Recipe contest #2 – tastes like nitrates


September 21, 2012 by Emily Pergament

It’s ok, my mom submitted this recipe and she is a health nut, so I’m sure she’ll acknowledge that pepperoni isn’t the healthiest thing you can eat. Let’s break down her Pepperoni Pizza Dip.

Before mixing the ingredients:

I tasted this after I mixed it, and it was so good.

Apparently, we didn’t read the directions since we didn’t chop up the pepperoni; I’m sure it’ll still taste good. Before adding the mozz cheese:

And the finished product:

It looks and smells like pizza!

It’s really good. The seasoning is great. Rob says it’s too creamy, but I say it’s just right. This would be amazing on a toasted slice of baguette, but I did not have the foresight to buy that.

Jenn calls this the winning recipe, so let’s see.


Pepperoni Pizza Dip

by Jennifer, “Recipe given to me many years ago by a neighbor, Marty Irvin.”

1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. sour cream
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. red pepper flakes , optional
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 c. pizza sauce
1 (3 oz.) pkg. pepperoni, chopped
1/4 c. green onions, sliced
1/2 c. Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Mix cream cheese, sour cream and spices together. An electric mixer works best.
Spread in a 9 or 10 inch pie plate.
Spread pizza sauce on top.
Sprinkle with pepperoni and green onion.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
Top with mozzarella.
Bake 5 minutes more or until cheese is melted and dip is heated through.
This is the basic recipe but obviously you can doctor it up with your other favorite toppings. Black olives, chopped green pepper, onions etc.

    Another real good-looking one. Almost cheating though – what’s not to like about pepperoni or mozza? Heck I’ll eat them cold on crackers all day. No cooking required!

    Yes I acknowledge that pepperoni isn’t the healthiest thing for you. Everything in moderation my dear 🙂 I’m glad you liked it!
