Make pizza night even better with pizza dipping sauce for everyone! From garlic sauce to ranch dressing, your taste buds are in for a treat!
It’s time to celebrate the unsung hero of pizza parties and game nights—the glorious pizza dipping sauce. While pizza is undoubtedly delightful on its own, dipping sauces can take your pizza experience to a whole new level. These are some of the most popular dipping sauces, with plenty of options for everyone to find a favorite!
Pizza Dipping Sauces In This Post
Garlic Butter Sauce
My family’s favorite pizza dipping sauce is garlic butter sauce! Many pizzerias offer it as a dip, but it is easy to make as well. You can use this one on almost any pizza as well as garlic bread and breadsticks.
Ranch dressing is the second most popular choice in our family. The cool, creamy ranch dressing is the perfect complement to the spicy flavors on a pizza. This one is also great on taco pizza!
If you love your pizza with lots of sauce, go ahead and get some pizza sauce on the side to dip it in! Plus, it basically turns thick pizza crust into breadsticks. Some restaurants don’t add as much sauce to their pizzas as others do, and having some as a dip is a great way to eat it how you want it.
Many restaurants also offer a meat sauce in addition to their pizza sauce. It tastes similar to pizza sauce but has a meatier flavor and includes pieces of ground beef or sausage. Try meat sauce with pepperoni pizza, sausage pizza, and meat lovers.
Honey Mustard Sauce
Spicy honey mustard is fantastic on bacon cheeseburger pizzas as well as a chicken bacon pizza with garlic sauce. The sweet, tangy sauce contrasts with the meaty flavors on those pizzas.
The zesty, spicy flavor of buffalo sauce goes well with a chicken ranch pizza. The flavor is reminiscent of buffalo chicken wings. But for buffalo sauce enthusiasts, you can put this one on every pizza!
You can use Alfredo sauce as a pizza dipping sauce for lots of pizzas, from pepperoni to chicken alfredo pizza. Plus, we love this one on pizza sticks and Texas toast. We suggest making homemade alfredo sauce for the best flavor, but store-bought will work too.
The smoky, sweet, tangy flavor of barbecue sauce tastes great on pizzas! It’s most often used with pulled pork pizzas or Hawaiian pizzas. But you can also dip pepperoni pizza in it!
Blue Cheese Sauce
You can use blue cheese sauce to contrast the spicy flavors of pizzas made with barbecue sauce or pizza sauce. Plus, it can play up the flavor game of mild pizzas made with white sauce. Try dipping bbq pulled pork pizza into it.
And last but not least, we have cheese sauce! Pizza already has cheese on it, so why not dip it in cheese sauce? This one would go very well with macaroni and cheese pizza as well as cheeseburger pizza.
How To Serve Pizza Dipping Sauce
Put all of the pizza dipping sauces in larger bowls with spoons. Then, set out condiment cups so that everyone can fill the small cups with their favorite sauces. Be sure that your plates are large enough to hold slices of pizza and dips.
What Others Want To Know
That depends on the kind of pizza you are eating. For pepperoni pizza, the most popular choices are garlic butter sauce and ranch dressing.
Because it enhances the flavor of the pizza. Depending on the sauce you choose, it can complement the flavor, tone the flavor down, or add a new flavor.
Both! Some people like to dip their slices in sauce, and others only want it for the crusts.
Pizza is delicious enough to be enjoyed on its own, but it’s even better when paired with a flavorful pizza dipping sauce! Whether you’re hosting a pizza party or simply enjoying a slice at home, these sauces can take your pizza experience to the next level!

This looks SO good. I have to admit, I’m not into most dips because I don’t like mayo, but this is right up my alley!
