This dip is good for a Super Bowl party or any sort of entertaining/large gathering event. Found on: allfood.recipes/pepperoni-pizza-dip, where the poster labeled this as a “sinner meal” even in spite of lightening it up from her friend’s original recipe on her blog, Chow.com. Reason being that they thought it is good to be real with yourself that lighter does not mean light. Cheese and pepperoni are certainly amongst ingredients you want to be moderate with in your diet. So make this, eat it, and enjoy it - all while remembering that moderation is the guiding principle!

How to Make Pepperoni Pizza Dip

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat the oven to 375°F and arrange a rack in the middle.
  2. Place half of the mozzarella, half of the pepperoni, the cream cheese, ricotta, Parmesan, sun-dried tomatoes, salt, oregano, and red pepper flakes in a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Process until smooth, about 45 seconds (there may still be a few small bits of pepperoni).
  3. Transfer the mixture to a 9-inch pie plate and smooth the top. Evenly sprinkle with the remaining mozzarella and pepperoni.
  4. Bake until the dip is heated through and bubbling around the edges and the cheese on top is melted, about 15 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately with the ciabatta bread, breadsticks, or garlic bread for dipping.
