One of my favorite days of the year is Super Bowl Sunday. At no other point in time is it possible to find so many amazing appetizer and dip recipes.
I can easily skip a main course entirely and make a meal out of an appetizer (or two) and a dessert. Which naturally means that on a day like Super Bowl Sunday I am in a state of food nirvana.This pizza dip is super simple and combines all of the crave-worthy flavors of a pizza without the need to toss dough, preheat a pizza stone, or bust out the pizza peel. An awesome compromise for the sake of dip.
Serves 8 to 10
8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup shredded mozzarella, divided
1 cup Parmesan cheese, divided
1 cup pizza sauce
2 oz. sliced pepperoni
2 tbsp. chopped green pepper
2 tbsp. sliced black olives
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Spread the cream cheese over the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate. Top with 1/2 cup of the shredded mozzarella and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese.
Spread the pizza sauce on top of the cheese, and then top with the remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese.
Top with pepperoni slices, chopped green pepper and sliced black olives.
