Pepperoni Pizza Dip

Sharing is caring!

This one is fun.

I absolutely love dips and appetizers. LOVE them.

What’s that I call myself? Appetizer whore?


So, here’s the story. I make spaghetti all the time. When I say “spaghetti” I mean real spaghetti – like with tomato meat sauce. I can’t stand pasta with plain tomato sauce. It’s just too naked for me. I guess I need more substance; more depth.

I’m high maintenance. Well, only occasionally.

So many times after making my spaghetti, we have tons of sauce leftover, and I put it in a covered pyrex dish and it disappears into the fridge-of-neverending-leftovers-that-nobody-wants-to-touch-because-leftovers-aren’t-fun. You know what’ I’m talking about, right??

All of a sudden we have “nothing to eat”. Why the hell did I invest in all that pyrex??

God forbid somebody eat something they had the day before. I personally love leftovers.

So, this concoction came from a pyrex dish full of spaghetti sauce, pepperoni I had from making pizza last week and a hankering to make something new.

For all of you, of course.

Pepperoni Pizza Dip


  • 8 oz block cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp dried Italian seasoning (plus more to sprinkle on top)
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, divided in half
  • 3 cups spaghetti sauce with meat (you could always use jarred sauce and add browned ground beef)
  • 1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Muenster cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded (or sliced, doesn't matter)
  • Pepperoni slices (as much as you like)


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Mix the cream cheese, tsp of Italian seasoning and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese in a bowl; spread in a 9x11 glass baking dish.
  • Pour the spaghetti sauce over the cream cheese mixture.
  • Sprinkle the remaining Parmesan cheese, Monterey Jack and Mueunster over the sauce.
  • Layer the pepperoni slices and sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until bubbly and the pepperoni is starting to get a little browned around the edges.
  • Serve with pita chips, tortilla chips, or whatever you want to dip it with!

If you’re on Atkins, you’re good to go here.

Just eat it with a spoon.

A spoon is good enough.

    I do love a good spaghetti with meat sauce, it’s so good most especially when the pasta is cooked just right!

    This dip looks amazing! Sadly my husband is lactose intolerant so I’ll have to give this a try when we have company over, or I mean I could just make it for myself!

    Looks so good! I made a pizza dip that is done at the Pampered Chef’s party one time and it was really good. However, this one looks so much better. The pepperoni layered on top really adds to it.

    I love pizza dip. It is a favorite at all of our work lunches. I like to dip carrots and celery in it, but most people dip bread. Thanks for sharing!
