A friend gave me this recipe almost 20 years ago. My whole family loves it!!!! I omit the green onion and it is still delicious. In addition to the flavor, I love that it is made in the microwave.

I've been making this for years. It's in one of the Pampered Chef recipe books, I always serve with french loaf bread made in the Pampered Chef tins... very good

I made this for my friends. Huge hit! Served with breadsticks but they kept breaking. Luckily had scoops in the house. This is a keeper

I have made this dozens of times, topping it with all sorts of different things, the simplest being just a sprinkle or grind of Italian seasoning. I usually make 2 of these dips when I take it to a gathering. Always goes over well!

I have made this many times. Whenever I make this dip, it is a huge hit! I changed the italian seasoning to Presti's Pizza seasoning.I have made a Cheese Pizza dip, and many more variations of typical restaurant pizzas and no matter what kind it is, it always is gone in a flash! It's quick, easy and I have made it the night before many times with great success, just microwave right before serving!

I omit green pepper and onion because my kids don't like them and this still tastes great. It goes great with breadstick from a pizza place.
