Hot Pizza Dip

A couple days ago I started researching what new appetizers I could make for Superbowl Sunday. I decided to make this pizza dip tonight so that my husband and I could test it out and see how we liked it. Well, this one is topping the appetizer list! Warm cheesy goodness and the red pepper flakes gave it a nice little kick. We loved it and it was so filling that it ended up being our dinner.

Hot Pizza Dip
Adapted Slightly from AllRecipes.Com
Makes 16 servings
Cal 83, Fat5.7g, Carbs 2.3g, Fiber 1g, Protein 4.8g

1 package cream cheese, softened ( I used light)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (I used an Italian Blend)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup pizza sauce
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 ounces pepperoni ( I used Turkey Pepperoni)
2 tablespoons sliced black olives

Mix together the cream cheese, oregano, garlic powder, basil, and red pepper flakes.
Spread mixture in the bottom of a 9 inch pie plate, or casserole dish.
Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the cheese and 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese on top of the cream cheese mixture.
Spread the pizza sauce over all. Sprinkle with remaining cheese, then top with green pepper, pepperoni and olive slices.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. Serve hot with slices of crusty French bread, bread sticks, crustini, or tortilla chips. Enjoy!
