Pepperoni pizza dip perfect for a casual party or game day appetizer. There’s enough to share (or not)! I serve mine with baked pizza crust chips.
Pizza Crust Chips:
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2) In a large skillet, add olive oil over medium-high heat. Add diced onion and green pepper and cook for a few minutes to soften. Then add most of the pepperoni (reserve some for topping) and pizza sauce. Simmer ingredients together for a minute or two and then remove from heat.
3) In a 1 1/2 qt. baking dish (or 8×8 baking dish) spread cream cheese in the bottom of the baking dish. Top with half of the Parmesan cheese. Then layer in all the sauce and pepperoni mixture. Top sauce layer with mozzarella and sprinkle with extra parm, extra pepperoni, and dried oregano.
4) Bake pizza dip for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees F. Let dip cool briefly before serving. Serve with crispy pizza (or pita) chips.
For Pizza chips: Cut pizza crust into chip sizes. Spread out on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Bake chips at 350 degrees F. for 8 minutes until they start to brown and get really crispy. Stir them once or twice as they bake and keep an eye on them as they can burn quickly. They will continue to crisp up as they cool.
