Pizza by itself is a food brought here by angels. It’s delicious – it’s a fact. Who can resist the chewy crust and ooey gooey cheese? And it’s so fun to personalize it with whatever tasty toppings you want!
One of our favorite pizzas is one of the classic pizzas; the supreme. I love the ground beef, sausage, onions, peppers, mushrooms, and olives. It’s the right balance of spicy meat and veggies. Now the next best thing to having actual pizza is a pizza inspired recipe my family loves.
My Supreme Pizza Garlic Knot Skillet Dip is a house favorite. Did you hear that? I heard the heavens open up as I typed the name of this. Yes, it’s that delicious! For this recipe, you will notice the pepperoni you see on a traditional supreme is missing. We don’t eat it, so we leave it off. Many people love it, so pile it on if you are in that group! And when I make this again, I will definitely add more cheese to up the ooey-gooey factor!
If you’re thinking it might be tricky making the garlic knots – don’t worry about it. It’s simpler than you think. You tie the pieces of dough like you will when making a pretzel. This Supreme Pizza Garlic Knot Skillet Dip is one that will please everyone. And it disappears fast!
