With the Superbowl this weekend, trust me you are going to want this recipe. I am a pizza lover, it is one of my absolute favorite foods. I could easily eat it everyday. Making pizza dip was a no brainer, I just had no idea how damn good it would be. This is dip is amazing plus it takes like 5-10 max to whip together. It really tastes just like a supreme pizza. We served ours with pretzels thins which tasted fine with it but they were hard to dip. You could also serve this with crostini because towards the end we just started spooning it on our pretzels. The crostini might hold up better or try and find skinny breadsticks that would also be great!

- 1 8 oz package cream cheese
- 1 small jar marinara sauce (i really recommend Raos)
- 1/2 cup thinly sliced mushrooms (I used baby bellas)
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
- 1/4 sliced black olives
1/4 cup sliced green Spanish olives
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella
- sliced fresh mozzarella
- Italian seasoning
- crushed red pepper flakes
In a round baking dish spread the cream cheese on the bottom. Layer with about half the marinara. Then layer on half the mushrooms, bell pepper, olives and pepperoni. Sprinkle with the shredded mozzarella. Layer another layer of the marinara (I did not use the whole jar because I was afraid it might get too soggy but I used almost the whole jar). Then layer on the layer of fresh mozzarella and top with the remaining olives, mushrooms, bell pepper and pepperoni. Bake at 350 degrees about 20-25 minutes til bubbly. Let this sit out 10-15 minutes before serving too cool slightly. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and fresh crushed red pepper before serving.
If you don't have a round baker, these three options are great. I use mine all the time for dips.
