Today is Boss Appreciation Day where my daughter Sara works. It's also 'bring a dish to pass' for lunch ... so she made up a Hot Pizza Dip.
Just thought I'd share a pic of it before she leaves the house with it this morning.
Here's the recipe. She got it from the Pampered Chef All The Best Cookbook:
HOT PIZZA DIP
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon Pantry Italian Seasoning Mix
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
3/4 cup (3 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
1 can (8 ounces) pizza sauce
1/4 cup diced green bell pepper, sliced green onions or chopped pitted ripe olives
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In Small Batter Bowl, combine cream cheese and seasoning mix; spread onto bottom of Mini-Baker.
2. In small bowl, combine mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Sprinkle half of the mozzarella cheese mixture over cream cheese mixture. Top with pizza sauce, spreading evenly. sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese mixture. Bake 15-20 minutes or until bubbly. Top with bell pepper. Serve with Toasted Baguette Slices.
Yield: 2 1/2 cups (20 servings)
TOASTED BAGUETTE SLICES
