Football always means pizza in this house. One of our favorite frozen take home & bake pizzas are the DiGiorno Rising Crust pizzas.  They are better than delivery & faster too! These pizzas bake in around 20 minutes- the delivery guy usually takes at least 30 minutes, usually more on game day. Am I right? ;) Plus, you really can't get any fresher than hot from the oven!

When I heard that Walmart had our favorite frozen pizzas on rollback for just $4.50, I headed right over and picked up a couple of pizzas for the big games this past weekend...


My husband and son are both big time pizza dippers.  My husband's favorite thing to dip his pizza in is Ranch dressing.
So, I took his favorite dipper and jazzed it up three ways- Jalapeno Popper, Buffalo Garlic, and Creamy Avocado. 
All 3 recipes have just three ingredients each and start with a bottled Ranch dressing base.  I think I whipped up all 3 in about 15 minutes?  Easy, fast, and sure to please the game time crowd! :)
Game Time Pizza Dip Trio
by Frugal Foodie Mama
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: None
Ingredients 3 dips (about 1 cup each)
    For the Jalapeno Popper Dip
    • 2/3 cup of your favorite Ranch dressing
    • 2 oz of cream cheese, softened
    • 1/4 cup jarred jalapeno rings (I used hot- use the heat level of your preference)
    For the Buffalo Garlic Dip
    • 2/3 cup of your favorite Ranch dressing
    • 1 clove of garlic, minced
    • 1 1/2 tbsp hot sauce (or more or less depending on your heat level preference)
    For the Creamy Avocado Dip
    • 2/3 cup of your favorite Ranch dressing
    • 1/2 of a medium ripe avocado, cubed
    • juice of 1/2 of a fresh lime
    Instructions
    For the Jalapeno Popper Dip
    Add the jalapeno rings with a little of the juice from the jar to a food processor or blender and blend. Add in the cream cheese and Ranch dressing and pulse a few more times until well combined.
    Cover & refrigerate until ready to serve.

    For the Buffalo Garlic Dip
    Pour the Ranch dressing, minced garlic, & hot sauce in a small bowl & mix until well combined.
    Cover & refrigerate until ready to serve.

    For the Creamy Avocado Dip
    Add the avocado, lime juice, and Ranch dressing to a blender or food processor (be sure to wash it out after making the Jalapeno Popper Dip!). Blend until smooth and creamy.
    Cover & refrigerate until ready to serve.
    **Tip- To easily cube the avocado, simply cut the avocado half and remove the seed. You can easily remove the seed by stabbing it with your knife- it should just pull out. Hold one half of the avocado in your hand and slice vertically and then horizontally across the flesh of the avocado forming cubes. Be careful to not cut through the skin of the avocado! Take a spoon and simply scoop out the avocado cubes. :)

    Serve the dips along side fresh baked DiGiorno pizzas.
    Enjoy!

    All three of the dips were a HUGE hit with everyone... even baby girl! 
    My personal favorite was the Jalapeno Popper.  My husband loved the Buffalo Garlic.  And the Creamy Avocado was nice and cooling after the heat of the other two dips.

    I mean, seriously folks...
    So simple and easy and you are guaranteed to not miss a minute of the big game stuck in the kitchen whipping up game day munchies.
    And the new sauce & spices on the DiGiorno Rising Crust pizzas? WHOA. :)
