Layered Hot Pizza Dip

This easy Layered Hot Pizza Dip is perfect for game day parties or anytime you need a cheese fix! Packed with a variety of cheese, veggies and pepperoni, this dip is perfect for Super Bowl parties and beyond.

Layered Hot Pizza Dip

So basically, this is a crustless pizza, and because of that, it’s gluten-free. This dip / appetizer is packed full of veggies, cheeses, and pepperoni goodness and I promise, you won’t miss the crust at all!

Layered Hot Pizza Dip

I used my favorite rectangular baking dish, but you can also use an oval or round dish.

The layers are easy to assemble starting with a kicked-up cream cheese layer, followed by pizza sauce, then more cheese and spinach (optional – could sub with sausage if you prefer a meaty dip), then layer on the pepperoni, hit with diced onion and green peppers and finish with topping of mozzarella cheese.

Slide the layered dip into the oven and bake, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted, bubbly, and browning on the edges.

Serve it up with pita chips, bread, crackers, veggies…basically whatever floats your boat and is dip-able.

Pan-Seared Salmon with Creamy Greek Yogurt Lemon Dill Sauce

This zesty Pan-Seared Salmon with Creamy Greek Yogurt Lemon Dill Sauce is a quick and easy meal to prepare.

Pan-Seared Salmon with Creamy Greek Yogurt Lemon Dill SauceNote: This post contains Amazon affiliate links.

The salmon will cook quickly with this method. I rinse and dry the salmon and season it with salt and a little pepper. I then pan-sear it, flesh side down, in a well-oiled stainless steel skillet for a few minutes until a crust has formed. I reduce the heat to low and add a small amount of water or white wine to the pan, whichever is handy, and put a lid on it to finish cooking the salmon all the way through. Once cooked, flip it out onto a plate to rest, skin side down.
Blackened Pan Seared Salmon

While the salmon is cooking, you can quickly make the creamy Greek yogurt lemon dill sauce. Grab a medium sized mixing bowl and add yogurt, lemon juice (or lemon zest), salt and chopped fresh dill. Still together until all ingredients are mixed. Taste it and add more salt or lemon juice if necessary. Or add more dill – if that’s your thing!

Creamy Greek Yogurt Lemon Dill Sauce

When you’re ready to serve, remove the skin of the salmon by sliding a spatula between the skin and salmon flesh and gently slide it forward. The skin will usually easily separate. Go slowly so you don’t break the salmon flesh. Plate it up, pour some yogurt sauce over it and enjoy.
