Game Day Eats: Ultimate Pizza Dip

You may or may not know about my fascination with pizza. From Pizza Fridays at work to ordering it once a week for dinner (though still searching for the perfect slice in Hoboken or Jersey City... recommendations welcome!) it seems like that would be enough. That is until I stumbled upon a life-changing recipe. This recipe has become a serious staple on our weekly football-watching Sundays and it's sure to make a major appearance on Superbowl Sunday. It's the Ultimate Pizza Dip - delicious and a crowd-pleaser to boot.

Ultimate Pizza Dip
1 pkg cream cheese (I use 1/3 less fat)
1 8oz can Red Pack tomato sauce
1 medium onion, diced
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Pepperoni (I use the turkey kind)
Black olives (if you'd like)
Dried oregano & basil


Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spread cream cheese in bottom of 9 inch pie plate
Pour tomato sauce over cream cheese
Sprinkle with basil & oregano (to your taste)
Sprinkle diced onion over seasoned sauce layer
Sprinkle cheese over top (generously!!)
Add whole pepperoni slices and black olives(if using...I didn't) on top
Bake for 20-25 minutes uncovered until cheese is brown and bubbly and looks like this...
Serve with Tostitos.
*For another twist add bell peppers or red pepper flakes

So what do you think? What are you doing, and subsequently eating, on Superbowl Sunday?
