Pizza Dip
Posted by Sara


You'll be glad to have this fabulous Pizza Dip on hand when the hordes of basketball-viewing friends descend. Here's a great recipe from Ruthie Higgins at The Food Gospel According to Ruth.  Better make a couple. It's that good.

I have been asked multiple times "what is your favorite appetizer"....well my friends, here it is! I realize it is a little on the heavy side so you probably don't want to make this when steak and potatoes are on the dinner menu but if you want a dish that your guest will later refer to as "crack", this is you dish!

I received this recipe from a friend of mine when I lived in Atlanta, Susan Nichols, and have been making it for dinner parties, football tailgates and any other occasion I could find an excuse to make it ever since.

Pizza Dip

  • 2 (8 oz.) blocks cream cheese
  • 1 jar pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 pound hot Italian sausage, cooked
  • Brown sausage in a sauce pan.
  • Drain well. This will prevent the dip from being too greasy so make sure to drain the sausage well.
  • In a small pyrex dish spread the cream cheese on the bottom layer.
  • Top with the pizza sauce.
  • Top with the Mozzarella cheese.
  • Finally top the entire dish with the sausage.
  • Cook in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until the sides are bubbly. Serve with Fritos.
