Homemade Organic Pepperoni Pizza Dip

I was inspired for this recipe by Closet Cooking and Guy Fieri. I have combined elements of both recipes to make my own.

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 cup organic buffalo mozzarella, diced and divided (this is the really soft kind, not the hard block-kind)
  • 1/4 cup organic parmigiano reggiano cheese, grated
  • 1 cup The Best Homemade Organic Pizza Sauce
  • 1/2 cup organic mozzarella, shredded
  • 1 tsp. organic red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp. organic granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp. organic granulated onion
  • 2 tsp. organic Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup organic fermented pepperoni slices
  • organic lard (home rendered preferred), for frying pepperoni

Here’s How I do it:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
  2. In a small saute pan over medium heat, add some lard and the pepperoni.
  3. Saute until the pepperoni is just crisp, 4 to 5 minutes.
  4. Chop the pepperoni into bite-sized pieces.
  5. Mix the cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, 1/2 cup mozzarella, salt, onion, garlic, red pepper flakes and Italian seasoning.  (I added the melted lard, after it cooled, that I used for frying the pepperoni and it made the dip even better!)
  6. Spread it across the bottom of a pie plate.
  7. Spread the pizza sauce on top.
  8. Sprinkle the sauce with pepperoni pieces.
  9. Top the dip with the remaining cheeses.
  10. Bake at 350° Fahrenheit until the sides are bubbling and the cheese has melted and turned golden brown on top, about 20 minutes.
  11. This dip pairs well with toasted buttery slices of baguette or Homemade Organic Garlic and Herb Breadsticks.
