I am one of the contenders in the Ryvita Blogger Challenge. We were challenged to make a dip that would compliment their Ryvita Thins, the perfect flatbread for dipping and sharing! And at just 37 calories each, the thins are low in calories so you can enjoy an indulgent dip without any guilt. With the weather being so chilly, I decided to go with a hot dip, oozing with bubbling cheese and herby tomato sauce.
With layers of hot bubbling cream cheese and herbs, mixed grated Mozzarella and Cheddar and herby tomato sauce, the dip delivers all the deliciousness of pizza and the fun of sharing with friends.
My recipe will be featured on Ryvita's Facebook page along with the other bloggers' dip recipes. You can vote for your favourites and the winning recipe may feature on a TV ad! You can vote here in a simple one click poll. It'd be lovely to get some support!!
In case you wanted to make the Cheesy Pizza Dip for yourself, here's the recipe:
150g Cream Cheese
1 teaspn mixed herbs
2 oz Mozzarella grated
2 oz Cheddar grated
5 tblspns herby tomato sauce (make your own using: 1 crushed clove of garlic and 1 diced onion, fried until soft, add teaspn herbs and 150g of tomato passata...simmer for 15 minutes)
Chopped red pepper
Combine cream cheese and herbs, top with half the grated cheese, spread sauce on top and finish with the remaining cheese. Decorate with chopped pepper. Bake for 15 mins at GM 5 until bubbling and serve with the Ryvita Thins.
At my dad's birthday lunch and I used him, my mum and sister as dip guinea pigs! Thankfully it got a big thumbs up and everyone enjoyed the taste and texture of the now tried and tested Cheesy Pizza Dip!
