Reviews for Gooey Pizza Dip
"Well, gosh! I just was lookin round this website and I found these here snacks. I made them, an my hole family jess loved em! Wonderuss!"
"This was a big hit at a get together, there was quite an assortment of foods but this was the first dish emptied. I am not a big fan of pepperoni or olives and still really liked this dip."
"Not a drop was left after sharing this with our home group ~ every single one requested the recipe! I didn't have crushed red peppers so substituted cayenne pepper and it was fine."
"MY family loves this dip - the pan is always emptied. Not everyone like creamcheese so this is a great alternative to creamcheese based appetizers."
