Reviews for Pepperoni Pizza Spread
"I have made this more times than I can count. It is a fantastic appetizer and simple to prepare. There is never any left, and people always want the recipe. We serve it with multi-grain Scoops."
"I plan to make this this weekend - sounds sinfully delicious, would have given it 5 stars if not for my question: just counting the # of cups in the ingredients, the amount will come to waaaay more than the 6 cups printed. I will plan to use a 13 x 9 dish, if not larger. Any other similar observations about the amount?"
"We Have This Every Christmas"
"The best dip I've ever made. Everyone loves it!!"
"I have this recipe in a cookbook I wrote, and it's rated number 1 appetizer requested for parties! I brown my pepperoni to get some of the grease out and then drain it on papper towels. I also use Canola Mayonnaise for less fat. This is the best recipe ever!! Just ask the Coke girls in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin!!"
"I have made this recipe a couple of times and it was a hit. I am wondering though, if I have all the ingredients mixed up, can I freeze it and bake it later?"
"Make this all the time when we have guests over, or even when we don't. I have never changed a thing when making. Always a hit!"
"I have been making this since 2004, everyone loves it. I don't add the mushrooms. I also have chopped the onions, peppers, and the olives then freeze until ready to use, then add the rest of the ingredients and bake..."
"I make this recipe usually as a Christmas appetizer or for special events, and it's always a big hit."
"This recipe is excellent!!! I brought it to a party and it received rave reviews plus I was asked by several people for the recipes. One guest labeled it the "best of the appetizers" The reviews I read mentioned the greasiness of the spread. I solved that concern/problemby using turkey pepperoni. The spread had a good pepperoni taste WITHOUT the grease and fat. Besides being great tasting ... this spread is so easy to prepare."
"I use this for our Christmas Eve Party.Blot off the grease with a paper towel."
"Very Good!! Big hit at the party. Recipe was requested by many."
"This looks good,"
"This was really good and I did not have any trouble with it being greasy. It makes a ton!"
"Whenever you make something with Pepperoni, it's greasy. Just blot the grease off. This recipe is delicious. I've made it several times and everyone loves it."
"This is a neighborhood favorite! I omit or add pizz ingredients based on who I am making it for! It is cooked too long or the temp was too high if there are pools of grease. To solve that problem, place 2 folded paper towels on top for grease to absorb and remove carefully. YUMMY!!!"
"I made this for a family get together--it had pools of grease in it. It was too greasy for my family and went in the trash."
