Recipe by Red Chef Mama
This dip is so yummy! I have tried others that I thought were good, but felt like they were missing something and it inspired me to come up with my own. Sometimes I will make this dip for dinner and serve it with toasted baguette slices. I add pepperoni to mine but I am sure you could add beef or sausage or even make it veggie if you prefer. If you are serving this for dinner it will serve 4 and if using as an appetizer it will serve 12 which is what I have listed the servings for.
- 16 ounces cream cheese
- 8 ounces sour cream
- 1 cup marinara sauce
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, divided
- 1⁄2 cup parmesan cheese, divided
- 1⁄2 teaspoon italian seasoning
- 1⁄2-1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
- 6 ounces pepperoni, chopped and divided
