Pepperoni Pizza Dip

While grocery shopping a couple weeks ago, I came across a bag of mini-pepperoni. Aren't they cute? They were just so adorable I knew I had to use them somehow! So, for the 4th I made this dip...

Pepperoni Pizza Dip

  • 16 oz. sour cream
  • 1 bag mini-pepperoni
  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 Tb Italian or Pizza Seasoning
  • 1/2 cup Spaghetti Sauce

  1. The directions are simple --- combine all ingredients in a microwave/oven safe container. Heat at 350 degree until warm and cheese is bubbly.

  2. I packed the dip in a microwave safe plastic container to make for easier traveling. {I saved back a little cheese and pepperoni's for topping!}Then just heated it in the microwave - 3-4 minutes, stopping to stir after every minutes.

  3. Note: Because of adding the sauce, it is a thinner dip. If you like really thick and chunky dips, I recommend mixing 8 oz softened cream cheese with 1 - 1 1 /2 cups sour cream; then add the rest of the ingredients. Adding the cream cheese and reducing the sour cream will make for a denser, richer dip.

The dip was a hit! It's great with crackers, chips, or toasted bread bites and is very versatile. Like olives on your pizza? Add in a handful! Can't get enough mushrooms? Add a handful!

I will definitely make this again. And soon.
