Hot Pizza Dip

Think of this as a pizza without the dough!  Combine all your favorite pizza ingredients in a hot dip and serve with taco chips, crackers or breadsticks. It is easy to prepare in advance and keep refrigerated.  And with New Year's Eve coming up...this may be just the recipe you need. 

  • 8oz / 250g cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 3/4 cup pizza sauce (your favorite...but we like it 'hot'!)
  • pepperoni, small pieces
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped (red, green or yellow or a combination of colours)
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  1. Blend cream cheese, sour cream and seasonings.
  2. Spread in a 9" pie plate or quiche pan.
  3. Spread pizza sauce over base.
  4. Top with pepperoni pieces and chopped peppers.
  5. Spread cheese over top.
  6. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and edges are golden.
