Vegan Pepperoni Pizza Dip

Why does life have to be so complicated? Don’t you want to know? I mean, why do I have to punch in my 335-digit account number only to have the service rep ask me to repeat said account number when she gets on the line? Hmm? Things like this always baffle me. It’s why we need the simplicity of a thing like Vegan Pepperoni Pizza Dip in our lives.  At least that’s my story…and I’m sticking to it!

Vegan Pepperoni Pizza Dip - 20 minutes to make and only 7 ingredients!

Have you ever thought about the word Dip? I’m not saying you should, but then again, it is an interesting word.

If your husband does that to you, it’s kind of romantic. Unless he drops you, which is no fun at all.

If you’re around someone acting like one, it can be a drag.

If you don’t eat right, your energy can take one in the afternoon.

If you’re skinny, it’s fun to take one in a body of water. Oh, who am I kidding, it’s fun whether you’re skinny or not!

When it’s prepared right, they can be mighty, mighty delicious.

Yep. Dip is definitely an interesting word.

The ingredients for this Vegan Pepperoni Pizza Dip are pretty easy to throw together.

It's easy to spread that vegan cream cheese in the bottom of a dish when making this Vegan Pepperoni Pizza Dip

Fresh Oregano Leaves really takes this dip to the next level

That’s right. In the dead of winter I happen to have fresh oregano leaves. That’s because I have a little oregano plant growing in the house. Thanks to Shawn’s mom, Diane, I actually haven’t killed it yet.

I’m pretty proud of myself for that. Come to find out, plants like water. Go figure!

What I Love About This Vegan Pepperoni Pizza Dip

I know a lot of people think vegan food is either a) really difficult to make…or 2) not very tasty…or thirdly, some combination of the two.

This recipe blows all those theories out of the water! I mean, seriously, what could be tastier than a pepperoni pizza dip? And with only FIVE ingredients, this dip is SO easy to make. Within twenty minutes or so, you’ll know what I’m talking about.

So, this dish has it all. It’s super easy to make. It’s super tasty to eat. And it’s even colorful too — who doesn’t appreciate a little splash of red and green color on the dinner palate?

Ingredients
  • 8 oz container of vegan cream cheese softened
  • 10-15 fresh oregano leaves or 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 14 oz container pizza sauce
  • 8 oz package of vegan Mozzarella Shreds I used Daiya Mozzarella Shreds but Follow Your Heart is great too
  • 20 Vegan Pepperoni Slices I used Yves
Instructions
  1. Heat your oven to 375F.
  2. Spread softened vegan cream cheese in the bottom of a pie pan, spreading it across the bottom to create a nice, even base layer.
  3. Spread the oregano leaves (or sprinkle dried oregano) over the top of the vegan cream cheese.
  4. Next, pour the pizza sauce over the top and distribute evenly across the dish. Top with shredded vegan cheese. Finally, distribute the pepperoni slices as the final layer.
  5. Place the dish in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted.
  6. Serve with bread slices, crackers, or pita. I've even spread this dip over the top of my veggie burgers to make an impromptu Veggie Burger Parmesan sandwich. Yum!

  1. All I have to say is..WHAT?! I’m drooling over this biiiiig time!

    • Ahh, thanks so much Abby!! I KNEW this had the makings of an incredible vegan dip. We’re loving it. And seriously, try serving a little bit of this dip over your favorite veggie burger. It turns it into an instant Veggie Parmesan Sandwich. I’m loving it!!

  2. Works for me! And hooray for not killing your oregano plant. 🙂

    • Let me tell you, plants in my house normally enter at their own risk. Thanks to a little guidance though, they seem to be surviving. Like I say, it’s amazing what a little water can do!! 🙂

  3. Mind blown! This looks and sounds fantastic. Ah the account number repeating to every person/robot you’re transferred to is so frustrating! Luckily assembling this dip (totally a weird word) isn’t!

  4. Wow, this looks incredible!!

  5. Love your commentary on the word “dip” – I had totally forgotten about dip meaning someone who does something goofy! This looks so divine. I haven’t had vegan cheese in a long time. I think it’s time to get back to it!
