Slow Cooker Meat Lover’s Pizza Dip is everything you love about ooey, gooey pizza turned into a crazy good, easy to make appetizer!
I have this crush on slow cooker appetizer dip recipes. They’re easy to make. OMG! So freaking good, and everyone totally loves them. What’s not to love about a cheesy dip in it’s molten, gooey state just begging you to dip something in and take a bite?
One of my other favorite things to eats is pizza. Cheese + sauce + bread = happiness! Since we’re making a dip I decided the bread part of our pizza would be the dip conduit. See? Smart. And the dip itself, magical! It’s everything you imagine it to be. Super cheesy and a little stringy from the mozzarella, studded with pepperoni, Italian sausage, and bacon (for all my bacon freaks out there), and just the right amount of pizza sauce to bring it all together. This dip has definitely earned a permanent spot on for slow cooker dip wall of fame.
Slow Cooker Meat Lover's Pizza Dip
- 8 ounces cream cheese cut into pieces
- 4 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
- 4 ounces shredded Monterrey jack cheese
- 2 ounces pepperoni diced
- 4 ounces mild Italian sausage cooked and crumbled
- 4 ounces bacon cooked and crumbled
- 3 ounces pizza sauce or more to taste
Add all the ingredients to a 1.5-quart slow cooker and stir to combine.
Cover and cook on LOW for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally, until the dip is melted and isn't super stringy.
Turn the crock pot to WARM or transfer the dip to a serving dish. Serve warm with crostini, crackers, or bread sticks.
As the dip cooks, there's a stringy point it will reach, around the 1 hour to 1 1/2 hour mark. The dip will still be really thick. Keep cooking it!
You can also cook this dip on HIGH for 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours, stirring often.
