Look at this glorious, wonderful, dip you all, it’s so good! With football season starting up again and pre-season games already happening, we’ve gotten so many requests for game-day recipes. We love a good game-day recipe. They’re some of the best recipes of the fall season.

This season, I’m really going to focus on sharing more dips since we don’t have many in our recipe library. Appetizers have never been something I’ve overly shared in the past, but I’m finally embracing them and having fun too!

I thought this simple dip up while I was out hiking last week. Yes, my most favorite recipes come to me in the morning while I hike.

I knew I had a lot of tomatoes on my counter that needed to be used up. They were very much on their last leg. Past their prime for eating fresh, BUT great for roasting!

I thought they could be so yummy if I turned them into a cheesy pizza-style dip with creamy burrata cheese and lots and lots of pepperoni and basil. So I did just that and all I have to say is, mmmm!

Here are the details

Step 1: roast the tomatoes.

I love to use fresh cherry tomatoes for this. They’re the perfect size and delicious when roasted.

Toss the tomatoes with olive oil, oregano, chili flakes, salt, and pepper. Then roast in the oven until they burst. Once they’ve burst, mix the tomatoes with your favorite marinara sauce. I love Rao’s or the Carbone marinara.

Step 2: mix the cheese

While the tomatoes roast, mix some cream cheese into the shredded provolone cheese. When the tomatoes are ready, dollop the cheese mix over the tomatoes, then finish with mozzarella and burrata cheese.

Bake this up until the cheese is super melty and the dish is smelling wonderful.

Step 3: serve and enjoy

Top the whole dish with fresh basil, then serve while warm and melty.

It’s everything you’d expect out of a fancy multistep recipe, but made in way less than an hour – and in one pot too. Simple, simple, gotta love that.

You can serve this up on busy weeknights, but it’s equally great for dinners with friends and family. I’m sure I’ll be remaking this over and over through the end of summer and into fall. Yum!

    I made this dip for my work superbowl “dip off” and it won! Loved this recipe and it was very easy to make. I made it the night before and wanted it to be warm so I transferred it to a crockpot to keep warm. It was perfect! Also, I didn’t bake the burrata. I waited to add the burrata until I put it in the crockpot. Thanks for this amazing recipe!

    This recipe is amazing!! I made it for a football party and everyone loved it!! I am planning to make this for a potluck party at work. Could this be made in the crock pot? I was thinking to roast the tomatoes first in the oven, but then put those and everything else right in the crock pot to cook. Do you think this would work? I just wanted to make sure people are able to eat it warm.

    1. Hey Christina,
      Amazing!! So glad to hear that this recipe turned out well for you, thanks for making it:) Sorry, I have not tested this in the crockpot, you could transfer it and keep it warm in there though! xT

  3. This recipe is amazing. I made it for my family and they flipped!! It is fairly easy and the roasting of the fresh tomatoes takes it to a different level!

  4. This was so delicious! Everyone loved it. Thank you for always creating the best recipes! Could you make any parts of the recipe in advance?

    1. I made the roast tomatoes, left them out on the counter wrapped tightly the night before we ate it. I also prepped the shredding etc the day before then just added everything before baking it right before I served it! It was fantastic!!

      1. Hi Tanya,
        Wonderful!! I love to hear that you enjoyed this recipe! Thanks so much for your feedback and trying the recipe! Happy Thanksgiving! xT
