Sorry this post was a little delayed. Since I had to get up the Anderson Cooper Live post late last night, I wanted to give that post a bit of spotlight before I featured this amazing dip.

I first heard/had my first sampling of pepperoni pizza dip when I went to a friend’s Stella & Dot trunk show party. She had a huge spread of apps, dips, drinks, cheese, olives – so much stuff! But I was that girl that hovered over the pepperoni pizza dip like I owned it. I pretty much could’ve just taken the entire casserole dish away and eaten it myself, cause you know, I’m such a healthy person. You guys, it was SO addicting. I knew I had to ask her for the recipe. She told me it was “super easy” to put together. Just cream cheese, cream of mushroom, and pepperoni.

I didn’t think that cream of mushroom would really fit in with this dip when I made it so I gave it my own spin by subbing sour cream for the cream of mushroom. This dip is not healthy, by any means, but it’s ADDICTING. I LOVE pepperoni pizza and it’s awesome that it can be made in dip form. You won’t even miss the pizza! I guarantee you that you should probably make a double batch if you’re having a bunch of friends over. It will go so fast and you’ll regret not having another batch.

The key to the super cheesyness is to use WHOLE MILK mozzarella. I can’t begin to tell you how much of a difference whole milk cheese is compared to low-fat or 2% cheeses are. Worlds different. Like game-changer. Obviously it’s not great for you to have whole milk cheese all the time, but c’mon, who really eats healthy during sports games, anyway? Indulge a little! :)

This dip looks awesome! And it think it could be easily converted to accommodate vegetarian guests - just substitute olives, green pepper, onions etc for pepperoni...Of course, I would also add the veggies WITH the pepperoni, for those of us who like supreme pizzas. Gonna try it with the marinara sauce on the bottom too. What a fantastic recipe - thanks for publishing it!!

Didn't you mention that your friend said "cream of mushroom" in this also?? The soup? 'Didn't see it on recipe. Thanks!!

Hi Paula, yes, my friend did say that. However, if you read one paragraph down, I also said: I didn’t think that cream of mushroom would really fit in with this dip when I made it so I gave it my own spin by subbing sour cream for the cream of mushroom.

Hope that helps :) enjoy this dip!
