Last football season my daughter asked me to come up w/ a dip that everyone would love, including the children. So, I know the kids love pepperoni pizza, as do most adults and decided to make a kind of " pizza dip." I figured for the bread or crackers to be dippers, why didn't I just make little pizza dippers? So, that's what I did. I made 2, 1 for the adults, which I added red pepper flakes and 1 w/out the flakes for the kids. I'll have a picture soon.
