This Homemade Domino’s Pizza Garlic Herb Dip is so easy to make and tastes like the real deal, with a fraction less of the guilt.
I recently saw all these articles about how secretly unhealthy the Domino’s garlic and herb pizza dip is, and was pretty shocked. Surely it would be possible to make a similar dip at home without inducing a heart attack in its consumers? And I was right!
All I did was look up the ingredients in the dip, then recreate the flavours at home. I used blended cashew nuts, as I love how deliciously thick, rich and creamy they get. It makes the perfect base for a creamy dip. If you can’t be bothered with blending cashew nuts, you can substitute with shop-bought mayonnaise (vegan or otherwise), and that would also work pretty well I think.
Then all I did was add some ingredients such as raw garlic, vinegar, agave, lemon juice, mustard, chopped parsley and a pinch of salt and pepper. It’s also accidentally vegan, gluten-free and even oil-free too.
One taste and I was instantly reminded of Domino’s – it was incredible! This dip is delicious not just with pizza but also with other things like nachos, quesadillas, enchiladas, burgers, vegetable crudités, grilled cheese, sweet potato fries, or spread on toast (would be particularly good with sliced radishes on top too).
