1 8 oz pkg cream cheese, room temp
1 c mayonnaise
1 c mozzarella cheese, shredded + 1 c for topping
1/4 c fresh parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
1/4 c sweet onion, diced (I prefer Vidalia)
1 c pizza sauce
Your favorite pizza toppings, for example: pepperoni, cooked sausage, black olives, green onions, mushrooms, bell pepper, bacon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, mozzarella, parmesan, garlic powder, ground red pepper, and sweet onion. Stir well. Spread mixture in the bottom of a 10 to 12 inch oven proof pan. Pour the pizza sauce over the cream cheese mixture and spread evenly. Scatter your choice of toppings over sauce then top with 1 c mozzarella cheese. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until hot, bubbly and golden.
Serve with chunks of Italian bread. I like to toast the bread in the oven while the dip is baking. Just place chunks or slices of bread on a cookie sheet and bake 10 to 15 minutes until crispy. Turn bread half way through to toast both sides evenly.
