Pizza Dip -

Whoever came up with the original recipe for Pizza Dip is a genius!

I never made this before but had this recipe in my recipe box from Closet Cooking for months.

Before Mother Thyme even originated I received recipes from Closet Cooking.  I remember that day back in March when I received this recipe in my inbox.  I immediately thought to myself I need to make this.  I can’t believe I waited this long before I actually got around to it.

This past weekend we had a birthday celebration for Mr. Mother Thyme and one of the items on the buffet was this dip.  By the end of the evening, this dip was gone!  It was so good, I made it again the next day to have while watching football.  

This dip is pizza on a spoon, with all the goodness you find on your pizza without the crust.  I served it with chunks of Italian bread but you can also serve this crackers, sliced French bread or bagel chips.  

If you have never had Pizza Dip before, I encourage you to give this a try.  It is simply fantastic.  If you have, try this recipe.  It is amazing!
