HOT PIZZA DIP
“This pizza-flavored dip goes very fast, so you may want to make two,”
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
¾ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 can (8 ounces) pizza sauce
2 tablespoons chopped green pepper
2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion
Breadsticks or tortilla chips
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and Italian seasoning. Spread in an ungreased 9-in. microwave-safe pie plate. Combine mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses; sprinkle half over the cream cheese. Top with the pizza sauce, remaining cheese mixture, green pepper and onion. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 3-4 minutes or until cheese is almost melted, rotating a half turn several times. Let stand for 1-2 minutes. Serve with breadsticks or tortilla chips. Yield: about 3 cups.
