Pizza Dip

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.

Pizza 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.
