I took this to a Christmas Cookie Exchange party, and had so many requests for the recipe, I went home and made 20 copies on my computer!! It is best with breadsticks or slices baguettes. A kid pleaser too!
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1⁄2 cup pizza sauce
- 1 diced green pepper
- 1⁄3 cup diced pepperoni
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 -2 sliced green onion
- Line a pie pan with cream cheese. Layer all other ingredients on top ending with green onion. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes.
- Note: These ingredients can be adjusted to your personal tastes. They can also be substituted with other items such as olives, sausage (browned and crumbled) or mushrooms.
I added a bit of basil and oregano to the cream cheese. Also threw on green olives instead of the peppers as my kids prefer that. Great recipe.
I left out the green peppers, cause we don't like them. I also just realized I forgot the green onions. With all that it was still great. I didn't want to heat up the kitchen so I just heated it up in the microwave for a few minutes. The cheese got all melty and the cream cheese was just right. I also just added some seaoning to a small can of tomato sauce because I didn't have any prepared pizza sauce. Yum, a keeper. Served with hard breadsticks.
This recipe is sooo easy to put together and sooo good, or at least, that's what I was told. I made this as an appetizer for my brother's birthday dinner but cut the recipe in half, since there were only five of us. Well, I didn't get one bite!! Not one!! Needless to say, when I make this for future gatherings, I'll probably have to double the recipe. I did add black olives and left out the pepperoni, only because I didn't have any and didn't have time for a trip to the store. Thanks for a great new addition to my appetizer repetoire.
