2. The best of both worlds. Pizza & Spinach dip. In the same bite. Yes. 

3. It's a dip and we already know we love them all.  

Skillet Pizza Dip 

  • What you need: 

  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 box (9 oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 1 cup creamy Alfredo sauce
  • 1 cup freshly shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1 cup diced chicken breast, divided leave out? Use rotisserie
  • ½ cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes (packed in oil and drained) divided
  • 3 sticks mozzarella string cheese
  • 1 tube refrigerated classic pizza crust
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, shredded

What to do: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a 10-inch oven-safe non-stick skillet (or cast iron skillet) with 1 teaspoon butter.
  2. Squeeze excess water out of spinach and stir spinach into the Alfredo sauce. Add half of the shredded mozzarella cheese along with 2/3 of the diced chicken and 2/3 of the sun-dried tomatoes. Stir just until combined.
  3. Cut each string cheese into 4 pieces. Unroll pizza dough and cut it into 12 squares.
  4. Brush egg white over pieces of pizza dough. Set one piece of the string cheese on a square of dough. Attach opposing corners of the dough, then pinch around the edges to seal the dough. Pinch and roll into a ball.
  5. Arrange the balls of dough in a single ring around the edge of the buttered skillet. Spoon spinach mixture into the center of the skillet.
  6. Brush the tops of the dough balls with olive oil and sprinkle the shredded Parmesan cheese over top.
  7. Sprinkle some of the remaining mozzarella cheese and all the remaining chicken and sun-dried tomatoes over the spinach dip, then top with the remaining mozzarella cheese.
  8. Bake for 32-35 minutes, until the pizza crust turns deep golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
