Pepperoni Pizza Dip

Pepperoni Pizza Dip - 5

I hope you all had a great New Year’s! As for me, I’m still sick – as soon as I got over my virus from last week, I was bombarded with a nasty ear infection and a cold…not at all the way I was hoping to ring in the new year. Since I wasn’t feeling well, hubby and I played it low-key and stayed in on New Year’s eve and spent a quiet evening together. We ordered out for dinner, but I did manage to drag myself into the kitchen to make this pizza dip so that we’d have something fun to snack on. I didn’t have any crusty Italian bread on hand, which is what I thought would really go well with this dip…so we just used tortilla chips and it was just as good. It’s very easy to make, and you can also prepare it a few days ahead of time and store it in the fridge until you’re ready to bake it. Don’t be afraid to change it up and add in your favorite pizza toppings – sausage, mushroom, pepper, pineapple – whatever your heart desires. Here’s to an extraordinary (and healthy!) 2011!

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a greased baking dish (I used a 7″ soufflé dish), layer the cream cheese, pizza sauce, cooked onion, garlic, pepperoni, and cheese, in that order.

  3. This looks great! My kids and I make something similar, they love it! My sister makes with just cream of mushroom soup, cream cheese, chopped pepperoni and FR bread (It is so good that I imagine away all the calories!) My extended family goes crazy for it!
    Get and stay well in 2011!!

  7. This one screams SUPER BOWL to me! Looks like I just found my new game day dip. I can’t wait to try it with some homemade, crispy garlic bread toast rounds, or even garlic bagel chips.

  10. This looks great! I think I may need to give it a try – maybe using low fat cream cheese, since I think I could use a few lighter recipes during the next few weeks. 🙂

  19. Sounds amazing, will be making this for the football on Saturday. One question tho, does the garlic and onion cook nicely or do you fry them first? Annabel x
