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!

Just eat it with a spoon.

A spoon is good enough.
