Now this is simply amazing. We devoured this, Harrison included. I think I added a bit more shredded cheese than called for, but the more the merrier in the cheese department. Also, this reheats well. This was a delicious game day recipe with fritos. Serve hot!!!
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
8 oz. shredded mozzarella (I used Italian blend)
4 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/4 cups pizza sauce
Pepperoni, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium sized bowl stir together the cream cheese, Italian seasoning and garlic powder until well incorporated.
Spread the cream cheese mixture into the bottom of a 9 inch pie pan.
In a small bowl combine the mozzarella & cheddar, then sprinkle half of the cheese mixture over top of the cream cheese layer. Spread the pizza sauce over the cheese and evenly distribute. Top with remaining cheese then sprinkle the top with the pepperoni or toppings of your choice.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve with tortilla chips or fritos.
