"This is my favorite recipe to bring to appetizer parties. It is so yummy when spread on some crusty french bread. I guarantee all of your guests will love it and you'll come home with a plate that was scraped clean!"

"I made this for a Halloween gathering that I held last night. It went down very well for the really little effort that went into preparing it. As others suggested, I added 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder and that worked very well. I served it with Ritz crackers and home made garlic bread. Made for I Recommend Tag."
"Ok, I must admit, I was kinda skeptical with this one, but decided to give it a try. I didn't have mozzarella, so I used mexican blend. It was so good. I served it with Warm Pita Chips and everyone loved it. I had some left over italian dressing powder so that is what I used in the cream cheese, and I am glad that I did. It was just the right amount of tangy and yummy. Thanks for sharing!!"
"I made this for our ladies poker group and we all loved it! I added some chopped pepperoni and I think I will bake it next time as the edges got hard from microwaving. Thanks!"
"this was so, so, SO very tasty! this was the first time that i failed to read the reviews before making the recipe, so i do wish i would have added some garlic .. but there will INDEFINITELY be a next time, for that. i'm already scheming over dippers... pineapple chunks rolled in ham, cut-up pepperoni sticks, red and green peppers, cubed garlic texas toast, stuffed olives.... the possibilities are exciting! thank you!"
"This is so delicious! I cant believe how easy it is and the taste is great! I served with toasted bakery bread, YUMMM!"
"perfect. I made this because my DD said she wanted "pizza". I had all the ingredients for this so made it instead. yummy. I added minced olives on top. Served with crackers. Thanks for sharing Chef Doozer."
"i loooved thi recipe, so yummy and easy! i didn't have italian seasonings so i used pepper and oregano, and also i didn't layer it the same, for me it was: cream cheese - spices - mozarella cheese - pizza sauce - parmesan cheese AWESOME recipe"
"This had a great flavor, just like pizza, the only thing was it cooled offer very quickly and the cheese on top didn't stay "stringy"."
"Yum! What an easy appetizer to make, and it doesn't taste like it only has 5 ingredients. I will bring this to my next party!"
"I took this to our company potluck and the plate was wiped clean! It tasted much more "difficult" than the recipe was. A great little starter!"
"Family and friends ate this gone before anything else on the buffet! Simple and easy to make, didn't do any changes to it."
"I took this to a party last month and it was the most popular dish there. I have never gotten so many compliments, lol. This was delicious and so easy to make. I didn't have pizza sauce so I substituted some jar spaghetti sauce and added some extra oregano. It was still quite yummy."
"This was really good. I doubled the recipe and took it to a party. It was quick and easy to make."
"This is a hit at any party, very tasty!"
"I whipped this up for an impromptu gathering to watch Big Brother... it was easy to put together with things I had on hand. I've made a similar baked dip before, but since I had a lot of parmesan on hand, I decided to try this recipe, and it was great. I added in a layer of chopped pepperoni and I served it with corn tortilla chips. Very good, quick and easy-- thanks for sharing!"
"I wish I could add more stars!!! A definate hit. I added some minced garlic and served with premade breadsticks. This is the perfect party dip since it can EASILY be prepared ahead of time and refirgerated until ready to serve. EVERYONE wanted to know how to make it...THANKS!!!"
"This was very yummy. I think next time I will use a shallower dish, like a pie plate (as suggested). I served this with refrigerated bread sticks cut into 2 inch pieces sprinkled with parmesan cheese before baking."
"Excellent dip!! Its quick and simple and delicious! My 10 year old DD loves this. Thank You!"
"Great, great, great! I need a quick, inexpensive appy to bring to a last minute birthday dinner and this fit the bill. I used 2 pkgs of cream cheese, 1.5 cups italian cheese blend and a jar of pizza sauce. I threw in some Penzey spices, heated through in the oven and served with toasted bread and fresh bread wedges. I couldn't believe how many great comments I received about this uber-easy dip! I will definitely be making this again and again. PS- one of my friends says she serves this cold and subs chili sauce for the pizza sauce. Thanks Chef Doozer!!!"
"Add some pepperoni on top and SO DELISH!"
