Pizza Dip

I am finally back from Michigan.  I am happy to be home. I am not so much in the mood to be cooking though.  Shhh...and don't tell Mr. J.  He will be all the ready to go out and nix my quinoa bowl with roasted veggies idea for dinner. 

Another dip I made for the office birthday celebration was pizza dip. This one wasn't super special.  Think cheese pizza. After all I was trying to please 45 different tastes.

I like it this way though the best.  Lots of cheese and some sauce.  Served with tortilla chips.

If you want to jazz it up a bit think pepperonis and olives.

Pizza Dip

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients (serves 8)
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese, sour cream, oregano, parsley, basil, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes.

Spread mixture in the bottom of a 9 inch pie plate, or a shallow microwave-safe dish. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese on top of the cream cheese mixture. Spread the pizza sauce over all.

Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover, and microwave for 5 minutes or bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.

Serve hot with baguette slices, tortilla chips, or Fritos scoops.
