Crock Pot Pepperoni Pizza Dip
Adapted from Real Housemoms
This dip has been calling me! When I laid my eyes on this Crockpot Pizza Dip from Real Housemoms, I knew it was time for me to graduate from meats and stews and try my crockpot out for something DIFFERENT.
I made a few modifications to the recipe … I lightened it up a bit with Greek yogurt and added some extra veggies. My daughter’s friend thought the extra garlic I threw in might have been a bit too much, so I’ll warn you: skip the extra garlic if you’re not a garlic-aholic like me.
I don’t have one of those small crockpots that people get just to hold hot dips, so it seemed a little silly in the bottom of my big ol’ crockpot, but it worked! I think if you wanted the dip faster, you could do it in the microwave or stovetop and have it done in a few minutes. (Just saute the veggies first to soften them.) I’m kinda wondering why we bothered to wait an hour for dip when we could have had it ready in 15 minutes? It’s the magic of slow cookers, I guess … they’re slow. But then that gives you time to do other stuff while it’s cooking, right?
- 4 oz. light cream cheese, softened
- 4 oz. nonfat Greek yogurt
- 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
- 1 cup shredded blend of Italian cheeses
- 1/4 cup grated Asiago cheese
- 1 cup pizza sauce
- About 10 pepperoni slices, chopped into bits
- 1/4 - 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1/2 cup chopped tomato
- 1- 2 cloves garlic, peeled & chopped (optional)
- Put all ingredients in a crockpot, stir together as best you can and cook on high for about an hour. Stir it a couple times in process.
- Once the cheeses are all good and melted, turn the crockpot on low. Serve hot with crusty toasts or breadsticks.
