Ingredients

  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese divided
  • 1 cup finely grated parmesan cheese divided
  • 1 cup pizza sauce of choice
  • 15 pepperoni or more as desired
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic powder Optional
  • 1/4 tsp Italian Seasoning Optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • Spray a 9-inch glass pie dish with cooking spray.
  • If using seasonings (totally optional), stir them into the cream cheese in a small bowl.
  • Spread cream cheese in the bottom of the pie dish, as evenly as possible.
  • Spread half the mozzarella over the cream cheese.
  • Sprinkle half the parmesan over the mozzarella.
  • Cover with pizza sauce gently spreading it with a spatula or knife until all cheese is covered.
  • Add remaining 3/4 cup mozzarella over sauce and remaining parmesan over that.
  • Top with pepperoni slices.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until cheese has melted bubbly. Serve with dippers of your choice.

Notes

You can add the seasoning directly to the cream cheese for a little extra flavor, but you can skip this step and it still tastes great and keeps things simple. 
Use mini pepperoni and layer them throughout for a more pepperoni filled dip with more pepperoni in every bite. 
Serve hot, as this dip will change in consistency as it cools, and not be as spreadable. 
This dip does not freeze well. 
Garnish with basil or other Italian herbs when finished for a prettier dip. 
Serve with crusty bread, mini naan, french bread, veggies, crackers, chips, or whatever dipper you want. But keep in mind, a sturdy dipper is better for this dip as it is thick and cheesy.
