza sauce
- 2 Tbsp green pepper, chopped (optional)
- 2 Tbsp pepperoni, chopped (Optional)
- 2 cans refrigerated crescent rolls
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Combine cream cheese and Italian seasonings , set aside.
Lightly spray a mini muffin pan with non stick cooking spray. Unroll one can of crescent rolls and press dough into one large rectangle. Cut rectangle into 24 squares. Press dough squares into muffin cups and shape up around the edges. Repeat with remaining can of crescent rolls.
Spread cream cheese mixture in bottom of each muffin tin. Top with half of mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Spread pizza sauce over the cheese mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Top with bell pepper and pepperoni (or toppings of your choice).
Bake for 15-18 minutes, until crescent rolls are golden brown.
