Game Changing Spinach Artichoke Pizza Operates As Both Pizza AND Dip

When the holidays roll around, Rose City Pizza owner Brian Nittayo is in full spinach artichoke dip mode. A popular dish among his family, Nittayo would constantly get requests days prior to family get togethers for his take on the classic app.

At the last party, the pizzeria owner wondered what would happen if that dip came in some kind of pizza form.

From that stray thought, The Dip Pizza was born.

Rose City’s pie features spinach, artichoke hearts, garlic cream sauce, mozzarella, Parmesan, and is topped with colorful tortilla chip strips.

The idea was that the pizza crust would act as a giant chip, ferrying the contents of a gooey party app directly into your mouth.

You can either enjoy the pie by the slice or grab some tortilla chips and dip directly onto its savory surface as if it were its own party bowl.

The Dip Pizza can be found at Rose City Pizza in Rosemead, CA. It’s also home to the viral Al Pastor Pizza that comes straight from a spit. Between this and the spinach artichoke dip pie, I’m excited to see what this spot comes up with next.

This Restaurant Reimagines ‘French Onion Soup’ As A Mouthwatering Burger


French onion is hands-down one of our favorite soups of all time. The dish is made typically from a beef stock and an onion base. The soup is topped with a giant crouton or a slice of bread and finished with a topping of gruyere cheese.

Imagine a world where the intense flavors of the onion-based broth were incorporated into another savory dish: the hamburger.


The Stand, a newly opened fast casual restaurant in Irvine, CA, does a pretty unique take on the classic French dish. Patrons can order the French Onion Soup Burger which features a hefty beef patty, a double parmesan crusted bun, gruyere cheese, red wine braised onions, and crispy onion strings.


After a traditional French Onion soup is made, the onions are removed, strained, and placed on the assembled burger with crispy onions as a contrast. The soup itself is served on the side as an au jus-like dip to enjoy your burger with.

Kind of a brilliant way to have you soup and eat it, too.

You can find the burger at the Stand located on 5633 Alton Pkwy, Irvine, CA.

How To Make Wendy’s Value Menu Right At Home


Brothers Green Eats, the guys behind creating the entire Taco Bell Menu at home, are at it again with yet another fast food menu. This time, it’s Wendy’s delicious value menu.

Well, part of it anyways.

While they’ve only released “Part 1” of the Wendy’s series, the two guys tackle quite a few popular items from the inexpensive fast food menu. This includes dipping sauces (BBQ, Ranch and Honey Mustard), Chicken Nuggets, the Spicy Chicken Go Wrap and the Value Chicken Sandwich.

Guess they wanted to get all the chicken recipes out the way.

We expect to see them make a Frosty and possibly Wendy’s famous chili in the follow up, which we’ll update the article with once it drops.

This White Bean Tuna Melt Dip Recipe Is Oozing With Awesome

Looking to switch it up from the usual chips and salsa? Luckily we’ve got creative minds like Janey Schafer (@foodsofjane) to come up with new and exciting ways to entertain our stomachs, especially while sticking to a budget.

With her amazingly easy-to-make White Bean Tuna Melt Dip, she takes advantage of convenient canned tuna, canned white cannellini beans, and canned roasted and peeled mild green chiles to create a warm gooey dip to melt in your mouth with a touch of heat to give your skin a nice, healthy glow. It’s like a recipe for a mini beach getaway in a can, except less expensive and without the sunburn!

To make the sauce, combine the tuna, cannellini beans, and chiles with Greek yogurt in a food processor for 20 to 30 seconds, or to your preferred texture. Then pour the dip into a 9×9 inch baking pan. Two cups of shredded cheddar cheese will add the finishing touch. Broil the dip to perfection until it’s brown and bubbly (around 5 minutes), and proceed to exercise your dip-dunking privileges with pita chips, chopped veggies, or anything else that’s edible.


White Bean Tuna Melt Dip

Serving Size: 6-8

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

1 12 oz can of chunk light tuna in water, drained

1 15 oz can of white cannellini beans; rinsed and drained

1/3 cup of Greek yogurt

1 5oz can of mild green chilies (roasted and peeled)

1 teaspoon of pepper

2 teaspoons of salt

2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese

Pita bread for dipping

1)   Preheat the oven to a low broil setting.

2)   Combine dip ingredients in a food processor and blend for about 20-30 seconds. For thicker texture, blend less, for a smoother dip texture, blend longer.

3)   Fill a 9×9 inch baking pan with the dip and top with a generous 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese.

4)   Broil the dip until the cheese on top is slightly brown and bubbly, just like a pizza. (about 5 minutes) Keep a constant eye on the dip because dishes burn easily under the broil setting.

This Restaurant Chain Is Serving CHURRO S’MORES On The Menu


Earlier, we reported that Applebee’s would be doing a Taste the Change Day event where they will be giving away 2 million appetizers for free.

As a way to introduce two new appetizers, the restaurant will be promoting them HARD. Among them was the Churro S’mores. Cinnamon-covered churro twists are served with a warm chocolate and marshmallow dipping sauce. Think of it as a semi-decontructed s’more.

If you’re excited to try it and the new Sriracha Shrimp dish, head over on July 21 to get your free samples.



This Guy Took Scientifically Gassy Foods And Made One FART-INDUCING DIP Out of Them


For no reason other than to ruin fancy parties, food writer Dannie Ree (Dennis Lee) boldly attempted to create the perfect Fart Dip. Yes, fart dip aimed to purposely muster the perfect amount of gas to create the most awful of smells.

Ree used ingredients like cabbage, sour cream, caramelized onions, prunes and butter beans; all of which are known to contribute to flatulence. To no one’s surprise, the result ended up tasting like “thick vomit” as Ree describes.


The food writer stated that the nasty flavor was mostly from the caramelized onions. However, mixing it with the sour cream and other ingredients really contributed to the awful taste.

While unsuccessful (he farted, but not as much as he hoped for), Ree doesn’t let this deter him from creating more fart dip. In fact, he only thinks of this as the first step of many. The entire recipe cane be found on Ree’s blog.

Here’s How To Make Lobster Artichoke & Seafood Dip [WATCH]

Where sea meets land, a quotation directly from Katie Quinn’s newest recipe video, is an excellent description for something we’d love to do: combine the best oceanic crustacean with the American-appetizer-staple that is the Artichoke Dip. Throw away your packaged dip mix and step up to the big leagues. For you. For the people you love. But mostly for you.

As a bonus, the same video features two additional recipes for Lobster Alfredo Linguini and a Roasted Maine Lobster Bake. We know you have someone to impress. Godspeed.

A French Dip Thickburger Is in Testing Stages at Carl’s Jr.


Looks like Carl’s Jr. is claiming a stake in the French Dip game. According to Brand Eating, a Carl’s Jr. location in Stevenson Ranch, Calif., is testing a new Thickburger dubbed the French Dip.

The French Dip Thickburger is made with roast beef that’s thinly sliced, a charbroiled 1/2 pound beef patty, horseradish sauce and a slice of Swiss cheese. It’s squeezed between two of Carl’s fresh-baked buns and served with an au jus dipping sauce. The French Dip will join the existing Memphis BBQ Burger and Philly Cheesesteak Burger if successful.

Carl’s aficionados may remember a similar French Dip item at Hardee’s back in 2009. It looks like the Carl’s variation may be a slightly updated version.
