It’s the healthier version of white pizza dip, but you don’t even realize it.

Really, you don’t.

Yep, you guessed it, even the brothers ate it.

They ate cauliflower!

Craziness.

Of course, they had no clue, but they ate it and that in itself is practically a miracle.

I do blame the cheese.

It’s SO cheesy.

So, so, so cheesy.

It’s the perfect football dip, healthified…. well just a tad.

I did say just a tad. I mean there’s a lot of cheese, but that’s never a bad thing in my eyes.

This is so adaptable too.

My favorite thing is adding in sun-dried tomatoes and then topping the dip with olives and pepperoni’s. Then when it comes out of the oven, immediately top with loads and loads of fresh basil.

So freakin’ good.

Oh, oh, oh and you could totally make this today for a last minute Labor Day dip. It’s super easy and everybody will love it!
