Cheesy Pepperoni Dip with Pizza Crust Dippers
Pizza is a party staple at birthdays, weekend family nights, and yes, football games. My dip harnasses the cheesy goodness of your favorite pizza pie in a satisfying, make-ahead recipe. And by using America’s favorite pizza topping, every bite is worthy of excessive celebration.
Don't forget the make-it-yourself pizza crust dippers—they make it feel like you're eating a slice.

Hoagie. Sub. Grinder. No matter what you call it, one thing is certain: it’s filling and delicious! I could eat a tray of these sandwiches all by myself.

Buffalo Chicken Dip
Buffalo wings may be one of the best accidents that ever happened to sports food. The spicy and tangy buffalo sauce, mixed with cool and creamy blue cheese, is a match-up like no other. As a dip, these flavors melt together without the mess, leaving you plenty of time to watch the game (and those must-see commercials!).
