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.
BAKED PEPPERONI DIP
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.
