Enzo Di Pede (born January 3, 1957) is a retired Italian goalkeeper who played in the North American Soccer League and the original Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL).

Di Pede was a member of the MISL Champion New York Arrows as a backup goalkeeper in 1979–1980. Di Pede won MISL Goalkeeper of the Year honors in 1981 as a member of the Chicago Horizons and later played for the Kansas City Comets. On October 7, 1986, the Minnesota Strikers signed Di Pede, but he spent the season as a backup.

Born in Italy, he and his family immigrated to Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Di Pede idolized long-time Italian national team goalkeeper Dino Zoff as a young soccer player.

Di Pede led a series of youth soccer camps in Kansas City, Missouri, U.S. with several fellow MISL players. After retiring, Di Pede opened a bagel shop and catering company in Kansas City.
