There is a recipe that's making the rounds on Pinterest called Pizza Dip.   I took this basic recipe and added penne pasta to make Pizza Dip Pasta.

The base recipe calls for a bottom layer of sour cream, cream cheese, mayonnaise and mozzarella.  Added a half box of cooked penne pasta to this layer.  Topped with the pizza sauce and followed with the cheese and toppings.  We cook vegetarian at home so I used just green peppers and olives.  Next time, we're going to add green onion to the toppings as well.

Here's the basic recipe from Closet Cooking

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella, grated
  • 1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan), grated
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella, shredded/grated
  • 1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan), grated
  • 2 ounces pepperoni, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons green pepper, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons black olives, sliced
  1. Mix the cream cheese, sour cream mayonnaise, mozzarella and parmigiano reggiano and spread it across the bottom of a pie plate.
  2. Spread the pizza sauce on top and sprinkle on the cheese, pepperoni, green pepper and olives.
  3. Bake in a preheated 350F oven until the sides are bubbling and the cheese cheese has melted and turned golden brown on top, about 20 minutes.
