Hot Pizza Dip

8 oz. package cream cheese
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp garlic powder
2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup bottled pizza sauce
1/2 cup green pepper, finely chopped (optional)
1/2 cup red pepper, finely chopped (optional)
3/4 cup pepperoni slices, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine cream cheese, Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Spread over the bottom of a greased 9 inch plate (I use a tart pan or a pie tin). Combine the cheeses. Sprinkle 1/2 of the cheeses over the cream cheese layer. Top with the pizza sauce, peppers and pepperoni. Sprinkle with the remaining cheeses. Bake for 20 minutes or until bubbly. Serve with bread sticks.

Note: If I were ambitious I would make my own bread sticks, I am scared of making bread so, I don't. Instead, I buy Tahoe Joe's garlic herb pizza dough and make bread sticks out of that. For one pan of dip 2 packages of bread sticks just about covers it.

Mmmm ... This sounds so good! Thanks for sharing! I'm going to try it--reminds me of a hot dip I served at Christmas.
