These cute Mini Pizza Dip Cups are cheesy and delicious! Perfect for your next party, game day or tailgate!
You guys. These Mini Pizza Dip Cups are ridiculous. Really, that is the only way to describe them. I mean, first you have pizza dip, which in itself is mind-blowing. It’s like pizza, but it’s a dip!! What!?! But then you take some wonton wrappers and bake them so they get crispy, then you fill them with creamy, cheesy pizza dip, then you bake them some more so that they get all gooey. I mean. Ridiculous. Right?
So this is a special day because not only are we talking about mini pizza dip cups, but it is also the one year blogiversary for Fox and Briar! I fully intended to make something sweet and celebratory to mark the occasion, but then I made these mini pizza dip cups and I seriously couldn’t wait to share them with you. And these are pretty celebratory in themselves. I want to thank you for reading this blog, whether it is your first time or you have been with me since the beginning. I can’t tell you how much it means to me every time someone reads, comments on or shares a post from my blog. This blog is a piece of me, and I can’t thank you enough for being a part of it.
Alright, lets move on from that cheesiness to another form of cheesiness. More specifically, three kinds of cheese, pizza sauce and pepperoni all wrapped up in a crispy wonton shell. Wonton wrappers are great for so many appetizers. I used regular sized muffin tins, so I used two wonton wrappers per cup, overlapping the corners so that all the edges are covered. We par bake the shells so that they can get crispy. Then we mix up some cream cheese with herbs and spices, top it with mozzarella and parmesan, and some pizza sauce. I used my all-purpose Easy 20 Minute Marinara, which is a snap to make. But you can use your favorite marinara or pizza sauce.
I really wanted to use mini pepperoni but I couldn’t find them at my store. So I improvised and I cut out my own mini pepperoni using the back of a frosting tip. Fussy? Maybe, but super adorable. If you can find mini pepperoni, use those! If you can’t find minis and you can’t be bothered to cut regular sized pepperoni into minis, you can just dice them into smaller pieces. But to be honest, cutting them into smaller circles really wasn’t hard or very time-consuming.
These Mini Pizza Dip Cups are going to be a hit at your next party. Having people over to watch football? Mini Pizza Dip Cups. Birthday Party? Mini Pizza Dip Cups. Game night? Mini Pizza Dip Cups. Tuesday? Mini Pizza Dip Cups. You get the idea.

Can you substitute egg roll wrappers?! Can’t get wonton
Hi Lori – I haven’t tried it but it would probably be fine! Eggroll wrappers are usually larger so you may need to cut them to be smaller.
Very tasty! All scooped up quick at a party!
So happy to hear that Sara!

Yay – one year is brilliant. And so cool to have something savoury not sweet to celebrate. These would steal the show at any party, but I’m thinking specifically at my next friendly get-together. And yes, I will cut those cute little pepperoni circles. BTW – not heard of using wonton wrappers before, but I’m liking it.
Thank you so much Jane! The extra step of cutting the pepperoni is so worth it, it is too cute!
