Sausage and pepperoni dip served with French bread or crackers – a perfect Italian appetizer for your party!
pound bulk Italian pork sausage
cup chopped onion
cup sliced pepperoni (2 ounces), chopped
jar (14 ounces) pizza sauce
cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 ounces)
Baguette-style French bread slices or assorted crackers, if desired
Cook sausage and onion in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until sausage is no longer pink; drain. Stir in pepperoni, ketchup and pizza sauce.
Spray 1 1/2- to 3-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Spoon sausage mixture into cooker. Stir in cheese.
Cover and cook on low heat setting 2 to 3 hours or until cheese is melted and mixture is hot.
Scrape down side of cooker with rubber spatula to help prevent edge of dip from scorching. Serve with bread or crackers. Dip will hold on low heat setting up to 2 hours. Stir occasionally.
A tomato pasta sauce can be used instead of the pizza sauce to vary the flavor. Garden vegetable or mushroom and ripe olive also add bits of veggies to the dip.
Who doesn't love the stringy cheese of warm pizza! For that cheesy experience, sprinkle the top of this zesty Italian dip with additional shredded mozzarella cheese just before serving.
