This Pizza Dip Lets You Throw a New Kind of Pizza Party

Diehard pizza enthusiasts are likely well-acquainted with the struggle of sharing: Even if you order multiple pies, there never seems to be enough slices to go around for you and the crew. Enter Food Steez's pizza dip: It's got all the flavors of pizza, in somewhat more shareable, squad-friendly form. You can also use it as an appetizer to your main course of more pizza, because a tasting menu comprised of multiple pizza-themed courses sounds incredible. Go forth and watch the video to learn how it's done.
