If you’re a big fan of garlic toast, this is the recipe for you. Drummond cooked up a delicious finger food recipe that she calls a “dream team.” Your guest will probably have a tough time staying away from this dish. “I’m kicking off with a dream-team mashup of pizza dip with garlic toast,” says Drummond on The Pioneer Woman show.

Drummond says she starts with “a creamy, cheesy mixture” for the dip. She uses cream cheese, ricotta, one cup of grated mozzarella, sour cream, oregano, salt, and pepper. Drummond uses store-bought grated mozzarella (or “supermarket mozzarella as she likes to say). She describes the pizza dip as a basic ricotta mixture, similar to what you would find in lasagna.

Drummond says if she had to pick her favorite food category, it would be what she calls “football food” or “game day food.” For her, that includes hot dogs, wings, nachos, dips, beer, and “all the good things in life.”

Preparing the pizza dip

Next, Drummond bakes the dip in an iron skillet. She says she builds the dip just like she would build the top of a pizza. She starts by pouring marinara sauce on top of the mixture. Then, she sprinkles mozzarella cheese. After that, she adds pizza toppings (pepperoni, diced green peppers, and black olives). “I love black olives,” says Drummond on The Pioneer Woman show. “They’re so decidedly non-fancy.”

Preparing the garlic bread

After making the dip, Drummond prepares the garlic bread. She uses garlic bread to make pieces of toast for the dip. “This thing is just going to blow you away,” says Drummond.

Drummond adds minced garlic and oregano to softened butter and mixes it. She spreads half of the mixture on each half of a loaf of French bread. She advises spreading the mix along the entire piece of bread. Drummond takes a moment to reflect on how good garlic tastes. “Why is garlic so darn good?” Drummond asks. “It’s just a magical mystery ingredient. I’m glad whoever discovered garlic discovered it.”

Drummond bakes the bread and dip at 450 degrees for 12 minutes. You can find the complete ingredients list and directions here.

Ree Drummond’s roasted garlic and four-cheese pull-apart bread

Another recipe you can try is Drummond’s roasted garlic and four-cheese pull-apart bread. The two basic ingredients for this recipe are white bread and soup. “It doesn’t get more everyday than this,” says Drummond on her show.

She starts by cutting the bread in a crisscross pattern, taking care not to cut the bread all the way through. Next, she makes the cheese mixture, which goes inside the bread. Drummond uses grated mozzarella, grated fontina, parmesan, and romano cheese. She then chops up some chives.

Drummond says you can also add Italian seasoning or sun-dried tomatoes for an Italian version. She also adds crushed red pepper flakes and black pepper. Drummond doesn’t add salt because the cheese already contains salt. Next, Drummond adds eight cloves of peeled garlic. You can see the full ingredients list and directions here.
