Pepperoni Pizza Spread

Welcome to Red Couch Recipes where I found a yummy dip for you to munch away your post-election elation or disappointment.  Who needs the crust on the pizza?  You certainly will not miss it with this dip.  I am a huge fan of stuffed green olives, and adding them to this spread amplifies the flavor.  It is ooey, gooey and so delicious.
Recipe for Pepperoni Pizza Spread
Adapted from a recipe by Connie Millonovich, of Cudahy, Wisconsin as printed in a Taste of Home Recipe.
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup chopped pepperoni
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup copped green pepper
1 can (6 ounces) ripe olives, drained and chopped
1/2 cup stuffed olives (the green kind)
Crackers, bread sticks, French Bread, or vegetables for spreading
In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients, except the ingredients for spreading.  Transfer to a baking dish, 11-1/2  x 7-inch or similar baking dish,  Bake uncovered for 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until edges are bubbly and lightly browned.  Serve with crackers, bread sticks, French Bread, or vegetables for spreading.

Just a fun picture of my son and his Halloween mask.  He put it on for some friends the other night.  He would put it on and then do a dance that just cracked me up.

Our little friend December wearing the mask and doing his dance.

Thanks for dropping by Red Couch Recipes.  You will love this spread.

YUM -- this is about the way we do LOW-CARB pizza and you are right, who needs the crust :)

That looks just delicious. This is a great time to find new heavy dipping recipes, too, because I'm always in need of something new to bring to a winter party.
