Sausage Pizza Dip

Serves 12

Here's what you will need:
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 pound sweet Italian sausage
1/2 large onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1 1/2 cup Italian cheese blend, divided
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 jar (14 ounces) pizza sauce
1 cup mini pepperoni
1-2 loaves bread for dipping

Heat the extra virgin olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, breaking it up into small pieces with a wooden spoon. Drain off most of the fat from the sausage. Reduce the heat to medium and push the sausage to the side of the pan. Add the onion and garlic to the center and cook until tender. Mix in the sausage and remove the pan from the heat.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.

In a bowl, combine the sausage mixture with the cream cheese, 3/4 cup of the mozzarella cheese, 3/4 cup of the Italian cheese blend, and oregano. Spread this mixture evenly into the bottom of a 10x8-inch baking dish. Top with the pizza sauce and a sprinkle of mini pepperoni reserving about 1/4 cup to garnish the top. Top the pizza sauce and pepperoni with the remaining cheese. Finish the top with the remaining mini pepperoni.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30-35 minutes*. Remove the foil and turn your oven to broil. Cook an additional 5 minutes.

Serve hot with sliced bread.

*You can prepare this in advance and refrigerate it overnight. Just increase the bake time to about 45 minutes.

    Ok, I need some spring-print fat pants now. Perhaps a tasteful floral with elastic waistband.

    Any other dippers you can think of besides bread? I love bread but it doesn’t love me. This dip would be a luscious addition to my menu for an Italian Valentine’s dinner date in my living room. I have seen cheese cups made in muffin tins, is there room for more cheese in this recipe? (leading question)…

      Hmmm. That’s a tough question. I’m not sure if I’d pair it with more cheese, but if that works for you – it might do the trick. Is gluten the issue? Are their gluten-free chips or crackers that would work for you? Rice cakes? Another option might be to leave out the pepperoni and use sliced pepperoni to dip. You could also use celery and bell peppers. I hope that helps or at least stirs up some ideas.

    Would it be wrong if I made this and then just…you know…ate it with a spoon? Haha!
