Equipment

  • Oven

Ingredients
  

  • 1 8 oz pkg cream cheese softened
  • ½ c sour cream
  • ½ lb ground Italian sausage cooked
  • ½ c diced bell peppers (green, red, yellow, or combo)
  • ½ c mini pepperoni slices
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 ¼ c pizza sauce
  • 1 ¼ c shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Additional ingredients for topping optional
  • Grated Parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes optional
  • Toasted baguette slices*, pita chips or crackers for dipping

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • In a medium sized bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, sour cream, cooked sausage crumbles, diced peppers, pepperoni, garlic and Italian seasoning until combined.
  • Spread the mixture into a greased pie plate (or small rectangle pan).
  • Spread the pizza sauce over the cream cheese mixture and then sprinkle the cheese on top.
  • Top with additional pepperoni slices*, crumbled sausage, or whatever pizza toppings you desire! (*Don't get too wild on the pepperoni slices....too many will make the top look a bit greasy)
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the outer edges are bubbly.
  • Top with grated Parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes, if desired.
  • Serve warm with the toasted baguette slices, pita chips or crackers. Yum!

Notes

*At many grocery stores, you can purchase these ready to be dipped!  However, if you'd like to make your own, here's how!
  • Preheat oven to 375F
  • Cut a baguette into ¼ inch slices and lay on a baking sheet lined with foil
  • Brush olive oil (or vegetable oil) on both sides of each baguette slice
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until they're slightly golden brown
