This dip is like having a slice of pepperoni pizza in every bite – cheesy, savory, and absolutely irresistible.
You’ll need a total of 40 slices of the HORMEL® Pepperoni Cup N’ Crisp Bold for your pizza dip. 10 of the slices will be quartered and mixed in with the cheeses, and you’ll use at least 30 for the top. Feel free to use more for the top as the edges will curl up forming little cups as they bake.
