If you can’t get enough of pizza, then you’re gonna love this recipe.
Lately, we’ve been playing experimenting with new ways of eating our favorite food, and this Pizza Dip is more or less like a deconstructed pizza pie (why is it called pizza pie anyway?) on a party platter. Or a crossbreed of Chips & Dip and Pizza that isn’t Pizza-Flavored Potato Chips.
You can put your crazy hat on by adding all sorts of other ingredients such as pineapples, bell peppers, olives, salami, pepperoni, etc etc etc. We just wanted to keep it simple for this recipe, so we only used garlic and prosciutto bits. Okay, we kinda cheated and used garlic powder to amplify the garlic flavor. But hey, by using garlic powder, you need not worry about acquiring breath that’s powerful enough to drive Bella and Edward away.
We believe that a key contributor to the yumminess factor of this Pizza Dip is the brand of mayonnaise we used—Kewpie! I swear, you can never, ever go wrong with Japanese mayonnaise. It is, in fact, the only kind of mayo I could tolerate. The hints of the rich, eggy flavor can be tasted in each bite (and it goes surprisingly well). Dip a piece of crunchy Crostini into a piping, hot ramekin filled with the gooey stuff, and watch those cheesy strings unravel around your bread. Delicioso!
