Pizza Dip | #SundaySupper

Today is a special day – it is the Sunday Supper team’s birthday! The Sunday Supper Movement is now 2 years old!!!
So we’re throwing a birthday bash, and it isn’t party fare without a good dip! So I’ve shared this simple pizza dip, that I am sure you will love.

Pizza Dip from The Foodie Army Wife

 

To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl, combine 8 ounces of Neufchatel cream cheese that is room temperature, with 1/4 cup mayonnaise and 1/4 cup sour cream. Beat those together until fluffy.

Grab about 4 ounces of pepperoni, and set a few slices aside. Give the rest a rough chop. Toss the chopped pepperoni, along with 1 cup of shredded mozzarella and 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese in the bowl. Stir it into the cream cheese mixture. (You can also add in some sliced olives, or diced onion or bell pepper.)

Spread the creamy mixture in a shallow baking dish. A tart or pie plate works perfectly.

In a small bowl, combine 1 cup of tomato sauce, 1/2 teaspoon each of oregano and basil, a pinch of salt and pepper, 1/4 teaspoon each of garlic powder and onion powder, and a teaspoon of lemon juice. Mix those together.

Spread the sauce over the top of the creamy mixture.

Top with an additional 1/3 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese and 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan. Place the reserved slices of pepperoni on top. Pop this in the oven for 20 minutes or until nice and bubbly.

Serve this with some chips or slices of nice bread. I used some hearty Italian herbed bread (a recipe I am sharing tomorrow!)

Allow the dip to set for about 5 minutes before serving.
