- PREPARE: Start by preheating your oven to 350F and spray down a 9-inch pie dish with nonstick cooking spray.
- MIX CREAM CHEESE MIXTURE: In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese and seasonings; spread to the bottom of the pie dish.
- ADD THE CHEESES: Next, combine the cheeses in another bowl and sprinkle half over the cream cheese.
- LAYER THE REST: Top the cheese with pizza sauce, half the pepperoni, and half of the black olives (or other toppings you’d like to use). Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Top the cheese layer with remaining toppings.
- BAKE AND SERVE: Bake for 20 minutes and serve warm along with garlic toast or bread.
DOES THE CREAM CHEESE HAVE TO BE SOFTENED?
Yes, absolutely! Having softened cream cheese is a MUST! You need to be able to spread the cream cheese evenly on the bottom of your pie dish.
You can either set the cream cheese out on your kitchen counter an hour before you ready to make this dip or you can place the cream cheese in the microwave for 10 seconds. (For me this is the best way to soften cream cheese FAST because I always forget to take it out of the fridge in time!)
WHAT ARE THE BEST TOPPINGS TO ADD?
Like I said before, you can just add cheese or you can load this pizza dip up with all your favorites. One of my favorites is to add chicken, mushrooms, and bacon…OMG, SOO GOOD!
CAN I MAKE THIS PIZZA DIP AHEAD OF TIME?
Sure can! You can make this dip ahead of time and then once your ready to serve it, all you need to do is bake it for 20 minutes!
WHAT DO YOU SERVE WITH PIZZA DIP?
I like to serve this pizza dip with garlic toast that I buy from the grocery store, but you can also serve it with breadsticks or even just tortilla chips.
