Baked Pepperoni Dip

This is one fabulous dip and absolutely perfect for game-watching or movie night.  And it couldn't be easier to put together.  It is so creamy and savory and, well, just so yummy.  I really lightened it up by using reduced-fat cream cheese, reduced-fat cheese, light sour cream, turkey pepperoni and served it with Baked Tostitos for a guilt-free football snack.


8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup sour cream
1 small can tomato sauce
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp basil
1 tsp minced garlic
dash of cayenne pepper
dash of salt
1 cup chopped pepperoni
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (or Italian blend), divided

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a small bowl, mix cream cheese, sour cream, and 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese.  In a separate bowl, mix tomato sauce, herbs, S&P.

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 tortilla chips, corn chips, or veggie sticks.

NOTE:  Bottle pizza or marinara sauce can be used instead of the tomato sauce mixture.
