Reviews forZesty Pepperoni Dip
"Yum! Made this exactly as written and I wouldn't change a thing! Great flavor and I think putting the pepperoni in the microwave made a big difference. Make this a few hours (or the day before) so the flavors can meld."
"Made this for movie night last night and it was a hit! I only used 1 packet of Italian dressing mix."
