Pepperoni Pizza Dip


This is a dip for all ages; and who doesn’t like pizza? It has simple ingredients and is super easy to whip up. Made up of all the things you love about pizza; gooey cheese, savory and crispy pepperoni and sweet pizza sauce. If you have a vegetarian in your life like I do, you can omit the pepperoni. I think finely diced peppers and onions would also be delicious on top.

Pepperoni Pizza Dip

• 1 8 oz package cream cheese
• 1/3 cup Sour Cream
• 1/3 cup Pizza Sauce
• 1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
• 1 Tablespoon Oregano
• 6 ounces Mozzarella Cheese, grated
• 6 ounces Cheddar Cheese, grated
• 8 ounces of pepperoni, sliced

Soften the cream cheese for 30 minutes on the countertop for easy combining. Preheat oven to 350 °. Using a mixer whip the cream cheese, oregano, Italian seasoning and sour cream until well mixed and light. Spread the cream cheese on the bottom of a 9” pie plate or a small glass Pyrex dish or in a disposable foil 9 x 9 pan. Ladle on the pizza sauce evenly over the cream cheese. Sprinkle 1/3 of the pepperoni over the top of the cream cheese and sauce. Sprinkle the mozzerella and cheddar over the top for the next layer. Place the remaining pepperoni on the top of the cheese. If the pepperoni is really large you will want to cut it into small bite sized pieces so it’s easy to eat! Bake for 20-25 minutes until cheese is bubbly and the pepperoni is cooked. Serve immediately with tortilla chips, bread, or whatever you prefer. NOTE: You can make this ahead up until the baking step. Place in the fridge with plastic wrap around it to protect it. Remove it from the fridge 30 minutes before you want to bake it.
