Ya Baby, Skinny Baked Pizza Dip


pizza dip
Warm pizza in a dip?  It doesn’t get better than this! Super easy to make and a real hit with kids and grown-ups alike. It’s much skinnier than a regular recipe because I’m using reduced-fat cheeses, very lean turkey pepperoni and a delicious skinny ranch.  Each serving2 tablespoons, has 75 calories, 5 grams of fat and 2 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. It’s awesome!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 18 minutes


1 (8 oz) package reduced-fat (25% less fat) cream cheese

½ cup The BEST Skinny Ranch Dressing (3 ingredients)

 or a store bought light ranch (you could use ¼ cup light mayonnaise plus ¼ cup fat-free sour cream instead of ranch dressing)

½ cup pizza sauce, see shopping tip

1 clove garlic, minced

½ teaspoon Italian seasonings

½ teaspoon onion powder

1 cup (3 ounces) reduced-fat turkey pepperoni, chopped and divided, see shopping tip

½ cup light mozzarella cheese

¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Toasted Boboli slices, baguette slices, bread sticks, and/or Milton’s whole wheat snack crackers.


1. Preheat oven to 375. Coat a 9” pie plate with cooking spray.

2. In a processor or using a hand mixer, whip cream cheese until smooth. Stir in ranch dressing, pizza sauce, garlic, Italian seasoning, and onion powder.

3. Add ¾ cup turkey pepperoni and ½ of the mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.

4. Pour into pie plate and spread evenly. Top with remaining pepperoni and cheeses.

5. Bake for about 15-20 minutes until hot and bubbly.

6. Serve at once with toasted Boboli triangles, toasted baguette slices,  bread sticks and/or Milton’s whole wheat snack crackers. I even like this dip served with celery sticks.

Makes 2 cups (1 serving, 2 tablespoons)

Shopping Tips

This recipe uses ½ of a 6 oz package of Hormel’s 70% reduced-fat turkey pepperoni. You’ll find it in the luncheon meat section of most supermarkets. If you can’t find it, substitute with reduced-fat salami.

Pizza sauce is sold in jars at most supermarkets. I bought it at Trader Joe’s. There are several brands available such as Ragu.
