Pizza Dip

Pizza Dip

I love to find a new appetizer recipe and make it for dinner.  Not only is it usually pretty easy, but the kids love having something different and I like to try out the recipe before I’m asked to bring a little something with me anywhere.  This pizza dip, found at Closet Cooking didn’t disappoint. 

Pizza DipOoey gooey, cheesy goodness popping with flavor from the pepperoni, served on top of garlic-rubbed French bread.  And hey!  With the green peppers, I can say we had a vegetable with dinner, too!


  • 4 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella, grated
  • 1/4 cup parmesan, grated
  • 1 cup tomato & basil pasta sauce
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella, grated
  • 1/4 cup parmesan, grated
  • handful pepperoni, sliced
  • 1/4 cup green pepper, sliced
  • 1/4 cup black olives, sliced
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms


Preheat oven to 350

  1. In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese, sour cream mayonnaise, 1/2 cup mozzarella and 1/2 cup parmesan then spread it across the bottom of a pie plate.
  2. Spread the tomato basil sauce on top then sprinkle on the remaining cheeses, green pepper, mushrooms, olives & pepperoni.
  3. Bake about 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden brown.

Thanks for sharing the recipe!
