Pizza Dip + Katie’s 30th

Last Saturday was my friend Katie’s 30th Birthday bash.  I wanted to bring something fun, yummy and easy.  I relied looked on my ‘Pinterest’ board for inspiration and found a pizza dip recipe. I was curious as to what the heck it consisted of; would it be a thick layer of pizza sauce with a slab of cheese? I looked at the ingredients and found it contained a mixture of sour cream and cream cheese.  
I decided to alter the recipe a bit. It called for 1/4 of Mayo; I used Light Miracle Whip and less than half of what it called for. I added a slightly bit more sour cream to make up for it (light sour cream)
In the base; I added cut up pepperoni, diced black olives, green peppers, hot sauce and garlic powder.
I threw it in the over for 20 mins and it smelled amazing!

 You can find the recipe I altered {here} or see below
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella, grated
  • 1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan), grated
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella, shredded/grated
  • 1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan), grated
  • 2 ounces pepperoni, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons green pepper, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons black olives, sliced
  1. Mix the cream cheese, sour cream mayonnaise, mozzarella and parmigiano reggiano and spread it across the bottom of a pie plate.
  2. Spread the pizza sauce on top and sprinkle on the cheese, pepperoni, green pepper and olives.
  3. Bake in a preheated 350F oven until the sides are bubbling and the cheese cheese has melted and turned golden brown on top, about 20 minutes

* I was so excited/in such a rush I forgot to take a picture of the finished product.  But let me tell you, the smell that filled my house was amazing and it took everything I had in me to not keep the bubbling cheesy dip for myself.
I packed up the hot dish in a to-go thermal bag and headed to the Clingan’s house.
Everyone seemed to really like the dip.  I served it with little slices of french bread but crackers would work just as well.  I did notice that it wasn’t as tasty when it was cold.  I would suggest if it is going to be out for an extended period of time to heat it back up a little.
Overall I loved this recipe and will definitely make it again if I need something fun and universally liked.
