  • Spread the pizza sauce evenly over the cream cheese layer, then spread the shredded cheese on top.
  • Add the chopped pepperoni and basil.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, until warm through and cheese is bubbly. If desired, you can broil on HIGH for 1-2 minutes so it’s a little crisp on top.

  • Enjoy warm with crostini and Vita Ice Cherry Lime for a complimentary refreshment!
