I dip, you dip, we dip!

A tantalizing dip is a great way to provide instant gratification. Many can be made ahead of time and simply heated or plated.

A favorite in Pizza Today’s home base of Louisville, Kentucky is beer cheese. Now, there’s debate on whether it should be served hot or cold. But what’s not debatable is its menu appeal. Let’s look at some other dips that will make your customers say, “Yes, please!”

This is an easy dish using items you probably already have in your kitchen. No two will taste the same as you use your proprietary red sauce and add your own touches with the herbs and spices you use.

Roasted Pepper Dip

Simple ingredients, easy prep time, low food cost and delicious flavor make a roasted red pepper dip a great option for your appetizer menu. Serve it with toasted Italian bread or pita chips.

Customers can’t get enough pizza so why not use your basic pizza toppings for a scrumptious appetizer? With the addition of the cream cheese and sour cream, it has a creamy and tangy flavor that’s sure to be a hit.

You typically think of bean dip with southwestern or Mexican food. Here’s an Italian recipe that offers a crisp, flavorful take on the dip. Don’t forget to customize it by adding your own spin on Italian herbs and spices.

You can’t go wrong with this dip. It’s a favorite around the country. If you find that your customers are not big on the bleu cheese, substitute it out for another cheese like mozzarella or fontina. You can play around with a cheese combination that works with the Buffalo sauce.
