Yummy Recipe Wednesday! (Hot Pizza Dip)

Hello again friends and food fanatics. Welcome to another Yummy Recipe Wednesday. The Super Bowl teams are set and everyone is making their plans for their big Super Bowl parties so I thought this would be a great time to post a recipe that would be perfect for such an event. First some fun facts. There are over 5 billion pizzas sold worldwide in a year with the US buying over 3 billion of those pizzas. The average person eats 46 slices of pizza per year and on average, 350 slices of pizza are eaten every second. With all of that being said, you really can’t go wrong with this recipe that I have for you today. The thing I like most about this recipe is that you can really make it however you like your pizza. I personally like to add a little Italian sausage to my dip or use sausage instead of pepperoni and sometimes I make my dip with Canadian bacon and pineapple which is just amazing. Make it however you want, using the basic recipe below, and I guarantee you won’t have an empty stomach at your party. As always, feel free to leave comments below and be sure to follow @RecipeBlogger on Twitter if you aren’t already so you don’t miss a single new post.

4. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese on top of the cream cheese mixture.
5. Spread the pizza sauce over the top of the cheeses and then sprinkle with the remaining cheese; top with green pepper, pepperoni and olive slices.
