Hot Pizza Dip
HOT PIZZA DIP
I got the all-clear to start working out from my doctor at my 6 week post baby checkup. I was so eager to get back in the gym and to start running again.
I jogged to the bus stop to pick up my son earlier in the week – an embarrassingly short distance, and was so sore the next day. So I knew I would have to take it easy and that my gym debut would be a brief one.

Hot Pizza Dip
This Hot Pizza Dip taste just like pizza with cream cheese, Italian seasonings, pizza sauce, and pepperoni!
- 1 (8 ounce package) cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 cup pizza sauce
- 2 tablespoons chopped green bell pepper
- 2 ounces pepperoni sausage, chopped
- 2 tablespoons sliced black olives
In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese, oregano, parsley, basil, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes.
Spread mixture in the bottom of a 9 inch pie plate, or a shallow microwave-safe dish. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese on top of the cream cheese mixture. Spread the pizza sauce over all.
Microwave the pepperoni for about 30 seconds just to get some of the fat out of them so you don't end up with a greasy mess on top of your pizza dip.
Sprinkle with remaining cheese, then top with green pepper, pepperoni and olive slices. Cover, and microwave for 5 minutes or bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. Serve hot with baguette slices, tortilla chips, or Fritos scoops.
Note: You can either cook this in the microwave or oven. If you wish to cook it in the oven preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
