Why do Americans love pepperoni? It’s a question that no one seems to have an answer for, but the numbers don’t lie. One-third of all pizzas ordered in the U.S. are topped with pepperoni adding up to nearly 1/4 of a billion pounds of pepperoni consumed on pizzas alone each year.
One thing is certain….pepperoni tastes good on anything. Pasta, sandwiches, casseroles….the possibilities are endless. And, if you’ve never tried pepperoni pizza as a dip, you are missing out. This recipe for Three-Cheese Pepperoni Pizza Dip created in the Country Rebel kitchen is jam-packed with the yumminess of a classic pepperoni pizza and makes an ideal addition to any party, game night, or as a stand-alone meal.
We serve our pizza dip on pizza crust chips we made out of pre-made pizza crust tossed in olive oil, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. We baked the chips at 400 degrees for 5 minutes or just until crispy and brown.
