White Pizza Dip

As soon as I saw this recipe, I knew I had to find an excuse to try it. The problem is that I don't entertain very much, so there are very few reasons to make all of the delicious appetizers I've collected over the years. The solution? Appetizer night! Every once in a while, instead of making one big entree for dinner, I'll make a few appetizers instead. Then I toss together a quick salad, and dinner is served! It's a great way to try out new recipes that I otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity to.

I'm so glad I tried this. This white pizza dip is creamy, addictive and delicious. It comes together very quickly, and it just tastes amazingly good. We ate ours smeared on slices of crusty French bread and had leftovers for a while. When we ran out of French bread, we spread the stuff on toast, which was equally delicious. I can't wait to have another appetizer night, because I'm pretty sure I'll be making this again.

1 envelope Lipton® Recipe Secrets® Savory Herb with Garlic Soup Mix
1 16-ounce container sour cream

1 loaf Italian or French bread, sliced and toasted

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In shallow 1-quart casserole, combine soup mix, sour cream, ricotta cheese, 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese and pepperoni.

2. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese.

3. Bake uncovered 30 minutes or until heated through. Serve with bread.
