How to Make Hot Pepperoni Pizza Dip
I start by chopping up all my veggies first. For our version, I chopped up half a green pepper, half an onion, and half a cup of mushrooms. I also diced up 1 cup of pepperoni.
Then in a large bowl, mix your shredded cheeses, softened cream cheese, mayo, seasoning, and pizza sauce. Make sure everything is mixed together well and smooth. Then, fold in all of your veggies and pepperoni.
You can use a pie dish or any 1-quart baking dish. No need to grease the pan first, just spoon your dip into the dish and smooth it out evenly.
Then, bake at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes or until it’s heated through and the cheese is nice and golden brown on top.
Then dig in! It’s so addicting and tastes just like a pizza without all the carbs you get in the crust!
Substitutions for Easy Pepperoni Pizza Dip
You really can feel free to add or take away the toppings to suit your preference. Don’t like black olives? Leave them out! Want to add some banana peppers? Throw them in! Make your dip the way you’d want to make your pizza with your favorite flavors!
You can also change out the mozzarella and cheddar cheeses if you want for the cheese of your choice. I like to blend cheeses in most of my recipes, but feel free to use what you have on-hand.
