Ooey, gooey, cheesey goodness baked with pepperoni is a warm dip that’s like a slice of pizza on a chip! I don’t think there’s one thing about this dish that I don’t love!
Lately, the weather around here has been crazy and afternoon storms have been rolling in. That means my guys have been hanging out, doing some summer reading or better yet, having a few friends over. Either way, there’s always a snack involved. Last week, all of us were tired of the “favorites” so I needed to add something new. I’m glad I had a stocked pantry and fridge because this dish came together in no time flat! I think I’ve got a new favorite to add to my list…
If you're looking for a new snack dip, this baked pepperoni dip will fit the bill.

In a separate bowl, mix tomato sauce, herbs, salt and pepper.
Layer cheese mixture on the bottom of a baking dish or pie pan.
Spread tomato sauce over cheese mixture.
Sprinkle on chopped pepperoni.
Bake for 15 minutes or until bubbly.
Top with reserved 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and bake until cheese is melted.
Serve with corn chips or veggie sticks.
Bottled pizza sauce can be used if you have it on hand - I make my own since I always have tomato sauce in the pantry.To bring refrigerated cream cheese to room temp, heat a mug/small bowl of water in microwave for 1 minute. Open cream cheese packet, cut into squares and place on a plate. Put cream cheese into microwave along with the hot water and close door. Leave in for 1 minute - DO NOT turn microwave on. Cream cheese should be soft enough to work with after 1 minute.
