Hot & Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Dip

Author Notes

My best friend's mother used to make this dip for me when I was in college. It went down fast as lightning then, and I assure you it still will when Superbowl Sunday rolls around. I love this dip for its warm cheesiness and added punch of flavor from the pepperoni. And lets face it, who doesn't like pizza? Hope your Superbowl crowd enjoys it! * There are a million pizza dip recipes but mine is modified from the Noble Pig and my best friend's mother's recipe. —Table9
