Pepperoni Pizza Dip

We are half way through January!  I always feel like if we can get past that half way mark, we are doing good.  It’s no secret that Winter is not my favorite, especially once we get past the holidays.  The one thing that makes it tolerable is football!  There are some college games early in the month and then NFL playoffs carries us through the rest of the month.  And what is football without some good food like pizza, wings and dips.  This Pepperoni Pizza Dip checks two of those boxes at once!

Every year when we make our Super Bowl menu this Pepperoni Pizza Dip is on the menu.  It is one of only two appetizer that we ALL agree on.  I mean what’s not to like?  It’s a pepperoni pizza in dip form!

This dip is so easy to put together and can be done ahead of time.  I mix the ingredients together early in the day but it could be done the day before.  The key to mixing the ingredients easily is making sure your cream cheese gets to room temperature.  If it’s too cold, it will be a struggle to get everything mixed with the cream cheese.  Once I have the dip assembled, I put it in the refrigerator until I’m ready to bake it.

I named this “Pepperoni” pizza dip, but you could easily customize this to any pizza toppings you like.  I think adding mushrooms, peppers, olives and onions would be great, but that would quickly diminish this dip’s popularity with my crew.

Add this dip to your football food this weekend when we watch to see what two teams will end up in the Super Bowl!
