Last week I showed you how to make some quick pizza crust dips for dipping in your homemade pizza crusts. So simple to make and more tasty than the shop bought versions or those little tubs of sauce you get from takeaway pizza shops. There is one of these sauces I absolutely love though and that's Papa John's honey and mustard dipping sauce. It's incredible and always my first choice when we order in. Imagine my delight when I discovered this recipe for making your own version at home and let me tell you it is exactly the same. I couldn't believe it!

If your giving my homemade pizza a go tonight or even if your ordering in make yourself a big batch of this sauce today. It will take you ten minutes tops to make and my recipe below should leave you with enough left over to store in a sterilised jar in your fridge ready for next time, saving you time as well as the pennies!

Honey and Mustard Dip

2 Tsp Plain Flour
4 Tbsp Runny Honey
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
4 Teaspoons Dijon Mustard
1/2 Tsp Onion Salt

  1. Add 120ml of water to a saucepan and whisk in the flour until there are no visible lumps.
  2. Turn up the heat to medium and add in the honey. Whisk slowly but continuously until the mixture comes to the boil. Remove immediately from the heat.
  3.  Straight away, add in the lemon juice, mustard and onion salt. Whisk until everything is combined and smooth and then leave to cool before serving.

If you want to store your sauce for a later date then wash a jam jar in warm water before placing in a hot oven for 5 minutes to sterilise the jar. Tip in the sauce and seal tightly. It should keep for around 1 month if left unopened, two weeks in the fridge once opened.

The mustard flavor is quite strong when the sauce is warm so if you taste it warm and think it's too punchy do not worry. Once the sauce cools the flavors meld and mellow together into the delicious smooth dipping sauce you will be familiar with.

Together with the garlic mayo and sweet chili sauce you now have a trio of fantastic dipping sauces for your homemade pizza crusts. All quick, simple and most of all delicious! 

Pure Pizza Perfection!

  1. Not sure if you monitor this blog still or if anyone else has tried this, but if the mustard is a tad too strong like it was to me, I only did 3 1/2 as well as 1/4 of the onion salt.
