Gooey Pizza Dip

Pepperoni, tomatoes and olives dress up this cheesy baked dip. I serve it with breadsticks and wedges of baked Boboli. You can even prepare individual servings in ramekins if you like. —Kitti Boesel, Woodbridge, Virginia

    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.
