Hot Honey Pizza Dip

Hand dipping crostini into pizza dip that has pepperoni and basil as featured toppings.
Skip the crust! This dip takes all the flavors of a classic pizza and transforms them into a melty, savory sensation that's perfect for sharing (or not – we won't judge if you want it all for yourself!) Combine melted cheeses, Italian spices, zesty tomato sauce and, of course, our not-so-secret ingredient: hot honey for a flavorful kick! Pair with crostinis, breadsticks, tortilla chips or even just a spoon.
