As any basketball fan knows, we're well into March Madness and the NCAA bracketology. Before too long, we'll be heading down the road to the Final Four. And there's no better way to watch the games than with good friends and good food. Tired of the same ol' pizza delivery? How about delivering pizza DIP to your hungry NCAA fans?!

Our pizza dip is a layered masterpiece of perfection – smooth seasoned cream cheese, tangy tomato sauce, spicy pepperoni, and stringy mozzarella. Mmmmm. Sous chef Shelby and I promise it won't last long!

For the pizza dip, you will need:

  • 2 Tbsp. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tsp. sour cream
  • 3/4 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • dash garlic powder
  • 1.5 Tbsp. pizza sauce
  • 3 slices of pepperoni, diced
  • mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven for 15 minutes. Combine first four ingredients in a bowl; spread into pan. Spread on the pizza sauce. Top with pepperoni and a sprinkle of mozzarella. Bake for 15 minutes. Enjoy warm with corn chips or tortilla chips.

Here at Lightbulb Cuisine, we prefer the corn chips. The dense corn goodness makes a hefty scoop for our creamy pizza concoction. But don't just take our word for it. Try some of each!

That's Easy Baking!

Love, Cookie B.

Pizza dip and the BBQ chicken cheddar pockets would be a perfect game-time snack. Yum, yum!

Lidian said...

That sounds wonderful! And being easy too, that's a big plus for me! :)

Veriance said...

that looks delicious!

Debbie said...

I didn't have all the ingredients, so no pizza dip for me, but I did enjoy some Fritos tonight in honor, what was it? Oh, basketball.

Thanks for the idea! Next time hopefully I can go full-bore, dip and all.

Being new to EBO I will have to study and perhaps acquire some new equipment! However, here in SC we like to try innovative cooking methods! Thanks for the help.

Spectacular, Cookie! 3 whole slices of pepperoni, huh? LOL

Love it!

Candice said...

Yummy but I gave up pizza for lent. Would this count? Surely not. ;)

Cookie Brochette said...

Lidian--Yes, we're all about EASY here!

Debbie--No worries, there's still more March Madness.

JayRo--Glad to help out! And thanks for stopping by!

Diva--Are you thinking 3 pepperonis is too many? Try it with 2.5 if need be.

Candice--No, dip is a whole separate kind of food. Go for it!
