2 (8 oz) packages Cream Cheese
1 small can diced olives
1 package Pepperoni (can use turkey pepperoni, less greasy) diced into small pieces
1/2 jar of pizza sauce
1 cup shredded cheese
Slice the cream cheese and arrange in the bottom of a glass 9x9 baking dish (slicing it up helps it spread easier)
Smooth the cream cheese to act as a crust. Spread the pizza sauce on next. Then sprinkle on the diced olives. Dice up the pepperoni into small pieces and sprinkle over the olives. Top with shredded mozzerella cheese. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes until the cheese is melted and the cream cheese is heated through.(or you can microwave on high for about 7 minutes, till the cheese melts and the rest is heated through) Serve with crackers, pita bread chips, or a thinly sliced bagguette. YUM!! Kids even like this one!!
**for even more pizza flavor, soften the cream cheese and add a pinch of basil and oregano and stir to combine and spread into the glass baking dish. For adults-- you can add chopped green or red peppers and green onions on the top.
