By now, it’s no secret that I have a thing for anything pizza! Whether that be calzones, deep dish Chicago pizza, thin crust, thick crust — you name it, I’m down!  I think it’s because I grew up on Domino’s Pepperoni Pizza? 

Anyways, is anyone else a BIG fan of the mozzarella + marinara combo?? For the longest time, I’ve been on the lookout for the perfect (simple!) Marinara dipping sauce, and we’ve made 8 different versions to date — and have landed on THE ONE!

This Simple Marinara Dip uses 7 staple ingredients and is SO flavorful! Honestly, the PERFECT dip for mozzarella sticks, pizza bites, and so much more! Gluten-free and vegetarian (+ can be made dairy-free and vegan!)
