Homemade Organic Supreme Pepperoni Pizza Dip

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  •  4 oz. [half-brick] organic cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup organic sour cream
  • 1/4 cup Homemade Organic Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup organic mozzarella, minced (this is the really soft kind)
  • 1/4 cup organic parmigiano reggiano cheese, grated
  • 1 cup The Best Homemade Organic Pizza Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. organic red pepper flakes
  • 2 tsp. organic Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp. Real Salt, divided in half
  • 2 cloves organic garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup organic yellow onion, minced
  • 1/4 cup organic bell pepper, minced
  • 1/4 cup organic cremini mushrooms, minced
  • 2 oz. organic fermented pepperoni
  • organic lard, for frying pepperoni

Here’s How I do it:

  •  Preheat the oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
  • In a small saute pan over medium heat, add some lard and the pepperoni.
  • Saute until the pepperoni is lightly browned on both sides, 2 – 3 minutes.
  • Remove the pepperoni and set it on a plate to cool.
  • Saute the onions, garlic, mushrooms, and bell pepper for 4 – 5 minutes.
  • Add the cream cheese to the toppings and heat until melted.
  • Chop the pepperoni into bite-sized pieces.
  • Put the cheese and vegetable mixture on the bottom of a small casserole dish.
  • Layer the pepperoni bits on top of the vegetable mixture.
  • Spread the pizza sauce on top of the pepperoni.
  • Mix the sour cream, mayonnaise, mozzarella, cheddar, parmesan, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes,1/2 tsp. Real Salt, 1/4 cup Parmesan, and a few turns of freshly ground peppercorn blend.
  • Spread the cheese mixture on top of the pepperoni bits.
  • Bake at 350° Fahrenheit until the sides are bubbling and the cheese has melted and turned golden brown on top, about 20 minutes.
  • Serve with buttery toasted baguette slices, Homemade Organic Garlic and Herb Breadsticks, or butter crackers.
  • Enjoy!
