For those who haven’t experienced the wonders of pizza dip – imagine a gooey layer of garlicky, herbed cream cheese, then a layer of marinara sauce and green peppers, topped with mozzarella cheese and all your favorite pizza toppings. We like jalapenos! Toss the bowl in the middle of the table, give chips for dipping, and you've got one pretty amazing Super Bowl snack. When that bowl runs out, they'll cry harder than when their team loses.
8 ounce brick of cream cheese, room temperature
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon dried parsley
½ teaspoon dried oregano
1 14 oz jar pizza sauce
2 scallions, chopped
1/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
1 jalapeno, sliced (or any other toppings you want)
dash of paprika
Heat oven to 375. Mix the cream cheese with the garlic powder, Italian seasoning, parsley, and oregano. Spread in oven-proof dish. Sprinkle about a 1/3 cup of the mozzarella cheese and 1 tablespoon of the parmesan cheese on top. In a small bowl, mix the pizza sauce, scallions, and green pepper. Spread sauce mixture over the cheeses in the oven proof dish. Sprinkle remaining mozzarella and parmesan, then top with sliced jalapenos and a dash of paprika. Bake for 25 minutes.
