I love chorizo, and I’m also constantly craving pizza, so I figured it was time to put two of my loves together into one amazing dip. With football (go Broncos!) and NHL hockey (go Oilers!) starting up shortly, now’s a good time for me to put up some good game-day/tailgating party type food up here.

You need not be a sports fan to enjoy this, of course. Any occasion (or non-occasion) will do. 😉

This dip is quick to prep, and the hardest part is waiting the half hour until you can devour this ooey gooey cheesy dip hot out of the oven!

Just a quick note… I used Spanish chorizo in this recipe. It is different than the Mexican variety.

You could bake this in pretty much any oven-safe shallow dish. I used a 9.5″ glass pie dish – I’ve seen other pizza dips made in these, and most people have them or something similar. Or a cast iron skillet.

Chorizo Pizza Dip

Chorizo pizza dip with garlic baguette slices for dipping... because all that cheese, garlic, and flavor just go so well together. This hot dip is easy to make and will please a hungry crowd.
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 30 minutes
Total: 40 minutes
Servings: 6

Ingredients 

  • 8 ounces cream cheese (room temp.)
  • 1 cup parmesan divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 (7.2 fluid ounce can) tomato sauce
  • 5 leaves fresh basil
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar/mozzarella blend
  • 5 ounces Spanish chorizo sausage

Garlic baguette toasts (optional):

  • 1 baguette
  • Butter
  • Garlic powder

Instructions 

  • Take the cream cheese out of the fridge to allow it to soften. Preheat oven to 375F. Move rack to the top third of the oven.
  • Grate the cheeses (if not buying pre-grated) and cut the chorizo into bite-size pieces.
  • Mix together the cream cheese, half the parmesan, the garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, sour cream, and salt & pepper. Spread it evenly along the bottom of a baking dish (I used a glass pie dish).
  • Add the tomato sauce and spread it over the cream cheese mixture. Add the basil leaves (tear them into smaller pieces) then the rest of the parmesan, the cheddar/mozza cheese, and finish off with the chorizo on top.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, if you want to make the garlic baguette toasts, slice the baguette into fairly thin slices. Add butter to a skillet on medium-high heat and fry each slice. When they're nearly done, lightly sprinkle them with garlic powder. If the pan starts to smoke, I suggest turning the heat down. Alternatively, you could just use a toaster to toast the baguette slices and then add butter and garlic powder after.
  • Serve the dip hot out of the oven šŸ™‚

Notes

  • I used a Pyrex 9.5 inch glass pie dish like this one.
  • Chorizo is fairly salty, so you can get away without adding extra salt.
  • This dip can be re-warmed in the oven the next day, but it is best fresh.
