I don't like tweeking recipes but I did on this one and it turn out really good. I added italian seasoning, garlic powder, and about 3 ozs of sour cream to the cream cheese and mixed it and followed the recipe to the "T" for the rest of it. Excellent!!! Will make again but I will double.
This is a good recipe. I usually use ricotta chesse in this recipe but I decided to use cream cheese instead. The cream cheese seemed to make the recipe too rich. I think I'll go back to the ricotta cheese.
I like to blend dried basil and oregano in with the cream cheese to give this dip extra flavor.
This was VERY good (but not to nice to look at)! I halved the recipe, eliminated the olives, used onion powder in place of minced onion. Since I was making this as an after school snack I decided to heat in the microwave on high for 4 minutes. It was so gooey and stringy! The only thing I noticed was it got cold fast and got very thick. I reheated a few times, but it didn't matter as it disappeared fast!! I served it with focaccia wedges.
After reading other reviews, I was torn between whether to mix the cream cheese and pizza sauce in a blender or layer. At first I decided to follow the recipe exactly, but I was afraid that people would bite into nothing but pizza sauce. I removed the combo and placed in a blender and got a pretty tasty sauce. I added the ingredients on top. The biggest recommendation that I have is to not completely cover with mozzarella cheese...just lighly sprinkle instead. This is because once the cheese cooled, it formed a hard layer on top that was hard to dip. As much as i love cheese it's best to keep it spread out where it doesn't clump together. I baked garlic bread and sliced into cubes for dipping, which was really tasty.
This dip was VERY good and it was so simple to make. I made it for a party and a week later was asked to bring it to another party. It's really yummy. I served it with tortilla chips
This is a family favorite of ours. It can be gobbled down in about 2 mintues. My niece and nephew always ask for this as an appetizer. We love using fritos scoops for the dip.
I used reduced fat cream cheese, homemade marinara sauce I'd defrosted from my freezer (The Best Marinara Sauce, which is also from this site), I doubled the pepperoni and I used Tillamook's italian cheese blend. This was a quick dip I could mix up and throw in my mini-crockpot before our morning errands and have it be done right as my boys were getting hungry. They loved having dip-able pizza and I liked it because it used on hand pantry ingredients. I served it with day old baguettes I bought at Fred Meyer from the discount rack for super cheap.
